Coming courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, here’s the first official images from the Netflix’s forthcoming The Defenders – Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter), and Iron Fist (Finn Jones). And that’s even BEFORE the latest Netflix/Marvel show, Iron Fist, has actually streamed on the service!
The images include Luke Cage behind bars following the events of his solo series and a handcuffed Jessica is being questioned by Misty Knight (yes, Misty Knight!); but the big surprise – at least in terms of publicity – is our first good look at Sigourney Weaver as The Defenders nemesis, and villain of the piece, Alexandra – who showrunner Marco Ramirez described thus:
Sigourney is the kind of person you can buy as the smartest person in the room, who you can also buy as a person holding a flamethrower. Her character is a very powerful force in New York City. She’s everything Sigourney is: sophisticated, intellectual, dangerous… I’m sorry. I can only say a bunch of adjectives right now.
