New Defenders Trailer


Netflix has debuted a new trailer for The Defenders, with less than a month before the release of the mini-series, and it gives us a ton of new footage, with a better look at Sigourney Weaver in her mysterious and villainous role, as well as banter between our heroes, both in and out of costume.

The new trailer is the best so far, and really sells the dynamic between all of them. I’m really hoping this works out, and the series format allows our heroes to find chemistry with each other in the best, most organic ways.

Posters for Marvel’s The Defenders & Punisher


Marvel Studios has unveiled two new posters that they’ll be giving out to attendees at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. The first, seen above, is a cool promotional poster for The Defenders featuring our 4 heroes in what amounts to their costumes at this point, stylized with a colorful New York back-drop.

The second, however, seen after the jump, gives us our first look at The Punisher logo, and the usual stylized artwork of Frank Castle holding a sniper rifle, bloodied and battered. It’s a cool poster, that falls in line with the usual initial style these posters are released as. Hopefully, we’ll see some sort of trailer or footage at SDCC!

New Defenders Image


Empire Online has debuted a new promotional image for The Defenders, the upcoming team-up series between the Netflix Marvel characters. A new full trailer is expected for the series, soon, as we have just over a month till it debuts and have yet to see too much, which truthfully does not bode well.

Check out the group shot above, and be sure to keep an eye out for more. The Defenders hit Netflix on August 18th.

New Additions to Luke Cage Season 2 Cast


Marvel Studios has announced two new additions to the cast of Luke Cage Season 2, and they’re both going to be somewhat familiar to comic fans. Mustafa Shakir (The Deuce, The Night Of) and Gabrielle Dennis (Insecure, Rosewood) have joined the cast as John Bushmaster, and Tilda Johnson, respectively.

John Bushmaster is a crime boss, and enemy of Cage who is described as “a natural leader, brimming with charisma, whose mission is focused on Harlem and vengeance.”  While Tilda Johnson, better known for her codename, Nightshade, is said to be “a brilliant, holistic doctor with a complicated history in Harlem where, as much as she tries to stay far from trouble, it seems to always find her.” Luke Cage Season 2 premieres in 2018.

New Marvel’s Defenders Motion Posters


There’s most likely a new Defenders trailer arriving soon, as the crossover-series is set to hit in less than 2 months. We just got a new motion poster for each member of the Defenders, as well as a new one-sheet for the series, as well.

The motion posters feature a few action shots of each character, as well as a line of dialogue, set to the sounds of Nirvana’s “Come As You Are.” Hit the jump to check out Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, and Iron Fist in motion, as well as a shot at the full poster.

Three Defenders Getting new Seasons in 2018


We knew that Jessica Jones was absolutely getting a second season next year, as that confirmation is already out there. We also know that Luke Cage was filming its second season later this year, implying a mid-to-late 2018 release, as well. However, Entertainment Weekly has also put out there that the 3rd season of Daredevil will be released next year, as well.

It makes sense that Netflix would start putting out a yearly 3 new seasons each year, as that’s the plan starting this year, with The Defenders on August 18th, and Punisher slated for a November release.

Netflix’s The Punisher Release Date Leaked


It’s been a busy year for Netflix’s Marvel series, and it’s only getting busier. The Defenders comes out later this year, August 18th to be exact, and it looks like The Punisher will be joining it come this November.

In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, director Dearbhla Walsh let slip the series general release date of November, while discussing her first television projects outside of the U.K.

I’ve directed one other time that hasn’t been aired yet, which was an episode for the new Marvel series The Punisher, which I did just before Christmas, but it’s not airing until November. I directed that in New York and edited in L.A., but this was my first directing experience in lovely Canada.
