Last night Marvel and Netflix released a new behind-the-scenes featurette for their upcoming collaborative release – Marvel’s The Defenders.
The featurette provides us with a look behind each of the members of the team, giving viewers an understanding of what to expect going into this new season. All four are in a place of internal conflict and, due to The Hand’s activities growing in intensity, they are brought together to combat this evil hopefully once and for all.
Marvel’s The Defenders will take place a bit after the events of each individual Marvel series we’ve seen so far: Marvel’s Daredevil, Marvel’s Jessica Jones, Marvel’s Luke Cage, and Marvel’s Iron Fist. The Hand is back with a vengeance and have brought Elektra (Elodie Yung) back from the dead to wreck some major havoc.
That is not all the gang has to worry about. Alexandra (Signourney Weaver) appears to be the big bad of this season and we don’t know too much about what all she has planned. Whatever it is, it can’t be good.
The official synopsis for the series is below:
Marvel’s The Defenders follows Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Iron Fist (Finn Jones). A quartet of singular heroes with one common goal – to save New York City. This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realize they just might be stronger when teamed together.
Marvel’s The Defenders will launch globally on Netflix in August 18, 2017. Make sure you check out the featurette below and let us know your thoughts.
