Marvel's The Punisher: Watch The Intense First Trailer

The drama will see all four of Netflix' Marvel series superheroes-Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist-team up to save New York City.

Netflix and Marvel made a decision to uses the last 30 seconds of screen time from this series to tease the next Marvel-Netflix show, Marvel's The Punisher.

If you're not familiar with them, then watching their stories get pieced together in "The Defenders" can be a bit of a slog. The Defenders is a crossover series that acts as a single culmination to all four previous major Netflix/Marvel collabs, so a second season would require a whole new set of storylines to intertwine.

We join our heroes as they contemplate the fall-out of their establishing shows.

Those differences, coupled with a brooding tone that eerily matches each character, make The Defenders one of the best Marvel series yet.

Matt Murdock has given up his stint as the Devil of Hell's Kitchen after Elektra's death in Season 2 of Daredevil. If the first few episodes of the Defenders we had left on our hunger, our advice is to kick the unanimous Sigourney Weaver in the skin of the big bad. I don't think my character even actually said anything to her character. The main characters bounce off each other beautifully, radiating a chemistry that would have been hard to develop for the limited screentime, but which still works out.

Misty Knight's (Simone Missick) interview with Jessica gets interrupted. "Jessica Jones" is a psychological thriller.

Although their bromance starts off rocky, they begin to let their guard down and not pulverise each other, and become an on-screen duo fuelled by geeky comic-book chi. Or maybe it's just Iron First, who has a problem with everybody since there's a moment where he punches Daredevil in the face and a quick shot where Luke Cage appears to be throwing a jab his way. Also featured will be detective Jessica Jones. The jury's still out as to who Alexandra Reid might "really" be in terms of comicsverse-back in January, Den of Geek speculated that perhaps she could be Mephisto or The Beast of the Hand-and of course, it's possible that she could be a brand-new character who just scared the hell out of me.

Check out THE DEFENDERS on Netflix when it premieres August 18th. Just as they might get their hands on one of them, a mysterious figure stops them. If you don't know that Luke and Jessica used to date, The Defenders isn't written to fill you in.

The new series clearly took notes from the successes and failures of the standalone series, especially the bumbling Iron Fist and the boring filler scenes that came with giving 13 episodes to the other four shows.
