Marvel's Defenders Look Pretty Exhausted in This First Teaser
Or maybe they just don't want to be seen with Iron Fist.

With all four of their solo shows now available to watch on Netflix, Marvel's Defenders are together on screen at last—and having about as much fun as you'd expect.
A newly released teaser for the upcoming team-up series shows our heroes—Charlie Cox's Daredevil/Matt Murdock, Krysten Ritter's Jessica Jones, Mike Colter's Luke Cage, and Finn Jones's Iron Fist/Danny Rand—standing in an elevator looking exhausted. Once Jessica notices that they're under surveillance in "Midland Circle Security Elevator B," she cuts the camera, either for stealth reasons or just because she doesn't want to be seen with Jones's less-than-beloved Danny Rand.
The timecode in the upper right corner of the video keeps ticking until the feed cuts, ending at 8:18:20:17. Since August 18 just happens to be a Friday this year—aka the day of the week on which Netflix always releases its new originals—this feels like a covert release date announcement. Marvel's The Defenders: probably coming to Netflix on August 18, 2017.
