It’s certainly been a long time coming. Basically, since April of 2015, we’ve been waiting for this. Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Daredevil have all debuted on Netflix with at least one season. Now it’s time for The Defenders. And the first full-length trailer is finally here. And it’s pretty damn cool.
I love that it starts with the women. Jessica and Misty, who is still rocking her amazing hair. It’s interesting that the Defenders are introduced to one another in pairs. First, Matt and Jessica meet. Be mindful of the red door Matt walks through when he stops Misty from interrogating Jessica. But of the group, Jessica and Matt are the two detectives, Jessica more so. And it was only right that Danny and Luke meet one another. Their exchange was pretty cool, seeing their powers offset one another.
I’m still curious as to how Luke gets out of prison. I’m sure we’ll see why when the series arrives. But I was assuming Matt would somehow get him out. We still don’t know that it won’t happen, I suppose. Something else I’m curious about is why Danny is not covering his face. This doesn’t make any sense. I want him to wear a mask. If Matt can look silly, so can Danny. No excuse.
Also, I like the fact that there was some humor in this trailer. It looks like there will be a lot in the show, which is what I was hoping for. I want this to be more fun than the four previous shows. Jessica brought a lot of humor in this trailer, which makes sense.
“’Marvel’s The Defenders’ follows Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. A quartet of singular heroes with one common goal – to save New York City. This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realize they just might be stronger when teamed together.”
