Marvel broke out the biggest superhero of all for Netflix's latest "The Defenders" tease. The legend himself, Stan Lee, stars in the trailer, and his voice-over explains the importance of Marvel's Defenders as we see them in action.

"They're the greatest stories ever told. Heroes show us we don't need to be perfect to do what's right. It's not about living without fear, but facing injustice. It's not about being powerful, but finding your calling ... when you least expect it. They show us it's OK to be vulnerable no matter how tough you are. Because even though they're heroes they're still human."


"The Defenders" stars Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock/Daredevil), Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones), Mike Colter (Luke Cage), and Finn Jones (Danny Rand/Iron Fist).

The trailer ends with a shot of Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle/The Punisher saying, "Looks like I got here just in time."


According to Entertainment Weekly, The Punisher will not be in "The Defenders." Instead, that cameo is the first look at the character's upcoming standalone series.

"The Defenders" also stars Sigourney Weaver (Alexandra), Elodie Yung (Elektra), Scott Glenn (Stick), Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), Rosario Dawson (Claire Temple), Carrie-Anne Moss (Jeri Hogarth), Rachael Taylor (Trish Walker), Eka Darville (Malcolm Ducasse), Simone Missick (Misty Knight) and Jessica Henwick (Colleen Wing).

"Marvel's The Defenders" premieres August 18 on Netflix. "The Punisher," a spinoff of "Marvel's Daredevil," is coming later in 2017.
