Our First Look at Marvel’s Defenders, All Together at Last, and Their Nemesis: Sigourney Weaver


It’s been a long road to Marvel and Netflix’s Defenders series, where all four of their TV heroes (including Iron Fist, whose show hasn’t yet premiered), will take on a villain together like one, big (probably dysfunctional) superhero family. Now that it’s finally drawing close, Netflix has released, through Entertainment Weekly, the first look at the small-screen superhero team all together.

Along with the above cover featuring the whole gang, EW also released a series of set photos (and some promotional images you can find on their site) from the show, including a shot of Sigourney Weaver in her role as the series’ villain. Exactly who she’s playing is still unknown, and with Iron Fist not set to debut until March 17, it could be a while until we find out. Heck, we’re still waiting to find out what’s up with that giant hole in the ground from the last season of Daredevil.

Anyway, enjoy!
