The American TV series Marvel’s The Defenders is finally set to arrive on Netflix this August 18, for its sought-after premiere.
Marvel’s The Defenders follows Matt Murdock/Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter), and Danny Rand/Iron Fist (Finn Jones), a quartet of singular heroes with one common goal – to save New York City. This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realize they just might be stronger when teamed together.
The online streaming site is also kicking off #Defend week with the show’s new featurette that takes us behind the scenes.
“One of the greatest things about being part of this Marvel Netflix team has been really understanding the fandom behind these characters,” says Charlie Cox, who plays Matt Murdock/Daredevil in the superhero’s stand-alone TV series.
“They’ve been beloved for decades and the way that these characters are portrayed is immensely important to a huge number of people. Knowing that, and seeing these characters come together in the same room, develop relationships and witnessing their diverse personalities within this group is something that I know will mean a lot to fans.”
The much-awaited series also stars Academy-Award nominated actress Sigourney Weaver (Alexandra), Elodie Yung (Elektra), Scott Glenn (Stick), Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), Carrie-Anne Moss (Jeri Hogarth), Rachael Taylor (Trish Walker), Eka Darville (Malcolm Ducasse), Simone Missick (Misty Knight) and Jessica Henwick (Colleen Wing).
Marvel’s The Defenders is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix. The eight-episode series premieres globally on Netflix on August 18, Friday, at 3:01pm (Manila time).
