The Defenders will set up Phase 2 of Marvel's Netflix shows

Heck, if Game of Thrones can cover dozens of characters across Westeros in seven episodes this season, there's no reason why The Defenders should have to be any longer. To which Luke Cage counters with "For all your talk of life, you sure bring a lot of death".

"The more connections you have, the easier it will be to break you", she tells them in voiceover as we get a glimpse of numerous Netflix Marvelverse's supporting players, including Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick) and Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll).

Watch the final trailer above.

The Defenders hits Netflix tomorrow. In the Defenders we team up, and the shooting of that is immensely complicated.

Tomorrow brings the assembly of Marvel superheroes known as The Defenders to Netflix, marking the first time Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Iron Fist (Finn Jones) have teamed up to take on a threat.

As with all of this stuff, we'll have to wait and see. On average, these Marvel/Netflix seasons arrive around 54 days after the first footage is released, so going by that, we might see Punisher in mid-October or, maybe more likely considering Netflix has a packed October schedule, November. Mike Colter also has an incredible resume. But someone from another Marvel show (hint: he's on "Daredevil") is there to meet him upon release.

The Hand's full lineup is shadowy, so for purposes of this show we focus on one main spokesperson: Alexandra, intriguingly played by Sigourney Weaver. Although that character remains the most disappointing thing about this comic book collaboration.

Nelson and Murdock, Attorneys at Law reunion!In "The Defenders", many of your favorite supporting characters from the individual shows will return.

We're not entirely certain how numerous characters that we're already familiar with will join antihero Frank Castle in his very own run, but one that has definitely been confirmed is Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll) who has served as a love interest for both Matt Murdock and Frank in the past.

That they all come together, over the space of three plodding episodes, to take on a common enemy who is somehow not Iron Fist may confuse newcomers, but Marvel has never been especially good at drawing persuasive villains. In this case, The Hand is laying plans to wipe out New York City, the same way that in past centuries it wiped out, say, Pompeii. Luke Cage was the Thor, enjoyable with its unique vibe, although not as engrossing from beginning to end as the other blockbusters.

The biggest question going into this street-level hero team-up was how four shows with such different vibes would come together as one. That will likely be on the way in the next couple of weeks, and that's because we are still expecting to see The Punisher on Netflix some time before the end of the year.

It's Morning Radio Personality Trish Walker! That said, the best part of the series is without a doubt Krysten Ritter's Jessica Jones, who has zero fucks to give and is ultimately just trying to live.
