Marvels Netflix series of New York street level heroes finally come together Avengers style as The Defenders. They’ve been fighting their own seperate battles since the Battle of New York that saw the Avengers stave off an alien Chitauri invasion from Loki and Thanos. They’ve come together to face Sigourney Weavers Alexandra, a brand new character created for the eight episode series whom I believe is leading The Hand. The series stars Charlie Cox (Daredevil), Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones), Mike Colter (Luke Cage), Finn Jones (Iron Fist), Sigourney Weaver (Alexandra), Jessica Henwick (Colleen Wing), Rosaria Dawson (Claire Temple), Elodie Yung (Electra Natchios), Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), Wai Ching Ho (Madame Gao), Simone Missick (Misty Knight), Scott Glenn (Stick), Carrie -Anne Moss (Jeri Hogarth), Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), & Rachael Taylor (Trish Walker). The Defenders will be available to binge beginning Friday, August 18th only on Netfix.
