Netflix’s Marvel Super-Series the Defenders brings together four people who should never be in the same room together. That’s the same strategy that worked for the MCU’s The Avengers, but set in smaller, more personal ways.
It takes until the last ten minutes of the third episode for Daredevil, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage to come together, but it’s a powerful meeting that is nicely set up by showing the individual paths that lead them into that situation.
A dying woman (Sigourney Weaver) with unlimited resources (and a deal with The Hand) is the antagonist for the first season of Marvel’s The Defenders – and she has a cavalier attitude toward the city of New York.
‘It’s just a city,’ she says to the resurrected Elektra (Elodie Yung) – even as she’s plotting to help The Hand reduce it to rubble.
The SDCC 2017 trailer is pretty terrific – the heroes have definitely brought their A-game in response to the quality of foe they face.
Marvel’s The Defenders premiere on August 18th, only on Netflix.
‘The war for New York is here,’ intones Stick. ‘So get your $#!+ together!’
The first trailer gives us Stick’s point-of-view in regard to who the Defenders are – ‘You four: the devil of Hell’s Kitchen; the smart-ass detective; the righteous ex-con and the kid with the glowing fist…’
Plus, our first look at Sigourney Weaver’s villainous Alexandra – and look inside that casket we saw getting opened yesterday.
Netflix’s Marvel’s The Defenders premiere on August 18th.
‘I haven’t taught you everything,’ intones Stick in the opening seconds of the final trailer for season two of Marvel’s Daredevil.
In the action-packed trailer, we begin to see that – however much progress Matt Murdock might think he’s made – there’s so much more going on. And then there’s that calm proclamation by Elektra that does not bode well…
Marvel’s Daredevil: Season Two comes to Netflix on Friday, March 18th. Check out the new trailer after the break.
Marvel’s Daredevil was one of the best new shows of the last year, melding action superheroics with Martin Scorsese darkness and flair.
Marvel’s Joe Quesada has, once again, produced the first concept art for DD season two and it’s sneaky clever – highlighting both major Marvel characters who will appear in the new season. Check it out after the jump.
Meet Matt Murdock. A blind New York City attorney who becomes blinded during a tragic accident as a boy but becomes imbued with extraordinary senses. He fights for justice with more than just his legal expertise–he is the masked vigilante known as Daredevil. Netflix released Daredevil on April 10 to excited Marvel comics fans. It was met with an overzealous response–they have been picked up for season 2 just ten days after their premiere! Charlie Cox, who plays Daredevil, along with Rosario Dawson, who plays nurse Claire Temple joined reporters to talk about Marvel’s “Daredevil”.
Netflix’s Daredevil series is something of a groundbreaker. Marvel’s blind superhero has long been a critical favorite and, it seems, the darker the comic got, the more popular it became.
The series, created by Drew Goddard – who wrote the first two episodes and is credited as an executive producer, captures the feel of the versions of the character popularized by the teams of Frank Miller and Klaus Janson and Brian Michael Bendis (Powers) and Alex Maleev. It’s a kind of Mean Streets take on Hell’s Kitchen’s best known costumed hero.
