Sigourney Weaver cast as Marvel’s Defenders villain

By Alex Wiggan

Award-winning actress Sigourney Weaver has been cast in Marvel/Netflix show, The Defenders. The Alien actress will take on the role of the series’ chief villain in the super hero team-up show.

Weaver’s casting was announced at the New York Comic Con, which took place this weekend. The announcement came during The Defenders panel, which featured all four primary Defenders actors: Charlie Cox (Daredevil), Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones), Mike Colter (Luke Cage) and Finn Jones (Iron Fist).

No word yet on who Weaver is playing.

Marvel’s The Defenders is currently scheduled to hit Netflix in 2017, joining new Marvel shows, Iron Fist and The Punisher. The streaming service is currently airing the latest Marvel/Netflix collaboration, Luke Cage (which we liked A LOT).

So, what do you think about Weaver’s casting? Do you think the actress is a great fit for the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Let us know your thoughts.
