Earlier this month, we were given new details about Sigourney Weaver’s character on The Defenders – as well as some new images.
Not much was really said about the character she’d be playing, besides the following:
“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.”
Well, some new set photos have now surfaced, which I’m sure will only lead to more speculation:

Pretty interesting stuff. Plenty of interesting set photos have started to make their way on to the internet, but not much is really known about the upcoming series. Per that same EW report we referenced above – this is what we know:
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?’”
Obviously, we will find out more in the coming months as it’s going to be a huge year for Marvel TV – and Marvel in general.
