All eyes are going to be on the Avengers and their pending Infinity War, but long before that, we’re finally going to see Marvel’s street-level, and streetwise, heroes team up for The Defenders. The series launches next month on Netflix, so the hype-building has begun and frankly not much has to be done because we’ve been building up to this for three years now. So what can they do to help sell this movie in face of that? How about bringing on the guy who knows Marvel heroes better than anyone? 

This new spot of The Defenders features Stan “The Man” Lee, looking very high class, riding in the back of a car, narrating about how this is going to be a story about heroes, but they are not gods or monsters, they’re just regular folks, with the flaws of regular folks, doing the absolute best that they can. Give it a watch below.

Oh, and here are some new images:

The Defenders follows the ultimate team-up of Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Iron Fist (Finn Jones) as they battle to save New York from the nefarious forces of the Hand. The series co-stars Elodie YungScott GlennDeborah Ann WollElden Henson, Rosario DawsonCarrie-Anne MossRachael TaylorEka DarvilleSimone Missick, Jessica Henwick, and Sigourney Weaver. 

The entire series of The Defenders drops on August 18 on Netflix.
