Based in New York city after the wake of the "Incident" (as seen in Marvel's the Avengers!), we met Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage as they battled the crime, the Hand, and numerous super-villains.  This year, we were introduced to the final member of this new Defenders: Iron Fist!

Finn Jones, almost unrecognizable from his role as Loras in Game of Thrones, is Danny: martial arts expert, chosen Guardian of K'un-Lun, and heir to the massive Rand Industries.  A lot of the show is Danny re-adjusting to life in N.Y.C. after being presumed dead for 15 years. And don't expect a dark and psychological roller-coaster like Jessica Jones. It's a bit silly and tongue-in-cheek, but still entertaining.  Iron Fist's supporting cast really shines, especially Jessica Henwick as butt-kicking Colleen Wing and Tom Pelphrey as a sympathetic yet worrying Ward Meachum.

Give it a shot and just think, the Defenders will be out on August 18th! Here's a surprisingly satisfactory 16 second teaser trailer:
