Stan Lee Narrates Amazing Netflix's New Marvel "The Defenders" Trailer and Poster

A hot new trailer for The Defenders was just released on NetFlix Korea and Stan Lee narrates. The Defenders miniseries was first announced in late 2013 and after almost four years the team is finally assembling. After the release of two seasons of Daredevil and the first seasons of Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist, the heroes of the Netflix Marvel Cinematic Universe are finally teaming up. The four solitary heroes are joining together with a common goal – to save New York City.

The trailer is narrated by 94-year-old Stan Lee riding in the back of a car. In a nice touch, the license plate spells out "Stan Lee".

As he rides he looks out the window to see various action scenes around New York. Most of them are recycled scenes from the shows, but there are a couple of new shots. What makes this trailer special is how it highlights how different the Netflix shows are from the movies. The street-level, dark and gritty feel of the shows also highlight how these guys are human.

"They’re the greatest stories ever told," says Lee as he sees Daredevil (Charlie Cox) fighting the Hand and other thugs. “Heroes show us we don’t need to be perfect to do what’s right," Lee says watching the all too human Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) stop a mugging and get throwing a guy into a garbage bin. "It’s not about living in fear, it’s about facing injustice," Lee says thoughtfully.

"It’s not about feeling powerful," Lee continues as he passes by Danny Rand (Finn Jones) using his fist to knock out a wall of the hospital, "but finding your calling when you least expect it."

Lee passes by an alley where Luke Cage (Mike Colter) stops a car and says: "They show us it’s okay to be vulnerable no matter how tough you are. Because even though they’re heroes, they’re still human."

Then we get a shot of the four in a hallway about to drop the pain.

Finally, we get a shot of the Punisher (Jon Bernthal) saying "Looks like I got here just in time."

Marvel’s The Defenders stars Charlie Cox, (Matt Murdock/Daredevil), Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones), Mike Colter (Luke Cage) and Finn Jones (Danny Rand/Iron Fist).  Additional cast members include Academy-Award nominated actress Sigourney Weaver (Alexandra), √Člodie Yung (Elektra Natchios), Scott Glenn (Stick), Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), Elden Henson (Franklin "Foggy" Nelson), Rosario Dawson (Claire Temple), Carrie-Anne Moss (Jeri Hogarth), Rachael Taylor (Trish Walker), Eka Darville (Malcolm Ducasse), Simone Missick (Misty Knight) and Jessica Henwick (Colleen Wing).
