Sigourney Weaver‘s villain in the Defenders Netflix series has remained something of a mystery, with no official details released. However, Sigourney Weaver was recently interviewed by Variety regarding her role in the upcoming film A Monster Calls, as well as her legacy in the Aliens franchise. At the conclusion of the short interview, Variety attempted to ask her about her Defenders character. Weaver remained tight-lipped about her role, but did offer a hint:
” I can’t say much, because they might kill me. I think everyone I work for might kill me if I tell you anything. But I have the most delicious character. She’s really smart, and she’s very in charge”
While there’s nothing substantially informative from those words, Sigourney Weaver‘s comments do hint at a villain that is once again in charge of a large group or organization, similar to the Kingpin or Diamondback or in this case, The Hand. While The Hand has never had a de facto leader in the comics, the ninja clan does have The Beast, an ancient demon they worship and seek to bring to Earth. Now we don’t know about you guys but we would sure love the idea of Weaver being possessed by a demon once more (who you gonna call?) as she leads a clan of ninjas.
Who do you think Weaver is playing in the show? Sound off in the comments below!
The Defenders is set to hit Netflix sometime in 2017.
