The final trailer for the series, which Netflix just unleashed, gives us a bit more insight into what Alexandra's willing to do, and what she's willing to sacrifice (namely, all of New York City) to get things done.
The series will pick up after the events of Iron Fist and will feature Sigourney Weaver as Alexandra, who will be the big bad for the series. Or maybe it's just Iron First, who has a problem with everybody since there's a moment where he punches Daredevil in the face and a quick shot where Luke Cage appears to be throwing a jab his way. Defenders has been a long time in the making, and it's hard to believe it's nearly here.
I guess we'll find out (to some degree) when The Defenders premieres tomorrow - August 18th - on Netflix. That's right - despite the truncated episode run, The Defenders falls victim to the same interminable slow-burn malaise that's afflicted most of the Marvel shows to date.
Daredevil and Jessica Jones both began in 2015. The new series will see the quartet of singular heroes with one common goal - to save New York City. With that said, if you have seen the other shows, the idea is to never make a show that's redundantly telling you something you already know about these other stories. If you have not seen these shows, you should definitely watch them on Netflix before watching The Defenders! . "NY is so densely populated".
Marvel TV and Netflix are still keeping huge chunks of information regarding the narrative specifics of The Defenders tightly under wraps, but fans are assured that whatever the team goes through in the special ensemble show will help progress their individual journeys moving forward.
It's little surprise that Ritter steals most scenes as Jessica Jones, always ready with a quippy put-down and frequently breaking off from the boys' club to pursue her own leads.
