"Marvel's The Defenders" follows Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. A quartet of singular heroes with one common goal - to save New York City. This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realize they just might be stronger when teamed together.
Sigourney Weaver was earlier going play a comic book supervillain; when Director Bryan Singer was involved in the early stages of X-Men: The Last Stand (2006), he had written the role of the main antagonist, Emma Frost, with Weaver in mind. Weaver's character Alexandra has a penchant for wearing all white, very similarly to Emma Frost. See more »

The only good things about this show was the last few dialogues/scene between daredevil and Electra and stick. Guys it is bad: I kid you not. I loved DD 1 and 2, Jessica Jones and even half of Luke cage. Who ever made the horrible iron fist probably made this too and made it worse at that. Guys there is no further character development. No new villains. A repetition of most of what we've seen in iron-fist/DD with respect to 'The Hand'. Weaver added nothing but her credentials to this show. The class of kingpin , the fight scene cinematography DD is so famous for was no where. It seemed like all the heroes had to have a dialogue even when it was completely unnecessary. All the supporting cast especially Claire did not need to be in more than one episode but they squeezed them in with a few lines every episode which made the show even more stupid. The supporting cast even kept repeating their same insanely stupid lines.The awesome Electra/daredevil chemistry that drove season 2 was publicly molested throughout this excuse for a show as the makers clearly knew that was all they could bank on. Do not make season 2 or at least change the director and kill off Danny rand. I'd rather see sequels Of daredevil, JJ and Luke cage then this pile of .....Avoid it guys or just watch the last episode: I promise that will be enough.
