“The war for New York is here,” says Stick in his usual laconic tones, as Nirvana’s “Come As You Are” struggles to get going in the background. “So get your shit together.” He has a way with word, that one. It’s the first trailer for the latest Marvel/Netflix series, The Defenders, which sees characters from Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist coming together in a superhero pick’n’mix to bring down Sigourney Weaver’s big bad. Looks like Power Man (as Cage was known in the comics) and Iron Fist don’t get off to the friendliest of starts. And seems Elektra is getting resurrected as well!
Marvel’s The Defenders will be available to stream on Netflix from 18 August.
