New Defenders Teaser Video Finds The Heroes After A Fight
With the launch of Iron Fist, we have now met all of the characters that will band together – not always willingly – to form The Defenders for Marvel and Netflix. A (very brief) teaser video featuring them has now arrived online.
The anonymously named "Midland Circle Security Elevator B" is, of course, a nod to the dodgy corporation we first met in Daredevil's second season, and the people on the footage are Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Danny "Iron Fist" Rand (Finn Jones), all looking like they've just been in a brawl.
There are some interesting touches here – why is Danny seemingly more exhausted than the others, for example, and we guess Matt didn't have his costume along with him – and little clues leading to viral info. The address in the top left corner leads to a site for the New York Bulletin (where Deborah Ann Woll's Karen Page works), itself a treasure trove of other sites based around the shared superhero universe. Oh, and when Jessica smashes the camera, the footage halts at 8:18:20:17, or to translate from American dating protocols, 18 August 2017, suggesting we have a release date for the show.
The Defenders will find the foursome going up against the mysterious machinations of Sigourney Weaver's Alexandra, with ramifications for their own separate shows.
