The Defenders come together in the first official trailer for Marvel’s biggest series

The time has come to unite

The first full trailer for Netflix and Marvel’s The Defenders has arrived just months ahead of the show’s premiere.

The trailer, which can be seen above, comes just one day after Netflix teased the return of a favorite character from Daredevil’s second season on Twitter yesterday. The new trailer confirms that Elektra is making her return to the series and, perhaps more importantly, gives us our first look at the entire team in action.

The Defenders will see Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage come together to try and take down a dangerous, underground assassin collective called The Hand. Although they’ll have to learn to trust each other and work with one another — think The Avengers — the trailer does end with the four superheroes taking on a number of baddies in a hallway, working together as one collective unit.

The Defenders will debut on Netflix on Aug. 18.
