It’s San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) weekend and you know what that means – prepare for an influx of Marvel/DC Comics news!
In fact, Marvel just unveiled some surprises for its Netflix panel at this year’s convention, showcasing a teaser for its “The Defenders” series.
Douglas Petrie (Marvel’s Daredevil, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Marco Ramirez (Marvel’s Daredevil, Orange Is the New Black) will serve as showrunners for “The Defenders”. Set to air next year, the event series will feature an epic superhero team-up of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist (think “Avengers-esque” crossover) facing a mystical evil that threatens to swallow New York City whole.
You think the 4 of you can save New York? You can’t even save yourselves.
Granted, the teaser trailer doesn’t actually tell us anything because it doesn’t even contain actual footage from the series. It does, however, feature a mysterious voice in the background followed by Nirvana’s “Come As You Are”.
We’re sure more details will be unveiled in the coming months so keep checking back with us for more updates!
“The Defenders” is scheduled to air on Netflix in 2017.
