We’re just hours away from what may well be the biggest event in Netflix history!  (That’s not an exaggeration.  When ‘Luke Cage’ premiered the service crashed from so many people streaming it!)  Finally, Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Iron Fist (Finn Jones), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritten) and Luke Cage (Mike Colter) are about to reluctantly join forces as ‘The Defenders’ to stand up against Sigourney Weaver’s mysterious Alexandra.

And although there is less than a day until this event series becomes available to stream, Netflix has unleashed a new trailer that is actually packed with never-before-seen footage.  We get a glimpse of Elektra‘s resurrection and a sinister tête-à-tête between Alexandra (last name Blont?) plus a clue as to how she plans to keep The Defenders off her trail… by targeting everyone and everything they love.  “The more connections you have,” she coldly states, “The easier it will be to break you.”  She also adds, “New York is so densely populated.”  She implies that she’s seen many cities fall, meaning she may, in fact, be the ancient force known as The Beast which has led The Hand for centuries.

Watch the video for yourself below:

When ‘The Defenders’ launches, Matt Murdock has retired his Daredevil identity and Luke Cage is back in prison.  Romantically, he is involved with Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson), but his relationship with Jessica Jones will be further explored on this show.  And ‘The Defenders’ spins directly out of the events of ‘Iron Fist’.

But considering the animosity these protagonists have for each other, can they really function as a team?  And at the end will they remain one or go their separate ways?

Well, the clock is ticking and we’ll know the answers to these and any other questions in just a bit!
