We know she can handle the ‘Queen Bitch’ as Ripley in the Alien movies, but it seems Sigourney Weaver seems to be a ‘sucker’ for fortune cookies. Ahead of tomorrow’s launch of Marvel‘s The Defenders, Netflix has released one final trailer. A trailer that focuses on Alexandra, but who is she really, a lot of mystery surrounds her. What we do know she is the central villain, so why does Hell’s Kitchen’s band of soldiers?
It’s slightly unusual to deliver a fresh new trailer focused around the show’s villain. Usually, it’s our protagonists who steal the limelight but Alexandra has a lot of secrets. With one day before the release of the series Netflix show off a lot of new footage. We are teased that she has a lot of power very menacing but also knows the power of our heroes is very strong. Can she get them onboard?
In Marvel’s Defenders, we follow Matt Murdock/Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Danny Rand/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.
Co-starring Sigourney Weaver (Alexandra), Elodie Yung (Elektra), Scott Glenn (Stick), Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), Carrie-Anne Moss (Jeri Hogarth), Rachael Taylor (Trish Walker), Eka Darville (Malcolm Ducasse), Simone Missick (Misty Knight) and Jessica Henwick (Colleen Wing).
Marvel’s Defenders will premiere exclusively globally on Netflix tomorrow, 18th August.
