Following the first season wrap on “The Defenders,” a new piece of promo art has been unveiled. The artwork, which was unveiled during the show’s recent wrap party, appears to be a piece of art from none other than Joe Quesada, Marvel’s Chief Creative Officer, and was unveiled by a member of the show’s craft services.
The above artwork sees the four Defenders — sporting the associated colors of their characters — joined by series villain Sigourney Weaver, who is playing a character named Alexandra, as well as what appears to be Elodie Yung’s Elektra.
Typically, Marvel and Netflix unveil these posters ahead of convention appearances, such as New York Comic Con and/or San Diego Comic Con, and hand them out to fans. With it only being March, it’s too early to say if this will be the poster handed out at this year’s SDCC — assuming Netflix & Marvel make a return there this year for “The Defenders” — or if it’s merely a collector’s item for the crew. Either way, it’s a good reminder that we’re officially one step closer to our first look at the highly-anticipated miniseries now that production has finally wrapped.
Debuting on Netflix in 2017, “The Defenders” is a production of Marvel Television developed for television by Douglas Petrie and Marco Ramirez, starring Charlie Cox, Krysten Ritter, Mike Colter, Finn Jones, Elodie Yung and Sigourney Weaver.
