Watch The Final Trailer For 'Marvel's The Defenders'

The Defenders review Marvel’s Netflix heroes unite in uneven romp

Krysten Ritter stars as the title hero in the series and was joined in season one by Mike Colter (Luke Cage), Rachael Taylor (Trish Walker), Carrie-Anne Moss, Eka Darville, Erin Moriarty, and Wil Traval.

Taking nearly half of the entire season to bring the full team together is a freaky decision, making the first two episodes feel especially drawn-out, with much of the opening episodes spent checking in on the main characters since the ends of their respective shows. This is the story of four solitary figures - Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Daredevil, and Iron Fist, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realise they might be stronger as a team. I'm interested in seeing what Sigourney Weaver will bring to the series. As her voiceover threatens both New York City and everyone that our heroes personally love, I legit shivered. Clips hinting at possible in-fighting within the group are shown in the trailer, as Scott Glenn's Stick, who was Daredevil's childhood mentor, comes to band the group together. That way, it will be much easier for Danny and Matt to eventually convince their teammates to work together, and to give them a better chance of defeating the Hand and ultimately, Alexandra. If the two-year lead up to this event was good for one thing, it's that the lead actors are all settled in their characters now, allowing for some great chemistry as their distinct personalities bounce off each other. Defenders has been a long time in the making, and it's hard to believe it's nearly here.

Finn: "When you have a scene that's just Jessica Jones or Luke Cage, for example, the tone references their world". You wouldn't want to miss it.

That makes the ponderous set-up even more confusing.

Maybe more than ever. Now, he has a new outlook on life, and that could be the foundation for a relationship with Danny / Iron Fist.

Nifty breaches 10000 mark, Sensex at new high on fund inflows
Stocks consolidated their gains on Thursday after US Fed minutes signalled uncertainties over near-term rate hikes. On Wednesday, the key benchmark indices rose 1 per cent which is their biggest single day gain since July 10.

So, when will these heroes (and others) be seen on Netflix?

Finn: "The first four episodes, we're coming together". There, Doctor Strange, The Hulk, Silver Surfer, and Sub-Mariner were loosely affiliated as a "non-team". And the Iron Fist is still searching for his identity.

While the tone and inspirations behind the series appear to be different from that of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's theatrical entries, one way the Netflix dramas will look to imitate their big-screen counterparts is through phases.

Watch the final trailer above.

Riding the slipstream of the Avengers, X-Men and Fantastic Four, "The Defenders" is promising to bring a more tortured and cerebral superhero vibe to Netflix's ever-growing repertoire of Marvel series.
