It’s like 2012 all over again. Marvel heroes who’ve been introduced in their own individual adventures are coming together to take on a massive threat. This time, it’s happening on Netflix instead of the big screen when The Defenders arrives this August. The first trailer covers the meet cutes, pairing Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) with Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) and Luke Cage (Mike Colter) with Danny Rand (Finn Jones).
Together, they’ll have to confront Sigourney Weaver’s still unnamed villain and also, it appears, a resurrected Elektra (Elodie Yung). Sure, they’re supposed to win, but those are tough odds from any superhero squad.
The Defenders debuts on Netflix on August 18.
