Image of the Day: Marvel chief Joe Quesada's killer new Defenders poster

Despite the lackluster reception for Marvel's Iron Fist and its introduction of kung-fu crimefighter Danny Rand, Netflix's upcoming superhero series, The Defenders, is still poised to premiere this summer.

Marvel Chief Creative Officer and veteran artist Joe Quesada shared the official version of his striking Defenders poster created for the show's cast and crew wrap party. The original artwork gathers Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Iron Fist (Finn Jones) aglow in their signature colors, with the sinister threat of Sigourney Weaver's Alexandra and Elodie Yung’s brooding Elektra cast in the background.

Have a peek at Quesada's empowering new Defenders poster and tell us if you'll tune in when this fearsome foursome strikes in August.
