Marvel today revealed that its next upcoming Netflix series, The Defenders, will debut on the popular streaming site on August 18. This date was also affirmed close by the show’s new trailer that just came out. The teaser shows individuals from the Defenders which includes the great Iron Fist (Finn Jones), Cage (Mike Colter), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), and Daredevil (Charlie Cox) all standing in a lift. After which we further see Jessica Jones close the trailer by crushing the lift’s camera.
The trailer itself doesn’t give much and this mystery is very little to go on. However, the viewer can see the name Midland Circle Financial written on a part in the lift. Also, as per theories from the speculators and fans, the voice saying “going down” is that of Sigourney Weaver, the one who is supposed to play the show’s ultimate villain, Alexandra.
The characters present in the lift are also joined by an assortment of characters from Netflix’s other individual shows including Daredevil’s Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson) and Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll), Jessica Jones’ Jeri Hogarth (Carrie-Anne Moss), and Luke Cage’s Misty Knight, played by Simone Missick. Again the vague trailer does allow one’s imagination to run wild and come up with mind blowing theories.
With the addition to the trailer, Marvel has propelled another viral advertising site for The Defenders that offers a couple of more backstory insights about the show. So what exactly are they playing at?
The Defenders takes after the not so fortunate Marvel Show Iron Fist, which did not really wow the audience and didn’t leave much to talk about. It debuted in March and was deemed lackluster in comparison to Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Daredevil .
