In addition to the blockbuster Avengers films, the Marvel Comic Universe has colonized Netflix with Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Daredevil and Iron Fist. Those fictional heroes join forces in The Defenders, a limited series in which they battle a common foe, The Hand. Netflix released the show’s first trailer and it features spliced up audio from Nirvana’s 1991 track “Come As You Are,” setting a gritty, doomed tone throughout the preview.
In the series, Krysten Ritter reprises her role as Jessica Jones alongside Charlie Cox (Daredevil), Mike Colter (Luke Cage) and Finn Jones (Iron Fist). Carrie-Ann Moss and Rosario Dawson reprise their roles from their respective origin series. Most intriguingly, Sigourney Weaver is playing a new character named Alexandra—action movie fans rejoice!
