Recently released through The Defenders Twitter page, this 14-second Defenders promo spotlights, and confirms the presence of, Netflix/Marvel series alumni Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll) and Misty Knight (Simone Missick). Yes, The Defenders takes four disparate narratives — the emotionally turbulent journeys of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist — and presents them with a foe (Sigourney Weaver) worthy of instigating, somewhat begrudgingly, a team-up. Anyway, let’s check out this all-to-brief Defenders video promo kicking off with the following mantra presented in beaten text: “The Strong Survive.”

After said beaten text, we’re presented with Karen Page, Simone Missick, and a closing call to arms in equally weathered text: “Those Who Surround Us, Define Us.”
I…I am officially pumped.
The Defenders debuts on Netflix in 2017, starring Charlie Cox as Daredevil, Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, Finn Jones as Iron Fist, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, Jon Bernthal as The Punisher, Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Simone Missick as the absolutely stunning in EVERY WAY Misty Knight, Scott Glenn as the returning, cantankerous Stick, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, and Sigourney Weaver as….the villain.
