It was always part of the design, that Marvel and Netflixalways wanted us to make a show where audiences could dive into it without having seen any of the others. By the end of the trailer, the quartet's united against their enemies, with Luke Cage (Mike Colter) telling Danny Rand (Finn Jones) to light up that Iron Fist of his, Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) pummeling their foes, and Daredevil (Charlie Cox) encouraging the team to fight as a unit. But this trailer focuses more closely on their adversary Alexandra, played by Oscar nominee Sigourney Weaver. The final trailer that Netflix has released today will really help it get the word out to those who are unaware when it's going to be released.
If anyone can do it, it's this motley crew. It was an interesting announcement, of course, because (SPOILER ahead) the character had his neck broken and was killed in the first season's finale. Defenders has been a long time in the making, and it's hard to believe it's nearly here.
This leaves Luke and Jessica (who already have a pre-existing relationship as seen in the first season of Jessica Jones) dubious of the "ancient evil organization who are capable of destroying an entire civilization".
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, showrunner Marco Ramirez (Daredevil) discussed what inspirations the writers' room drew upon when crafting The Defenders, specifically explaining how the miniseries' tone owes more to classic cinema that either of Joss Whedon's Avengers films.
Finn: "The first four episodes, we're coming together".
The Harry Potter spinoff/prequel "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" (2016) sends British magic scholar Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) to 1920s NY and unleashes magical creatures into the human world (PG-13).
"But if you've been to NY, you immediately can tell". They've experienced it, and as hard as it is to explain, we know it exists because we've been there. The series is, and was only ever, meant for people who've been following the saga from the beginning - so why waste so much screen time on labourious, drawn-out scene setting?
"I can see you've formed a bond here", Alexandra says when she meets the team and tries to plant doubts about each other in their minds, "but I promise you, it's temporary".

Alexandra seems determined to divide the newly united superheroes.
