Following the latest Defenders teaser, the first FULL trailer has just dropped – and you can watch it right here:

Marvel's The Defenders will see the stars of Netflix's comic shows Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist come together in an unprecedented TV event, uniting leads Charlie Cox, Krysten Ritter, Mike Colter and Finn Jones.

Badass cop Misty Knight (Simone Missick), budding investigative reporter Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll), high-priced lawyer Jeri Hogarth (Carrie-Anne Moss) and ever-present night nurse Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson) will help the heroes take on a terrifying evil.

Another familiar face will be Iron Fist's partner-in-crime-fighting Colleen Wing, with actress Jessica Henwick recently promising that the team-up drama will be explosive.

"We find her a month after we left her. It's really interesting she hasn't been able to deal with the emotional trauma she dealt with in Iron Fist. So it builds to a head and she explodes in Defenders," Henwick teased.

Today also saw Netflix drop another teaser, opening the door (or tomb, rather) for the return of Daredevil's undead love Elektra, played by Elodie Yung.

Mainly, however, we're gagging to see Sigourney Weaver as the show's baddie, especially as she previously revealed: "I have the most delicious character. She's really smart, and she's very in charge."

Marvel's The Defenders arrives on Netflix on August 18.
