Final Netflix / Marvel's: 'The Defenders' Trailer Posted

The Defenders is available on Netflix from 18 August.

The final trailer of Netflix's hero team-up show "The Defenders" shows that the war for NY is about to begin.

Sigourney Weaver is a bona fide badass and Sci-Fi Queen thanks to roles in the Alien and Ghostbusters franchises (as well as the brilliant Galaxy Quest). "They will disappoint you and if I might give you some advice, the more connections you have, the easier it will be to break you", she says as the heroes' various friends and love interests are shown.

If anyone can do it, it's this motley crew. He is also seen performing some combos with the indestructible Luke Cage.

The counterpoint is that The Defenders is, by its nature, nearly totally inaccessible to newcomers.

"Marvel's The Defenders" follows Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, showrunner Marco Ramirez (Daredevil) discussed what inspirations the writers' room drew upon when crafting The Defenders, specifically explaining how the miniseries' tone owes more to classic cinema that either of Joss Whedon's Avengers films. The reluctance of Jones and the others to formally come together, and then endlessly bickering when they do, is actually a nice nod to the very different origins of The Defenders in the comics. "NY is so densely populated ..."

"But if you've been to NY, you immediately can tell".

We wanted a show that appealed to everybody, so someone new doesn't find themselves with no idea what's going on, while we don't bore the hell out of fans. The series is, and was only ever, meant for people who've been following the saga from the beginning - so why waste so much screen time on labourious, drawn-out scene setting? Remember all that Black Sky business at the end of "Daredevil" Season 2?

It's Morning Radio Personality Trish Walker!

Charlie: "Sometimes superheroes seem God-like". Honestly, just this little pep talk alone for The Defenders makes her one of the better villains in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
