It's all been building to this. The eponymous stars of Marvel's Netflix series 'Daredevil', 'Jessica Jones', 'Iron Fist' and 'Luke Cage' are uniting in a series called 'The Defenders'. And now we finally have the first trailer.

The foursome unite to save New York City from enemies including the Hand, Elektra and Alexandra (played by Sigourney Weaver).

Our heroes are played by Charlie Cox (Daredevil), Mike Colter (Luke Cage), Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones) and Finn Jones (Danny Rand).

The first season will comprise eight episodes, with no word on whether a second series has been commissioned yet.

But considering what a cash cow Marvel has proved in recent years, both for Netflix and Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation (the production company behind Marvel's film franchises), we would imagine it's on the cards.

'The Defenders' will be available to watch on Netflix from 18th August.
