If you’ve been keeping up with the Netflix Original Series based on the Marvel “street-level” superheroes such as Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist, you already know that they were heading in the direction of a combined team-up show called “The Defenders” and now that “Iron Fist” has been binged watched by all the fans, the time has come to prepare for this union and the first official trailer was released only a few short hours ago. Check it out.

The Premise: Set a few months after the events of the second season of Daredevil, and a month after the events of Iron Fist, the vigilantes Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist team up in New York City to fight a common enemy in The Hand. (thanks Wiki).

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Since I’ve really enjoyed all of the Netflix offerings to date I have to say that I am looking forward to this teaming up of all four of them. Now this is even with my initial hesitation about their using the name “The Defenders” since I grew up on the team that consisted of Dr. Strange, The Incredible Hulk, Silver Surfer and The Sub-Mariner. Oddly enough two of those heroes are not even in the Marvel Cinematic Universe of properties but I think I might have preferred their going with “Heroes For Hire” more than anything else. Based on this trailer, the mini-series seems to have everyone that was a side character in it as well which is awesome. “The Defenders” will consist of eight total episodes and will be available for streaming in full on August 18, 2017. Let me know what you think of the trailer down in the comments below and you can learn more about the show’s cast and characters via the official Wikipedia entry.
