Witness: Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter), and Danny Rand (Finn Jones) all together, ready to take on crime in New York City.

But that wasn't the only surprise Marvel had in store for the evening. They also announced that the villain in the upcoming Defenders Netflix event would be none other than SIGOURNEY FUCKING WEAVER.

Weaver, who is an Emmy and Oscar nominee, has long been a bonafide queen of nerd culture for her roles in films like Alien, Ghostbusters, and so many more. She's straight-up iconic.

Though it hasn't yet been revealed WHO Weaver will be playing in Defenders, the audience at NYCC started chanting "HOLY. SHIT. HOLY. SHIT." when Marvel TV Vice President Jeph Loeb made the announcement.
