Man oh man, today is a good day for fans of sci-fi and comics. Not only did we get a trailer for the new Dark Tower film, but we also have the official full-length trailer for the upcoming Defenders show on Netflix. For those of you who’ve been living under a rock with a starfish for the past three years, the Defenders is sort of a smaller scale Avengers, on Earth, in New York City. Comprised of heroes (or anti-heroes) Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Danny Rand, aka, The Iron Fist. Though not part of the Defenders, I’d still like to see The Punisher show up. He stole the show in Daredevil season 2, so he’d be totally welcome in my book.
This show is following up on the ill-received show, Iron First, that premiered back in March. It will build upon the shows Netflix and Marvel have already laid out (i.e. Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and yes, Iron Fist) and will see our collective group of heroes battling the dangerous ninja group, The Hand.
Also expected in the show are many of the supporting characters like Foggy Nelson, Karen Page and probably Colleen Wing. The trailer does show off Claire Temple aka the Night Nurse and Danny in Colleen Wing’s dojo, so again, she’s a lock. We also get to see a glimpse of Sigourney Weaver’s character, an awaking of Electra and a new “hallway” fight scene, this time, with all four heroes. Overall, Im psyched to see this show and how it sets up Season 3 of Daredevil, presumably for next March.
Check out the trailer below and let us know your thoughts.
Much like The Dark Tower, The Defenders will also premier in one big bulk drop in August, so you can binge until you pass out.
