Entertainment Weekly has provided the first look at the villain played by Sigourney Weaver in Marvel/Netflix’s The Defenders.
Entertainment Weekly has the first look at Sigourney Weaver’s character in the Defenders Netflix series. The Defenders is the team-up mini-series that will see Marvel/Netflix characters Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist join forces to face a larger threat to their New York streets. While not much has been revealed at this time outside of a name and some adjectives, more Defenders details are expected to be released when the next issue of EW hits the stands. Check out what the article had to say below.
Meet Sigourney Weaver’s Alexandra, the villain of Marvel’s The Defenders impressive enough to draw the attention of Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter), and Iron Fist (Finn Jones). She’s an “utter badass,” showrunner Marco Ramirez says of the character, who is the perfect fit for the Sigourney Weaver, of Alien and Avatar fame. “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.”
“We knew it would take something massive to pull these four characters from their individual worlds to work together,” Ramirez says, “but also small enough that it felt like it existed in our world.”
The Defenders will be released on the streaming media service later this year.
