And that, folks, is how you trigger John Maxwell.

I don’t know exactly the point of this line, but Sigourney Weaver blurts it like it’s no joke so it must be serious. Also serious? Elektra’s resurrection, which ushers the Defenders—that’s Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist in case you’re not kept up—to a handsome-looking battle sequence across a white hallway.

In case you haven’t heard, Weaver’s villainess comes to New York City and she and the Hand are that big of a threat to necessitate the assembly of four vigilantes.

Here’s the full trailer:

The trailer is smart to tease more scenes with Luke Cage and Iron Fist together, both Defenders who go way back in the comics. The whole of it feels fine so far, and I’m genuinely invested in watching it when it comes out in August 18 on Netflix.
