Following the release of a very cool cover yesterday, Entertainment Weekly has now unveiled the first batch of official images from The Defenders. The first few are from a photoshoot offering a close-up look at Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter), and Iron Fist (Finn Jones). However, after that, we get some big reveals!

For starters, we see Luke behind bars following the events of his solo series, while a handcuffed Jessica is being questioned by Misty Knight, a pretty significant crossover.

Perhaps the biggest comes with our first at the mysterious villain being played by Alien legend, Sigourney Weaver. Named Alexandra, The Defenders showrunner Marco Ramirez says she has “no code name and no comic-book history,” but teased her role in the show as being pretty major. “Sigourney is the kind of person you can buy as the smartest person in the room, who you can also buy as a person holding a flamethrower. Her character is a very powerful force in New York City. She’s everything Sigourney is: sophisticated, intellectual, dangerous.” He pauses. “I’m sorry. I can only say a bunch of adjectives right now.”

Chances are she’ll be someone familiar to comic book fans, but we’re just going to have to wait and see as there’s so much about The Defenders we don’t know as of right now.

One important detail which has been confirmed though is that it reaches Netflix this summer!
