The Defenders Get Their Own Photo Shoot!

The Defenders is due this this year, and with filming underway, it’s time to see the team all geared up together. Entertainment Weekly has the first set of photos with Matt Murdock, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, and Danny Rand!

Here are a few from the series, including the magazine upcoming cover. Everyone is basking in light the same color as their traditional uniform, it would seem, so we start with green:

Then yellow!

Red! (Not quite buying the suit, though; is Matt Murdock even practicing law these days? He kinda gave up on… everything last season. Except Daredeviling. So. Maybe he should just be hanging out in comfy sweats?)

Purple! (Accompanied by a very poignant LIQUOR sign. Yes, we know Jessica has a problem, thanks for reminding us.)

This is a shot from episode two of the miniseries, and it’s hard not to be excited over the prospect of Misty Knight and Jessica meeting. Even if they argue. Especially if they argue?

And here is our crew hanging out on a taxi cab:

Just one thing, though… why is Jessica Jones doing “the butt pose” in both of two of the three promo photos? It doesn’t seem like the sort of thing Jessica would be excited about, and also stop with the butt pose. We’ve had this conversation before.

Head on over to Entertainment Weekly for more photos (including your first glimpse at Sigourney Weaver!)
