Just yesterday, Marvel seemed to hint at a need for Defenders against a resurrected threat, and now we know why. The war for New York is officially on, as Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist unite in the first full Defenders trailer!

Well ahead of its August premiere, the new trailer brings quite a few updates to the Marvel-Netflix universe. Not only do we have our first look at Matt Murdock and Jessica Jones’ very comic-accurate meeting, but Luke Cage is also headed back to Harlem (for some coffee, nudge-nudge), and making friends with Iron Fist.

Now set for an August 18 premiere, Marvel’s eight-episode Netflix Defenders will feature among the returning cast Elodie Yung, Jessica Henwick, Scott Glenn, Rosario Dawson, Rachael Taylor, Simone Missick, Deborah Ann Woll, Carrie-Anne Moss, Elden Henson and Eka Darville. Sigourney Weaver will portray the villainous “Alexandra,” while the team-up series will be helmed by Daredevil showrunner Marco Ramirez, and directed in part by Jessica Jones director S.J. Clarkson.

We’ll have more looks at The Defenders soon, so stay tuned.
