We still only have one full trailer for the Defenders on Netflix, and we're just over a month away from release. Empire released a new promo image today showing all four members of the team lined up and ready to go.
The official date is August 18th for release, but we'll only be getting eight episodes instead of the normal 13. The synopsis for the season is a bit bland, and is as follows
“Marvel’s The Defenders” follows Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. A quartet of singular heroes with one common goal – to save New York City. This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realize they just might be stronger when teamed together.”
Surprisingly it makes no difference of the villain, Ms. Sigourney Weaver. All we know so far is that her name is Alexandra and most likely a member if the Hand thanks to a friendly costume designer.
Could she be the beast in the hole or is that what Elektra is? There is so much intrigue around the Defenders, and hopefully only having eight episodes will make the action even more intense.
