VIDEO: Luke Cage Takes an Iron Fist to the Face in First Official 'Defenders' Trailer

Marvel's superhero team-up series hits Netflix Aug. 18

Four of New York's finest superheroes are finally joining forces.

On Wednesday, Netflix dropped the first official trailer for "Marvel's The Defenders," a follow-up to its four comics-inspired standalone series about crime-fighting New Yorkers with special powers. Set to a slowed-down version of Nirvana's "Come As You Are," the trailer gives fans a first glimpse at Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter), and Iron Fist (Finn Jones) as they come together for the greater good.

The nearly two-and-a-half-minute trailer includes several eye-popping moments, from Danny Rand punching Luke Cage in the jaw with his Iron Fist to a tightly-choreographed hallway fight sequence (below) to the debut of apparent "Defenders" antagonist Alexandra, played by Sigourney Weaver.
