Marvel’s The Defenders will arrive ready to binge in just a few weeks, and Comic-Con can always be counted on to whet fans’ appetite for what’s to come. In the miniseries’ latest trailer, Alexandra (Sigourney Weaver) intones that she and they aren’t that different, and that they’re just on opposing sides in a war. But that war will decide the future of New York City.
The Defenders is Netflix’s major crossover event for its Marvel series up until this point, starring Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. The four heroes will be facing off against Alexandra and the Hand, the undead ninja group that has been working behind the scenes since Daredevil’s first season.
Attendees in Hall H got to see the first episode of the miniseries, and the reception has been positive so far. Now the rest of us just have to see it. The Defenders premieres on August 18th.
