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.
