The Defenders – Street-Level Avengers!

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.

It’s Just a City – The Defenders’ SDCC 2017 Trailer!

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.

Not Here To Make Friends Trailer: Marvel’s The Defenders!

‘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.

Good times.

Netflix’s Marvel’s The Defenders premiere on August 18th.

Marvel’s Jessica Jones – Shades of Hammett, Chandler and Lee!

Marvels-Jessica-Jones

Marvel’s Jessica Jones is quite possibly the best entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far. The series’ first season is liberally sprinkled with the kind of plot and dialogue you might find in the best work of Dashiell Hammett or Philip Chandler – and seasoned with the kind of problematic superheroic action of a Stan Lee (though the actual use of powers is not as overt, for the most part, as with Netflix’s Daredevil series).

Jones is a former superhero (it ended badly for her) who has taken to working as a private investigator in Hell’s Kitchen. She is touchy, tough, paranoid and suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome. She can’t stop herself from trying to help innocents who are in trouble, but she hides those impulses under snark, cynicism and a bottle of Wild Turkey (or some other equally vile concoction). If there was a poster person for Damaged Goods Hero, she would be on it.
