Marvel & Netflix’s “The Defenders” Launch Trailer

Marvel Television and Netflix have released one final trailer for its event series “The Defenders” to time with the show’s launch in a few hours.

Matt Murdock/Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Danny Rand/Iron Fist return and team up to stop the rise of The Hand and the woman at its center – Alexandra (Sigourney Weaver).

Reviews so far seem to put it behind the first seasons of “Daredevil” and “Jessica Jones,” but ahead of the rest of the Marvel/Netflix pack and a notable step up after the misfire of “Iron Fist”.

Charlie Cox, Krysten Ritter, Mike Colter, Finn Jones, Sigourney Weaver, Elodie Yung, Scott Glenn, Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson, Carrie-Anne Moss, Rachael Taylor, Eka Darville, Simone Missick and Jessica Henwick co-star in the film which arrives on August 18th.
