Marvel’s head of TV Jeph Loeb has announced that Sigourney Weaver has scored the key role of the villain in Marvel and Netflix’s upcoming event series “The Defenders”.
The surprise reveal was made at New York Comic Con with fans getting to see Weaver arrive onstage next to the Defenders themselves – Charlie Cox, Finn Jones, Krysten Ritter, and Mike Colter.
What villain Weaver will play is the obvious question, and that is unknown at this time. Production on “The Defenders” is slated to begin in a few weeks ahead of a late 2017 premiere.
