Entertainment Weekly has exclusively revealed the first look at the upcoming Marvel/Netflix team-up series The Defenders!
A show that’s 64 episodes in the making (counting 2 seasons of Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage – potentially Iron Fist) it’s finally almost here.
EW writes (in addition to a new video and picture below):
Each Defender has arrived separately at the offices of Midland Circle (a name that should sound familiar to Daredevil fans as the shady operation behind a giant, literal plot hole in season 2), and none of them expected to cross paths. But before they can properly meet and greet, the four have wound up trapped in the middle of a corridor and must brawl their way past a group of enemies. (Hey, Marvel loves hallway fight scenes ever since Daredevil pulled one off.) “Every one of them is following their own trail of bread crumbs, trying to unpack a mystery in New York,” explains showrunner Marco Ramirez, who produced Daredevil‘s first season before co-showrunning the second. “We wanted them all caught off guard. Once they’re in that room together, it’s kind of like, ‘Oh, s—, who are you?’”
They also revealed new details about Sigourney Weaver’s mystery character:
“Sigourney is the kind of person you can buy as the smartest person in the room, who you can also buy as a person holding a flamethrower. Her character is a very powerful force in New York City. She’s everything Sigourney is: sophisticated, intellectual, dangerous.” He pauses. “I’m sorry. I can only say a bunch of adjectives right now.”

Outside of that – we now know her name is Alexandra.
