“There’s no ‘us’ in team,” goes the latest tagline.
The four street level heroes of the Marvel Netflix series reluctantly come together to defend in a new poster and images for the series.
The disparate personalities — Charlie Cox’s blind lawyer/vigilante Matt Murdock/Daredevil, Krysten Ritter’s private eye Jessica Jones, Mike Colter’s ex-convict/community hero Luke Cage, and Finn Jones’ corporate scion/mystic warrior Danny Rand/Iron Fist — are brought together to protect and defend their beloved New York City from evil forces lead by enigmatic executive Alexandra (Sigourney Weaver), as well as — or in conjunction with — the mysterious ninja clan The Hand.
From all accounts, it sounds like they want very little to do with each other, but fate and misfortune have brought them together. Scott Glenn’s Stick, a member of a group known as the Chaste sworn to fight the Hand much like Danny Rand’s warrior monks from K’un Lun, will impress upon the four that they are stronger together than apart. With things like Elektra (Elodie Yung) resurrected as the deadly Black Sky weapon, they’ll need all the help they can get.
In addition to the stoic-faced poster, some motion posters dropped on Twitter highlighting each member of the team. You can see them below.
Before you can avenge, you must defend.
