Marvel’s The Defenders Drops to Netflix August 18th
If you blink, you might miss it. The “Midland Circle Security Elevator B,” video shows Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Matt Murdock, and Danny Rand during an elevator ride.
When Jessica realized they’re being recorded, she smashes the camera and the footage cuts off. When the video ends, the timestamp reads 08:18:20:17 aka 08/18/2017, i.e. the Netflix series premiere date.
Here’s another little tip from Deadline:
If you type in the numbers at the top left of the video into your browser (188.8.131.52), it will take you to the New York Bulletin’s website (Karen Page’s place of business in Daredevil). Scroll to the bottom and you’ll see the premiere confirmed. The line reads “Watch ‘Marvel’s The Defenders‘ All Episodes Streaming Only on Netflix August 18.”
We’ll save you from typing in the IP number. Here’s a link to NYBulletin.com. The message in fine (not to mention light grey) print at the very bottom of the page reads, “Watch “Marvel’s The Defenders” All Episodes Streaming Only on Netflix August 18 | © 2017 MARVEL & ABC Studios.”
The video was also posted to The Defenders‘ official Twitter page.
