The first trailer for the MarvelNetflix culmination series The Defenders has arrived.

It’s all been leading to this. Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Iron Fist (Finn Jones) are all forced to move past their differences & personal challenges and work together to take on a big new villain, Alexandra (Sigourney Weaver).

“The war for New York is here,” Scott Glenn’s Stick tells the group. “So get your shit together.”

It’s an exciting trailer, giving us a nice look at how our heroes interact with one another and teasing some of the big developments on the way. We’re also given a look at a few of the other returning characters, including a not-quite-pleasant resurrected Elektra, and are introduced to Weaver’s cold-as-ice-looking villainess.

All 8 episodes of Marvel’s The Defenders, which also brings back Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson), Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll), Misty Knight (Simone Missick), Trish Walker (Rachel Taylor), Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson), Malcolm Ducasse (Eka Darville), Jeri Hogarth (Carrie-Anne Moss) & Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick), will hit Netflix on August 18.

Marvel’s The Defenders follows Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Iron Fist (Finn Jones). 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. The Netflix original series will launch globally on August 18, 2017.
