After much teasing the trailer for Marvel’s new Netflix series has been released. The Defenders features the protagonists from Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist teaming up to protect New York. In the comics The Defenders was originally made up of characters like the Hulk, Doctor Strange, Silver Surfer and Namor. Unfortunately the Hulk and Doctor Strange, and Namor are tied up in the MCU and Fox may own the rights to the Silver Surfer. This incarnation of the team will probably take inspiration from later rosters. Given that Luke Cage and Iron fist are on the team “Heroes For Hire” might have been a more fitting title. The Defenders will hit Netflix on August 18th.
