Behold, The Explosive First Trailer For Marvel’s THE DEFENDERS

Your favorite heroes, together at last, in an elevator.

The first teaser trailer for Marvel's The Defenders has arrived, and it's ... well, it's just Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and a very silly-looking Daredevil riding in an elevator. It's not really explosive at all, if we're being honest. Also, it's over in sixteen seconds.

But still, we are here to give the people what they want, and people want The Defenders! Have at 'em!

Alright. So, when's it coming out? Entertainment Weekly may have that figured out for us:

In a brief teaser video, released on YouTube, security camera footage shows the superhuman quartet riding an elevator in Midland Circle, the mysterious corporation at the center of that literal hole in Daredevil season 2. Krysten Ritter’s Jessica Jones spies the security camera and smashes it exactly at the 08:18:20:17 mark.

At the bottom is a message that reads, “Watch Marvel’s The Defenders All Episodes Streaming Only on Netflix August 18.” 

Alright, so there you have it: The Defenders will land on Netflix on August 18th, just in time for you to finish your grueling, Bataan death march through the first season of Iron Fist. Are you guys looking forward to this one or what?
