Now, the Defenders are together at last. We can't wait to see how the four street heroes now on Netflix - Daredevil/Matt Murdoch (Charlie Cox), Iron Fist/Danny Rand (Finn Jones), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) and Luke Cage (Mike Colter) - will team up and who they'll take down.

The not-super heroes are loners by choice or circumstance, but reluctantly agree to band together to take on the city's next evil.

The first teaser for Marvel's upcoming Netflix show The Punisher has been released and it looks sick.

Matt Murdock has given up his stint as the Devil of Hell's Kitchen after Elektra's death in Season 2 of Daredevil.

Other characters who will pop up from the previous series will include Jessica's pal Trish Walker, Matt's buddy Foggy, police detective Misty Knight, and Frank Castle aka "The Punisher". "The Luke Cage rap is perhaps the least memorable, although that show's official song 'Bulletproof Love" would've been hard to top. And Danny Rand is brought back to NY from Cambodia, where he was chasing The Hand with girlfriend Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick).

Ladakh scuffle: After China's 'not aware' remark, India says yes it happened

Mewtwo Raids Coming To Pokémon GO
According to Gamespot, these four Legendaries are now available via Raid Battles [VIDEO ] and will be available through August 31. Niantic has announced that Mewtwo is the next legendary Pokemon to be added to the outrageously successful Pokemon Go game.

Weaver is an electric villain, a scene-stealer in shimmery geometric ensembles spouting chilly monologues about immortality and living weapons.

The identity of Sigourney Weaver's villain is still cloaked in mystery although there have been theories as to who she really is. And Danny Rand (Finn Jones) has been traveling the world on his private jet hunting The Hand with his companion Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick), and getting inundated with eye rolls every time he introduces himself as "The Immortal Iron Fist". She seems to know that what Daredevil says to his team at one point in the clip is true-"The only way out of here is together"-and that she needs the Defenders kept apart for her plan to succeed".

The Friends: The Marvel/Netflix shows have some great supporting characters, and they all get a moment to shine in the first episodes of "The Defenders".

But this week Jones and Cox joined forces to talk about "The Defenders" and being part of this eight-episode joint venture. Marvel TV's Jeph Loeb told Collider this year that "The Defenders" Season 2 has not been confirmed as of yet but considering the series' massive success (it is Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes), a season renewal is probably on the way. However, "Iron Fist" did not do very well as far as the critics were concerned.

As for newcomers who want to sample the "Defenders'" predecessors, be advised: Each of the four has its own distinct personality. Her shadowy new role combines distant sadness with lethal talents. Luckily, most viewers are already invested in the characters, so it's not a huge problem. Heck, if Game of Thrones can cover dozens of characters across Westeros in seven episodes this season, there's no reason why The Defenders should have to be any longer.
