Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

The head of Marvel Television sur­prised fans at Comic-Con Fri­day by show­ing the en­tire first episode of the new Net­flix se­ries "The De­fend­ers." The show that unites su­per­heroes Jes­sica Jones, Luka Cage, Dare­devil and Iron Fist pre­mieres next month. Sigour­ney Weaver plays the vil­lain. Weaver and the rest of the cast, in­clud­ing Krys­ten Rit­ter, Mike Colter, Char­lie Cox and Finn Jones, ap­peared dur­ing the pre­sen­ta­tion in­side the San Diego Con­ven­tion Cen­ter's largest ex­hibit hall. Marvel Television's Jeph Loeb got a sur­prise him­self: He re­ceived the Comic-Con Inkpot Award just as he was be­gin­ning the pre­sen­ta­tion. Comic-Con's pro­gram­ming di­rec­tor Ed­die Ibrahim choked up as he pre­sented Loeb with the award, say­ing his work in comics and television in­spired his ca­reer path. The award rec­og­nizes achieve­ments in sci-fi, fan­tasy and comics.
