6 things we want to see in Marvel's The Defenders

The constant influx of new material to digest meant there just wasn't enough time to build up the appetite for the main course.

Like Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and Hulk on the big screen, the four heroes enjoyed solo outings setting their characters and worlds up before bringing them together to tie up a larger story arc.

The show will see vigilantes Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist team up in New York City to fight a common enemy: The Hand. As the teaser ends, the camera pans out to reveal that he had been signing his work, hammering his iconic skull logo into the floor, presumably as a message to anyone who stands in his way.

Into their gritty New York City streets walks Alexandra (Sigourney Weaver) an elusive leader of The Hand, an underground criminal organization that made appearances in Daredevil and Iron Fist. It's the latter quality, I suspect, that marks her out as unnaturally abhorrent, more than her involvement with an ancient ninja terror network that dabbles in the occult.

Jones continues as Danny Rand, co-CEO of Rand Enterprises who, now a Buddhist monk and martial arts master, has the ability to call upon the mystical power of the Iron Fist as his alter ego.

The cast of Netflix Defenders argue over which one of them would come out on top. Yes, I would rather THE DEFENDERS had arrived earlier.

Bernthal spoke about taking on one of Marvel's most iconic characters in an interview with Complex previous year. It's a treat to watch.

Fans who have been following the Marvel shows on Netflix would already notice that they are all somehow connected to The Defenders.

He also becomes the "Iron Fist" and has expert Kung Fu skills along with a fist that glows gold and has an extremely energetic punch to go with it.

Those differences, coupled with a brooding tone that eerily matches each character, make The Defenders one of the best Marvel series yet.

Friday will bring with it a large-amount of binge watching, and superhero fans should be grateful we live in the age of direct-to-TV high-performance, high-production series such as this.

COX: "When you come to this having not had any real experience with these characters or these comics, you have to look at it from a slightly different angle: Maybe bringing fresh eyes to it will be beneficial". This resurrection leads Daredevil to wonder whether Elektra has lost her soul, and results in some cool Elektra vs. But now she has a protective group.

This episode is also a reminder of how badass Stick (Scott Glenn) is. The way I designed the makeup starts with a huge collaboration because we have all the chefs - we have Marvel, we have Netflix, we have the showrunner.

The series will air sometime later this year. The best part of The Defenders?

The Defenders Season 1 available August 18 on Netflix.
