Get one last look at The Defenders before the full season hits later this week
The team up of the year is almost upon us.
Netflix has slipped out one final teaser trailer for its imminent superhero supergroup show The Defenders, highlighting how Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist end up fighting alongside each other in order to save New York City.
Led by Daredevil's blind martial arts master Stick, the quartet of heroes find themselves up against a mysterious organisation known as The Hand. The four don't exactly get along like a house on fire, but with millions of lives on the line, they'll have to sideline their differences and stick to witty quips and snide retorts in order to take down their common enemy.
While Netflix's Marvel series have struggled to hit the same high that the first season of Daredevil did back in 2015, the ensemble nature of The Defenders looks like it could be a return to form for the streaming service's superhero shenanigans. We won't have to wait long to find out. The full season of The Defenders will launch on Netflix this Friday 18 August.
Fans of Netflix's gritty take on the Marvel universe will be glad to know that Disney's plan on splitting from Netflix will not affect Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, The Defenders or any other original series that Netflix makes based on Marvel properties. Only the Marvel movies are at risk of leaving Netflix, with Disney intending to remove them from the service by the end of 2018.
