New team poster for The Defenders and Charlie Cox talks about Daredevil’s status when the series starts

It’s hard to beat a cool superhero team-up, isn’t it?

Well, feast your eyes on this new poster for The Defenders which is a little over a fortnight away.

The poster hits as we learn that Matt Murdock, played by Charlie Cox, will no longer be Daredevil when we meet him again in The Defenders.

After the loss of Elecktra in season two, it seems Murdock lost faith in what he was doing. Cox, speaking to Cinemablend, said: “At the end of Daredevil season two, everyone failed, Matt failed, and the consequences were devastating. Six or so months have passed, and he’s had to completely reevaluate everything that he believes, everything that he does. And he’s decided to hang up the suit, as it were.

“He’s focusing all of his energies on being a pro bono lawyer. And I don’t think he has any interest, really, in being Daredevil anymore.”

We hope it doesn’t take long for him to put the suit on…

Let us know what you think.

“Marvel’s The Defenders” follows Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. A quartet of singular heroes with one common goal – to save New York City. This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realize they just might be stronger when teamed together.

The show stars Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, Finn Jones as Iron Fist, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, and Charlie Cox as Daredevil; the villain, Alexandra, is portrayed by legendary actress Sigourney Weaver.

The Defenders come to Netflix on August 18.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
