When Marvel announced in 2013 that Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist would get their own TV shows on Netflix, it was also revealed that the heroes would eventually team up in a Defenders miniseries. To the causal Marvel fan, the chance of seeing a superhero team besides the Avengers is exciting, but hardcore comic book fans know that the MCU’s Defenders are different than the earlier iterations from the comics. However, using street-level heroes rather than the original set of members makes sense in terms of how the Marvel Cinematic Universe is unfolding.
The first video, which frames the new footage with clips from previous “Daredevil” seasons and “Jessica Jones,” features star Mike Colter as the titular hero, putting bad guys through walls and allowing them to break fists on his diamond-hard skin.
- The second video is a proper trailer for the series, opening as Luke is wrestling with his conscience, debating whether the life of a hero is for him. Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s “Shimmy Shimmy Ya” kicks in as the rest of the teaser unfolds, and Luke unleashes his powers on those who deserve it.
- Danny Rand fights relentlessly to regain everything he’s lost in Marvel’s Iron Fist, coming soon to Netflix.
- Marvel’s The Defenders will unite Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist, as they face their biggest threat yet.
