What do you do when you commission four separate TV series based in the same city and cinematic universe and have (at least) half those shows go on to become critical successes with the other half looking to achieve a similar status?
If you answered: Throw the four protagonists together into a fifth series then you would be absolutely correct!
The teaser for Marvel and Netflix’s The Defenders is light on any actual scenes from the series (since it is still in pre-production) but heavy on fancy graphics and a remixed version of Nirvana’s “Come as you are.” The titles of the four main shows (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist) are torn apart and reconstituted in a ransom note style to form The Defenders logo. It’s strange to think that something so simple can elicit such chills of excitement, but there you have it.
2017 can’t come soon enough
