Marvel have been killing it on Netflix. Say what you want about Iron Fist, the only reason it was so criticised is because the bar for it was set so high for it by Jessica Jones and Daredevil. If those hadn’t come before it, everyone would have loved Iron Fist. Luke Cage is… Passable.
Naturally, when the time comes for all four heroes to finally come together for a series, the excitement is uncontrollable, and you think you can’t get any more excited. That is, until Netflix decides to give us a trailer.
We had a teaser before, but it wasn’t much. This is a complete trailer. And if there’s one thing the trailer tries to make sure you understand, it’s that everything that has happened so far matters, and it does so by using most of its time to show as many characters as it can. Hoping I haven’t missed anyone, the list includes the four main characters, Stick, Foggy Nelson, Karen Page, Claire Temple, Elektra (who definitely has a big role), Sigourney Weaver’s character, Madam Gao, Colleen Wing and Patsy Walker. No Punisher though.
Clearly, elements from every preceding show exist in this one. Furthermore, the interactions between the four heroes is highlighted, and it’s exactly how it should be.
I’m glad this trailer arrived when there is just under a month left until release, because I might have died in anticipation if there was any more.
Lastly, the only reason I selected that image to be the feature is that I love it. See if you can spot why.
