Netflix is finally bringing its Marvel heroes together. The streaming service’s latest MCU show, The Defenders, begins playing today. It brings together Matt Murdock, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Danny Rand, and their companions to help save New York City.
With its Netflix shows, Marvel opted to follow the same formula as its big-budget films: introduce each character in their own story, tease a greater threat, and then bring them together. Where Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor led to The Avengers, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist all come to The Defenders.
Here’s all of the trailers, updates, and commentary for the Netflix team-up series, which begins streaming on August 18th on Netflix.
