Trailer Watch: The Defenders Assemble In The New Trailer
Marvel Studios’ Netflix division dropped a new, full trailer for their next team-up series, The Defenders. It’s got some action, a few good moments of character, and Claire Temple.
Each of the four existing Netflix series’ heroes—Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Daredevil/Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox), Luke Cage (Mike Colter), and Danny Rand/Iron Fist (Finn Jones)—get their moments to shine and show off their abilities.
Jessica gets a few choice moments to snark and roll her eyes while also kicking ass.
Daredevil shows off his legal prowess and also gets to kick some ass.
Luke Cage takes bullets, punches and hits galore while earnestly explaining his reasons for vigilante justice.
Danny Rand…gets a fist that glows a lot, and uses a wall-leap we’ve seen Daredevil use before in a hallway fight.
Secret superstar of this trailer, though, is Claire Temple, whose superpower is the greatest of all: not putting up with the above characters’ bullshit, and convincing them to join forces to begin with. Seriously, these shows would be half as fun without Rosario Dawson around to tell everyone they’re full of shit.
You can watch Claire Temple tell the Defenders to cut the crap August 18th of this year.
