Marvel and Netflix's "The Defenders" will bring together the heroes of Hell's Kitchen -- Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist -- to combat a common foe that only the four of them can defeat together. While we know that foe is Sigourney Weaver's Alexandra, her motivation and other details remain a mystery. New photos from the "Defenders" set give additional looks at Weaver, along with cast members Krysten Ritter, Mike Colter, Jessica Henwick, Charlie Cox, and Finn Jones.
Our first group of photos show Weaver staring intently in the backseat of a limousine. Later she is seen sitting alone at a dinner table. Ritter and Colter's Jessica Jones and Luke Cage are out on the streets of New York City in their familiar leather jacket and bullet-ridden hoodie. Cage gets physical with a gentleman, possibly shaking him down for information for a lead. Henwick's Colleen Wing takes a stroll down the middle of the street brandishing a white-handled sword and sheath. Jones looks dapper in a suit and tie as Danny Rand, and Ritter and Cox's Matt Murdock share laughs as Cox shows off his balancing skills with his walking stick.
"The Defenders" will see our four heroes meet at Midland Circle, where Matt Murdock and Elektra discovered the mysterious hole in "Daredevil" Season 2. Fans have speculated that the location implies the Hand will play a role in the “crisis” that the new team will face.
The series will feature eight episodes and will premiere in Summer 2017. "The Defenders" also stars Elodie Yung, Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson, Carrie-Anne Moss, Eka Darville, Rosario Dawson, Rachael Taylor and Scott Glenn.
