So far the trailers for the upcoming superhero team-up on Netflix, Marvel’s The Defenders, have been about establishing the forming of the team, surrounded by the modified Nervana song “Come As You Are”. The latest trailer to hit the web gives us a lot more clarity as to what’s going on when the series premieres August 18, 2018. Spoiler alert: it’s that fated war Stick keeps going on about.
There’s a lot to love about what Netflix has shown us with this show. The action has looked top-notch, the chemistry between the quattro(?) has been fun to watch, and we’ve gotten a decent enough look at Sigourney Weaver as this show’s big bad. With this trailer, it looks like Elektra will be joining the Hand as they try to take over New York, which means all kinds of drama for our fearless heroes (specifically the one with cool ears).
Despite the lackluster Iron Fist series, Netflix has done a really good job with the Marvel rights they acquired a few years ago. This team-up is the culmination of that hard work that looks to be paying off.
Marvel’s The Defenders premieres August 18, 2017, exclusively on Netflix!
