Sigourney Weaver had some things to say about her role as the main villain of Marvel/Netflix’s The Defenders.
Not anything meaty, but enough to pique our interest. Apparently, she’s having fun playing opposite Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist.
She told Movies.com:
Meanwhile, I am doing The Defenders, which is a lot of fun. It has a wonderful cast, and we’re doing it right here in New York, which means a lot to me.
Basically the four heroes come up against this really nice woman, who I’m playing.
It’s been a blast and I really love my character. I love the shows, too, which I wasn’t familiar with before doing this. A real love letter to New York. To me they’re not superheroes; they’re people with a gift. It’s just a different scale, and I’m really enjoying the scale of it. The apocalyptic thing is a little harder for me to understand.
The Defenders is set to release on Netflix some time in late 2017.
