Last night, we got our first clip from the first episode of the Defenders featuring none other than Sigourney Weaver’s Alexandra and Wai Ching Ho’s Madame Gao discussing their plans for New York on a park bench. Not necessarily the most private place to discuss evil plots, but who are we to judge. Seems like the pair has been at this whole villain thing longer than any of us, so to each her own I guess. Now, coming off of that first bit of footage, a second clip has just landed featuring Matt talking with Father Lantom during a confession.

We’ve known for some time that Daredevil has hung up the horns in the aftermath of Elektra’s death in the season 2 finale last year, and it seems like he’s handling his grief pretty well, given his past track record. At this point though, it looks like he’s torn between moving on from both Elektra and his alter ego and honoring her memory by taking it back up again. If we had to guess, he’ll probably don the red again. Just a theory.
All episodes of The Defenders will be streaming on August 18th on Netflix.
