First Trailer For 'The Defenders' Has Them Still Fighting Ninja

So what do the citizens of the Marvel Universe do when faced with a super foe too tough for the police? Calling The Avengers is out of the question; they're too busy fighting one another or blowing up entire countries. They'd never handle something so small-time. No, you call on The Defenders, and Netflix has released the first trailer for their latest Marvel series.

Charlie Cox is back as Daredevil, with Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, and some guy Finn Jones as Iron Fist, and...hey, Elektra (Elodie Yung) is back. Looks like she's brought a whole gaggle of evil Hand ninja with her, too, all ready to be punched in a cramped, darkened hallway.  Sigourney Weaver is the villain and hopefully she won't be so easily dispatched.

The Defenders kicks off on August 18th and runs for only 8-episodes, thank goodness. Spare us the filler.
