New ‘Defenders’ teaser hints at return of Elektra

Sort of lukewarm on Defenders, if I’m being honest. Luke Cage got real, real bad for me, and then Iron Fist was so terrible I didn’t even watch it. Still! Though! I’ll remain optimistic.


One of Marvel’s more popular characters is returning for The Defenders on Netflix, but with a bit of a twist.

A new, 15-second teaser for The Defenders is a bit of a callback to an earlier moment in Marvel and Netflix’s shared universe that diehard fans may appreciate. At the end of Daredevil’s second season, the body of Matt Murdock’s only love, Elektra, could be seen being placed into a chamber by members of the underground assassin organization, The Hand. The teaser essentially picks up from that moment and, as you can see in the video below, Elektra isn’t entirely gone from Marvel’s TV universe just yet.
