The Defenders Stand Together In New Poster

The Defenders is almost here. The series, which is just two weeks away, released a new poster on Friday, showing the whole team– Iron Fist (Finn Jones), Luke Cage (Mike Colter), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), and Daredevil (Charlie Cox)– standing together. You can view the poster at the bottom of this article.

The eight-episode series will feature the four heroes uniting to take down a common enemy, a combination of several entities which has apparently been lurking in each of the separate stories we've seen thus far. Sigourney Weaver takes on the role of the series' big bad Alexandra, with the actress calling her "one of the most interesting women characters" she has ever read.

Not everything will be smooth sailing for the newly minted foursome of heroes. Despite the tough task ahead, they won't all be able to just come together right off the bat, as they will be dealing with a lot of tension within the group. "It's very difficult when you all have such strong, passionate viewpoints, to kind of reconcile and make sure that everybody's on the same page," Colter previously said of the team. "It doesn't work that way, but we'll do the best we can."

The Defenders already has mostly positive reviews from critics, who got an early screening of the series' first four episodes. However, despite that, Marvel Television head Jeph Loeb says that the series may never got a second season, with the exec saying that they haven't put any concrete plans in motion for another team up just yet.

The Defenders, which also stars Jon Bernthal, Rosario Dawson, Simone Messick, Elodie Yung, Scott Glenn, Jessica Henwick, Rachael Taylor, Deborah Ann Woll, Carrie-Anne Moss, Elden Henson, and Eka Darville, will hit Netflix on Aug. 18. While we wait, get some clues on what to expect by reading up on the superhero team's untold truth.
