Heroes Unite In The First Images From ‘Marvel’s The Defenders’

There are a lot of superhero movies to look forward to in 2017 all of which you can check here. But that’s not what this article is about (of course!). Apart from their cinematic universeMarvel found high success in their TV universe as well. Shows like Daredevil and Jessica Jones were a complete tonal shift from the regular MCU and allowed for mature and adult stories to be told. Last year, Luke Cage got his own show and the universe is ever expanding.

Coming back to 2017, Netflix has two new Marvel shows in the pipeline. First, we have Iron Fist starring Game of Thrones alumni Finn Jones as Danny Rand. Also coming later in the year is the superhero team-up show The Defenders which will feature all the New York heroes (except Spidey).

We have some images from the first two episodes including that of Sigourney Weaver as the big bad. Apart from the group photo, we have individual images of each character with their token Power Ranger colour scheme that dominates their show (Red for DD, Neon Purple for JJ and so on).

Check out all of these images below brought to you exclusively by EW:
