Watch the trailer for Marvel's The Defenders


We also get our first glimpse at Sigourney Weaver's as-yet unidentified villain, who definitely knows her way around a striking outfit.

Instead, we see Matt Murdock/Daredevil (Charlie Cox) in his civilian guise as he bursts into an interrogation room where Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) is being interrogated by Misty Knight (Simone Missick).

The series is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.

And the last superhero Finn Jones as Iron Fist. It has confirmed that Elektra is going to be returning to the series.

Netflix releases its first episode of "The Defenders" in August. This is the story of four solitary figures - Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Daredevil, and Iron Fist, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realise they might be stronger as a team. In the trailer, you can see how dysfunctional of a team they start out to be when they first meet. Also, Netflix's Marvel series are all about well-coordinated fight sequences, specifically those claustrophobic, "Old Boy" hallway skirmishes.
