THE DEFENDERS Announce Release Date With New Teaser

Security footage teaser reveals new details about Netflix’s THE DEFENDERS!

The Defenders has officially set a summer release date on Netflix!

Netflix posted up a teaser for the show on YouTube, which features the stars of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist in an elevator together, looking agitated. After a few seconds, Jessica gets a little feisty and punches out the security camera.

The numbers the camera stops at are also the show’s release date: 08:18:20:17 aka August 18, 2017!

The video was quickly taken down (though we’re unsure whether it was done intentionally or because it truly wasn’t supposed to be up yet,) but the Internet is quick to save these sort of things. Check it out!

The numbers at the top of the video aren’t coincidental, either. leads to a mock-up of the New York Bulletin online. Karen Page from Daredevil is an ace reporter for the paper. The website features an interview with the Meachum siblings, various articles on all the heroes, a spotlight on local heroes including Claire Temple, and even an ad for Colleen Wing’s dojo.
