Ever since Iron Fist debuted last month, fans have been wondering when the next Marvel and Netflix instalment - The Defenders - will be released.

Some believe the show’s release date is hidden within the latest teaser trailer, which features all four Defenders: Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist. 

Note: As writing, the video has been removed from Netflix's official Youtube channel... Watch below via Twitter.

The 15-second clip, shot as if CCTV footage in an elevator, concludes with Jessica smacking the camera, numbers in the top right corner reading 08:18:20:17. 

That number is actually The Defenders’ release date - Friday, 18 August 2017 - and marks around five months from Iron Fist’s debut. Another teaser - in the form of a fake website for The New York Bulliten, the publication Karen Page works for - also reveals the 18 August as the show's release date. The bottom of the page reads: Watch “Marvel’s The Defenders” All Episodes Streaming Only on Netflix August 18 

It should also be noted is how Luke Cage and Jessica Jones both touched down towards the second half of the year - 30 September and 20 November respectively. The Defenders is likely coming slightly sooner thanks to The Punisher series also coming this year.
