Final 'The Defenders' Trailer: The Only Way Out Of Here Is Together

What Caused The Earthquake On 'The Defenders'? The Natural Disaster Probably Wasn't Natural At All

Netflix's latest Marvel Comics-inspired series, Marvel's The Defenders, drops Friday, Aug. 18, at 12:01am PT, and ahead of that, the streaming service released a final trailer for the show on Thursday morning.

She notices that the four heroes - Luke Cage (Mike Colter), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Daredevil (Charlie Cox) and Iron Fist (Finn Jones) - have formed a bond, but she promises that it's temporary.

The counterpoint is that The Defenders is, by its nature, nearly totally inaccessible to newcomers. Don't count on it being all smooth sailing for the team, though, with Jessica ending the trailer with one of her signature barbs, this time aimed at "Iron Clad".

The Defenders airs bright and early at 3 am EST on Netflix! More down to earth than "The Avengers", they aren't necessarily team players, which is part of the fun. Honestly, I haven't been sure how to feel about The Defenders, but I'm going to go on the record here and say that even if somehow the show isn't great, it will be worth it just to watch Sigourney Weaver burn everything down.

Alexandra is certainly relishing that power in this trailer as we see her in action meeting the heroes who would oppose her.

The trailer also previews plenty of fight scenes, but it's not all doom and gloom-at one point Jessica Jones also manages to get in a amusing diss on the rather smug Iron Fist, so maybe he'll be taken down a few pegs in this series. A quartet of singular heroes with one common goal - to save New York City. "NY is so densely populated".

We wanted a show that appealed to everybody, so someone new doesn't find themselves with no idea what's going on, while we don't bore the hell out of fans. Remember all that Black Sky business at the end of "Daredevil" Season 2?

Alexandra seems determined to divide the newly united superheroes.

While critics have been speaking highly of the Marvel-Netflix series, Variety writes, "The Defenders is a workmanlike series that gets the job done with a reasonable amount of energy and a few bursts of flair".

It's little surprise that Ritter steals most scenes as Jessica Jones, always ready with a quippy put-down and frequently breaking off from the boys' club to pursue her own leads.
