After releasing a cryptic teaser last month, Netflix has finally released the first full trailer for its upcoming Marvel series, The Defenders.

The Defenders follows Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist as they unite together to save New York City.

In the above trailer, we get glimpses of who the team are up against — the Hand, a resurrected Elektra and Alexandra, a new villain played by Sigourney Weaver. We also get a little backstory into how each of the four meet, as well as seeing them kick some serious ass together for the first time.

The Netflix original series will launch globally on August 18 — watch the trailer above.

After you’ve finished, meet the Israeli sneakerheads killing it on Instagram.
