Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we have aa look at the coming Netflix series The Defenders. The series bring together the heroes of Hell’s Kitchen – Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist.
Marvel Television and Netflix have also given us our first look Sigourney Weaver’s character. She will be playing the role of the antagonist Alexandra. Not much is known about the character. Weaver said of her work on series:
“I am doing The Defenders, which is a lot of fun. It has a wonderful cast, and we’re doing it right here in New York, which means a lot to me. Basically the four heroes come up against this really nice woman, who I’m playing. It’s been a blast and I really love my character. I love the shows, too, which I wasn’t familiar with before doing this. A real love letter to New York. To me they’re not superheroes; they’re people with a gift. It’s just a different scale, and I’m really enjoying the scale of it. The apocalyptic thing is a little harder for me to understand.”
