Netflix’s superhero sagas are all coming together this year for the first season of “The Defenders.”
In a new super short sneak peek at the series, the four Defenders can be seen taking an awkward elevator ride together. Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox), Danny Rand (Finn Jones) and Luke Cage (Mike Colter) all seem content to lounge around, but Jessica Jones finds the camera recording their ride and predictably punches it out.
Not much to go on there, but we do have a few clues to dissect.
The camera feed says “Midland Circle Security,” which is illuminating in and of itself. Remember that huge hole in the ground Matt found in Season 2 of “Daredevil?” The one The Hand had dug in the middle of New York City for some reason? That construction site had the Midland Circle brand on it, meaning the Defenders are likely setting up to go hand to hand (sorry, we had to) with these guys in Season 1.
We also can’t help but notice that Matt isn’t wearing his snazzy Daredevil suit. He’s wearing the “Daredevil” Season 1 rag over his face with a rumpled suit — a.k.a his everyday look.
Did the other Defenders just grab him outside the courthouse to go Hand hunting? Does that mean they already know his secret identity? Whatever the case, we seriously cannot wait for this show to drop on Netflix to answer all our burning questions.
“The Defenders” premieres August 18, 2017 at 3 a.m. ET/12 a.m. PT on Netflix.
