These San Diego Comic Con trailers are coming thicker and faster than a porn star who’s been eating Campbell’s condensed Cream of Mushroom soup for a month.
Next up is Marvel’s The Defenders which sees blind ninja Dardevil, smart-ass detective who can fly, Jessica Jones, bulletproof ex-con Luke Cage and a whingey little billionaire brat who can just about do some kung fu, Iron Fist team up after the peaks and troughs of their own individual series.
“Marvel’s The Defenders centers on four outsider heroes that have to put aside their personal issues and come together when a villainous sect threatens to destroy New York City.”
The good news is, Danny Rand won’t be getting all the screen time, Sigourney Weaver looks to be a worthy opponent, Elektra is back, Stix is back and with some seismic shocks heading through NYC – there finally looks to be some supernatural force at play; a real big bad as opposed to… ya know – sweet little old Chinese lady, Madam Gao.
The four heroes seem to have some real chemistry and the writers have gone down the sarcastic route which is true to form with Jessica doing most of the wise-cracking. All we need now is Vincent D’onofrio’s Wilson Fisk/Kingpin and Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle/The Punisher and… what’s that you say?
The Defenders drops on Netflix on 18th August. Don’t binge it all in one go!
