The Defenders assemble

Netflix’s Iron Fist may have landed to lackluster reviews, but the streaming service is already looking toward its next big superhero show with a new teaser video for Marvel’s The Defenders, according to our friends at Polygon. The drama will have Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Danny Rand — each of whom have standalone Netflix shows — band together to battle an unknown foe played by Sigourney Weaver.

The brief clips see the four Defenders together in an elevator (Daredevil looking particularly fetching in a business suit / burlap sack combo), before Krysten Ritter’s Jessica Jones notices the camera and punches it into oblivion. As a preview of the show, it’s thin; as a chance to see the heroes together, it does its job.

Netflix also confirmed that the show will be out on August 18th, through a New York Bulletin newspaper website that is hidden in the IP address in the corner of the video.
