Netflix

What do you get when you put together a blind ninja, an incredibly intelligent detective, a bulletproof former criminal and a Kung Fu expert who just so happens to be a billionaire? 'Marvel's The Defenders'; the show which brings outsider heroes Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist into a crime-fighting team like no other for the first time in television history. Launching globally next month on Netflix, the series is one of the most highly-anticipated of the year so far and, with a second full-length trailer dropping for the show at San Diego Comic Con, fans can now see all of the drama below:

The almost three-minute video is an action-packed one and, as the trailer progresses, we hear Sigourney Weaver's character Alexandra tease "the war in New York", whilst a montage of clips see the Defenders face off against all sorts of adversaries. Weaver's character is one that will prove challenging for the Marvel team to take down; as she mentions, she actually sees a lot of similarities in herself and those who oppose her. The only difference in fact is that Alexandra is merely bothered with self-preservation, while the Defenders take into account the lives of those living in New York.
