Marvel’s The Defenders is being released tonight, ushering in a brand new team up between the four small time superheros of New York City. This brand new team that’s been appropriately titled “The Defenders” Consists of Matt Murdock the devil of Hell’s Kitchen, Jessica Jones the private detective, The Hero of Harlem; Luke Cage and Danny Rand The Immortal Iron Fist. These supercharged four use their powers for the greater good and defend Manhattan from baddies.
You can expect Sigourney Weaver flexing her power as she leads an ancient organisation towards complete control of Manhattan’s streets. Weaver described the character as “really smart”, “very in charge”, and more of an adversary than a villain. Her performance in the trailers alone is enough to drive the hype train all the way across Twitter. With multiple trailers on YouTube showing off the defenders, they quickly secured their spots in fans hearts while sporting an unplugged version of “Come As You Are”.
Check out the trailers and join the hype with the #Defenders trend on Twitter. You can go watch The Defenders on Netflix or at a friend’s house if you don’t have Netflix. Not everyone has Netflix, that’s okay!
