To date there have been five seasons of Marvel shows on Netflix: Two of Daredevil, and one each of Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. All have been hits except Iron First, which took a critical beating–have ranged from good to great. In a trailer that dropped this morning, we get to see what it looks like when they come together for Marvel’s The Defenders.
With such different personalities, the team up doesn’t go smoothly at first. There’s bickering and punching as everyone tries to feel each other out. As is a pretty standard trope, the larger threat of Sigourney Weaver’s villain bring them together. Also in the trailer are a ton of side characters from the shows, including Misty Knight, Stick, Claire Temple, and Elektra in a potentially villainous role.
You’ll have the entire summer to rewatch each show. The Defenders arrives on August 18.
