Defenders trailer

It’s finally here, the first full trailer for The Defenders! I’m incredibly exited to see the whole gang team up and kick ass.

For the rest I’m not quite sure how to feel about the Hand storyline (mainly because an ancient destructive power seems like a lot to handle for these people), but having two cool female villains is definitely nice and it’s just going to be awesome to see everyone together. Bring on August!
