Currently, reports are that Weaver will play someone who is connect to the criminal organization known as The Hand. Yet again, there is still no name attached to her role. That would make the most sense considering how much of a dominant role they’ve played in Daredevil. Not to mention, when we last saw the man with no fear, he was battling against their entire battalion. Usually in this situation, the smart thing to do is take a look at what they did in the comic books. However, the main villain for The Defenders there was Dormammu. That team was fronted by Dr. Strange and Namor, one who is soon to make his debut in the MCU and the other is a long-shot possibility.
Known for playing roles such as Dana from Ghostbusters and Gwen Demarco in Galaxy Quest, Weaver brings a lot of hype with her to the series. But it’s all for the good of things. Her demeanor make look calm and collective, but when she needs to, she can kick it better than some of the top men in the industry. Just take a look at her as Ripley in Aliens, that’s a role from 30 years ago and she continues to take the front wherever she is today. She’s a powerful female lead and sounds great for this kind of role. It looks like the heroes have their work cut out for them.
