With Luke Cage hitting hard over on Netflix and the trailer for the upcoming Iron Fist (here) meaning the onscreen Defenders are almost assembled, we have a pretty damned awesome bit of news about the big bad in The Defenders series.

Hot from New York Comic Con 2016, Marvel’s head of TV Jeph Loeb has announced that Sigourney Weaver will be the main villain in Netflix’s highly anticipated series..

Weaver herself was onstage with Daredeveil (Charlie Cox), Iron fist (Finn Jones), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), and Luke Cage (Mike Colter).

While it hasn’t been revealed who she’ll be playing – fee free to start speculating guys – Weaver is already a Nerd icon with Aliens, Ghostbusters, Cabin In The Woods, Galaxy Quest and Avatar under her belt, so we’re excited as heck to see what she’s bringing to the table as far as the MCU is concerned.

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….
