The Defenders has officially dropped on Netflix, and fans everywhere can’t get enough of the first-ever team-up of the street-level heroes. To mark the release of the brand-new series, the official Twitter accounts from Iron Fist, Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage have lit up like Christmas trees, and they are downright sassy.
The Defenders Take Over Twitter, And Take No Prisioners
Each account encompasses the essence of the character it represents. In a series of exchanges, the individual Twitter accounts take shots at one another, and play off the chemistry they demonstrated in The Defenders.
To help promote the show, The Defenders' official Twitter account tweeted a series of emojis that represent the series. In reply, #Daredevil, #IronFist and #LukeCage responded with emojis that define them, and #JessicaJones topped off the exchange with a tweet truly befitting the character:
One Twitter User decided to take a shot at Iron Fist — since his show was not received well by fans and critics — but Jessica Jones wasn’t having any of it. Iron Fist responded with gratefulness, but Jones took a shot at him as well:
The next exchange spawned from a picture tweeted of the show’s main villain, Alexandra (Sigourney Weaver), and the Defenders started bantering. Iron Fist pops into the thread, but Jones quickly smacks him down:
During Luke Cage, the phrase “getting coffee” was established as a fun inside joke that regarded Cage’s extracurricular activities. A Twitter User made a comment about Cage “getting coffee” with Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson) in The Defenders, and the whole team jumped in to take some shots at each other:
In response to a trailer for The Defenders that showed Claire Temple and Luke Cage together, Daredevil seemed to not be aware of the relationship. All of the other Defenders hopped in on the thread, which led to Jessica Jones dissing Iron Fist yet again:
There are tons of tweets from all four Defenders sprawled across Twitter, and they are all very entertaining. While it might just look like silly fun, it’s actually a brilliant form of viral marketing to promote the release of The Defenders. Each one of the accounts is being handled wonderfully, and they are actively engaging with fans and each other in a way that helps spread the word about the show, while also giving us some good laughs.
Make sure you catch The Defenders on Netflix now.
