Four new motion posters arrived earlier this week for Marvel’s The Defenders, teasing the inter-connectivity between the four central characters in the Netflix miniseries, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Danny Rand. Now additional posters depict two of the Defenders outside their traditional stomping grounds.
The first shows Krysten Ritter’s Jessica Jones sitting out Pop’s Barber Shop, a key location from Luke Cage, accompanied by a warning to “Get the swear jar ready.” The second reveals Mike Colter’s Luke Cage outside Josie’s, the seedy Hell’s Kitchen watering hole favored on Daredevil by Matt Murdock, Foggy Nelson and Karen Page.

One can’t help but wonder what the dynamic will be between Luke and Jessica when The Defenders debuts in August. In the first season of Jessica Jones, the two struck up a romantic relationship, much like they did in the comics. However, after Luke learned of Jessica’s involvement in his wife’s death, the two parted ways. Then, of course, Luke became close with Rosario Dawson’s Claire Temple in the first season of his own series. Based on the recently released trailer, it seems as if Luke and Claire will still together at the start of The Defenders.
Arriving Aug. 18 on Netflix, The Defenders stars Charlie Cox, Krysten Ritter, Mike Colter, Finn Jones, Simone Missick, Elodie Yung, Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson, Carrie-Anne Moss, Eka Darville, Rosario Dawson, Rachael Taylor, Scott Glenn, Jessica Henwick and Sigourney Weaver.
