Sigourney Weaver threatens Marvel heroes in final 'Defenders' trailer

Claire is a huge glue stick that brings the four Defenders together.

The truth is it's all old faces!

There's also the Punisher, who debuted in season 2 of Daredevil. Krysten Ritter is back as Jessica Jones.

"Everybody's so used to working on their own, they all feel that their way is the best way", said Mike Colter, who plays Cage, at a roundtable with journalists in NY. Those are the Defenders!

"Marvel's The Defenders" follows Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. They're the ones that have to bring the other two up-to-date and explain how serious this situation is and how you can't just walk away from it and how unsafe these people are and what they're capable of, blah blah blah.

There are spoilers below!

All eight episodes of The Defenders will premiere exclusively on Netflix on August 18, 2017. "Defenders" has also audaciously mirrored the company's original feature strategy, introducing a number of characters (beginning with "Iron Man") that were created to build toward - and heighten anticipation for - a promised team-up.

In the series, we will see Cox's Daredevil is still not over his former girlfriend (now dead) Elektra. To be fair though, one shouldn't put Jessica on a team full of superpowered vigilantes and expect her to keep quiet. Here, we see Foggy (Elden Henson) and Karen (Deborah Ann Woll), Matt's estranged BFFs, looking equal parts confused, annoyed and ready to take legal action.

And while we've known that this moment was going to arrive, the evil force that will bring our heroes together still remains a mystery. That doesn't sound easy, especially considering she still has post traumatic stress from her life with Kilgrave.

Also, on being asked if Jessica Jones and Luke Cage will be romantically involved in the series as they are in the comics, Mike Colter told, "There's always a journey". The show actually does him a favor by pairing him with Cage, who gives the poor little rich kid a speech about privilege that the screenwriters probably cribbed from a criticism of Iron Fist on Reddit.

According to Jones, he's the one who knows "how serious the situation is and how they need to get s-t done!" We're pleased to see there's another corridor fight too - something of a staple of the Netflix Marvel series now, though here not quite as blistering as the ones in Daredevil.
