The new Defenders trailer dropped today! And I think it looks fantastic!  All of our favorite heroes are back in action to face new threats in NYC.  Sigourney Weaver plays the villain, Alexandra, presumably the big bad of the show.  I was wondering if she would be playing down her evilness, revealing her master plan during the second half of the show but it looks like she is evil from the jump.  That’s ok with me.  Looks like Misty Knight, Claire Temple and Colleen Wing also join the fray as well.

Can we talk for a second on how awesome Simone Missick is as Misty?  I am in love with her voice.  Her tone is commanding, with a little bit of “what the fuck is wrong with you” inflection thrown in for good measure.  Perfect casting of the Daughter of the Dragon.

Speaking of Daughters of the Dragon, do you guys and gals think we might see a spin off show with the same name featuring Misty and Colleen?

The limited series stars Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock / Daredevil, Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, and Finn Jones as Danny Rand / Iron Fist, all reprising their roles from their individual series. Élodie Yung also stars as Elektra Natchios, reprising the role from Marvel’s Daredevil. Development of the miniseries began in late 2013, with Cox the first actor cast in May 2014, and Jones the final of the title four cast in February 2016. Petrie and Ramirez joined as showrunners in April, after serving in the same role on the second season of Daredevil. However, Petrie left as showrunner at the start of filming in New York City in October 2016; filming concluded in March 2017.

The Defenders will consist of eight episodes, and is scheduled to be released August 18, 2017.

The Verge reported that Jeph Joeb, executive vice president of Marvel Television announced the gang before bringing out yet another surprise in the form of a villain.

“We’ve not told you who the villain of the Defenders is,” Loeb said in a video uploaded by Netflix, which elicited boos from the crowd. “And the reason is for that,” Loeb continued, “is because we needed to find somebody that could take on all these guys. She doesn’t require any introduction anywhere she goes in the world. She’ll be joining The Defenders cast. Ladies and gentlemen, it is my distinct pleasure to introduce Miss Sigourney Weaver.”

Weaver came out onstage and hugged her future cast-mates as the audience went wild.

Fans have been waiting for a long time to see who will be the antagonist in the new series, which brings together stars from some of television’s most popular superhero shows. There is no set release date for The Defenders, though we know it will be sometime in 2017. It is rumored that it will be an eight-episode miniseries.

Marvel’s Iron Fist is set to premiere next year on Friday, March 17, with a 13-episode first season. It will be joining the collection of Marvel shows that are already streaming:DaredevilJessica Jones, and the new smash hit Luke Cage.

The Punisher, another solo series from Marvel, has commenced filming in New York City but does not yet have a premiere date. Jon Bernthal stars as the titular character.

The cast is as follows:

A billionaire Buddhist monk and martial arts expert, proficient in kung-fu with the ability to call upon the power of the Iron Fist. On being cast as the character, Jones said he was drawn to the character and his background, saying, “I really enjoy how he’s a superhero with a real heart but has spiritual elements as well. I think it’s going to be an exciting character to play because there’s this contraction of on one hand he’s from a very wealthy family, he’s a billionaire, on the other hand he’s been in this world of K’un-Lun for a long time where he’s learned kung fu and buddhist philosophy. There’s a contradiction in those elements that’s going to be really fun to play.” In preparation for the role, Jones studied kung fu, wushu and tai chi, along with weight training, Buddhist philosophy and meditation.
  • Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing: An ally of Rand, who runs her own martial arts dojo in New York City.
  • David Wenham as Harold Meachum: A ruthless corporate leader who was partners with Rand’s parents at the time of their deaths.
  • Jessica Stroup as Joy Meachum: The daughter of Harold and childhood acquaintance of Rand’s, whose work building up Rand Enterprises with her brother Ward is threatened to be undone with Rand’s return.
  • Tom Pelphrey as Ward Meachum: The son of Harold and childhood acquaintance of Rand’s, whose work building up Rand Enterprises with his sister Joy is threatened to be undone with Rand’s return.
  • Carrie-Anne Moss as Jeri Hogarth: An attorney who helps Rand once he returns to New York. Moss reprises her role from previous role in Marvel/Netflix’s Jessica Jones.

After a film based on the character spent over a decade in development at Marvel Studios, development for the series began in late 2013 at Marvel Television, with Buck hired as the series show runner in December 2015 and Jones cast as Rand in February 2016. Filming began in New York City in April 2016.

Iron Fist is scheduled to be released on March 17, 2017

Mark your calendars accordingly.
