Marvel/Netflix's The Defenders arrives in... [checks notes] holy shit, thirteen hours?! Is anyone still paying attention to these? Certainly no one at BMD, and superheroes are usually our thing. Ah well, here's the final trailer I guess:
Curious choice to use "This Summer" when the trailer was put up today, but I guess it's technically correct. To be clear, I don't think this looks like a bad show – in fact it seems like they're having a bit of fun with it, mostly at Danny Rand's expense – but I just can't bring myself to be excited for another one of these. It's going to have to be really good to get me invested.
Sigourney Weaver looks like she's checking every single box on the list of villain cliches (also not a complaint) and more Jessica Jones is always a good thing, so I've got my fingers crossed for this one. Maybe it'll be more of the same. Maybe it'll be better. Five fewer episodes than all the other series is a good place to start.
The Defenders hits Netflix tomorrow. No, really, tomorrow!
