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.
