Three months after Charlie Cox, Krysten Ritter, Mike Colter and Finn Jones assembled on stage at New York Comic Con, Marvel's Defenders have reunited on the cover of Entertainment Weekly.

If you were expecting the Defenders in costume, you may be disappointed. However, they are together, atop a taxi cab.


And if you're hoping for a lot of details about the team-up, you're not going to find it in the accompanying article. However, it does provide clues as to where -- offices at Midland Circle, a location familiar to "Daredevil" viewers -- and, sort of, how they come together.

“Every one of them is following their own trail of bread crumbs, trying to unpack a mystery in New York,” showrunner Marco Ramirez tells the magazine. "We wanted them all caught off guard. Once they’re in that room together, it’s kind of like, ‘Oh, s—, who are you?'”

A video designed to introduce each of the four principal characters delves a little into the team dynamic, revealing that Iron Fist may be central to confronting the threat. "So, Danny Rand -- he's the one who knows really what's going on," Jones says. "He knows how serious this situation is."

That would make sense, considering that Midland Circle suggests the enormous hole at Midland Circle discovered by Matt Murdock and Elektra in "Daredevil" Season Two is tied to the Hand and their mysterious (possible) supernatural shenanigans. That seems entirely up Iron Fist's alley. How Sigourney Weaver's still-unnamed villain ties into that remains to be seen.

"Marvel's The Defenders" debuts this summer on Netflix. "Iron Fist" arrives March 17.
