The Defenders just got a brand new trailer and boy are they ready to rumble. Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Daredevil and the Iron Fist team up to defeat a rising threat in New York. While these misfits are going through their own problems, they may work better together as a team.

In this trailer we get to see a bit more of our villains. Elektra is back from the “dead” and under the control of the mysterious Alexandra, played by Sigourney Weaver. Together they have a plan to bring down New York. How exactly is unsure. But we know it involved bombs and going after the people that the heroes love and care about the most.

The banter that all the characters have together will really make this mini-series work. Like the Avengers before them, having clashing personalities brings out the laughs, fun and heroism. Especially when it comes to Jessica Jones and her snarkiness. It doesn’t hurt that the choreography looks great, too!

So what do you think of the trailer? Check it out below and let us know what you think. Be sure to come back to Geek Girl Authority for more The Defenders and SDCC news!
