Sigourney Weaver is Enjoying her Role as Villain in The Defenders

Sigourney Weaver portrays the primary villain of The Defenders

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.
