The Defenders Sigourney Weaver

San Diego Comic-Con is usually jam packed with epic news from the Marvel Cinematic Universe and this year was no different. With mind-blowing announcements from ‘Captain Marvel’, ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’, and ‘Thor: Ragnarok’, there’s certainly some amazing things on the horizons from the House of Ideas. But all the epicness isn’t just relegated to the big screen as Netflix’s corner of the MCU has a few things up their sleeves. For instance, they debuted a brand new trailer for the highly anticipated crossover series ‘The Defenders’. However, because that certainly wasn’t enough, the series released a special clip featuring a few of the foes going up against the blind ninja, smart-ass detective, bulletproof ex-con, and Kung Fu billionaire.

As we saw in the various shows prior to the upcoming limited series, Wai Ching Ho’s Madame Gao runs her organization with an iron fist. She is feared and respected among her criminal circles. Although in the new clip from Marvel’s street-level team-up event, Gao and her associates bend the knee to Sigourney Weaver’s mysterious Alexandra. What sort of arrangement do they have together? And what sort of business are they conducting? We don’t have the answers just yet, but you can check out the sneak peek at the show below courtesy of their official Twitter account:

What do you think about the latest clip from ‘The Defenders’? What do you think Madame Gao is up to? And who or what do you think is up with Alexandra that she can command the underbelly of New York City like she does? Share your thoughts and theories in the comments.

‘The Defenders’ starring Charlie Cox, Krysten Ritter, Mike Colter, Finn Jones, Jessica Henwick, Deborah Ann Woll, Elodie Yung, Rosario Dawson, Simone Missick, Rachael Taylor, Eka Darville, Elden Henson, Wai Ching Ho, Scott Glenn, and Sigourney Weaver premieres on Netflix on August 18, 2017.
