The First Trailer For ‘The Defenders’ Shows Rosario Dawson Bringing The Super Team Together

The first trailer for “The Defenders” is here and it looks LIT.

Superhero fans, rejoice! Netflix has just dropped the first trailer for the new “The Defenders” series and it is as action packed as it is funny. There are a couple things that we learn from the two-and-a-half-minute-long trailer and one of them is how the team first got together. The Defenders, a team made up of Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Daredevil, are tasked with keeping New York City from literally falling apart after threats from evil forces. One unlikely hero is Claire Temple, who is played by Rosario Dawson. Temple might only be a doctor but she plays a pivotal role in getting the team together. Specifically, we get to see how Temple brings together Iron Fist and Luke Cage after they fight each other in an alley. Apart from Dawson’s brief cameos in the trailer, “The Defenders” promises lots of action, including those hallway fights Marvel’s Netflix series appear to love.

With production companies putting full stops to some of our most anticipated watches of the season because of the Coronavirus pandemic, we were pretty sure our hankering for some action-packed films would have to be assuaged by rewatches. Fortunately, actress and stuntwoman Zoë Bell had the brilliant idea to create the ultimate combating match!

In a recent short posted to her Instagram, Bell rounded up the top names in Hollywood for an incredible action-packed clip!

Bell’s five-minute-long action short titled “Boss Bitch Fight Challenge” features Rosario Dawson and Zoe Saldaña.

The action-packed video features the likes of Zoe Saldaña, Rosario Dawson Halle Berry, Elle Driver, Margot Robbie, Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pugh, Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz, Julia Butters, and Tamiko Brownlee. All of the celebrities in the film are fortunately taking part in social-distancing practices and features them from their homes.

In the clip, Bill kicks things off from her sofa before exclaiming “I am so bored. I just want to play with my friends.”

One of the bigger delights of the clip included a moment when Cameron Díaz made a return to acting.

Días who made her last film appearance in 2014 after announcing her retirement, surprised us when she joined in the fun and threw a few punches of her own.

“So much fun to participate in @therealzoebell’s #BossBitchFightChallenge. Fun way to fight boredom with some badass babes!” Díaz wrote in an Instagram caption of her post.

“La Borinqueña” Celebrates 125th Anniversary Of Puerto Rican Flag With Special Cover

La Borinqueña

“La Borinqueña” is a comic first created by Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez in 2016. The graphic novels have been more than literature. The graphic novel has raised money for Puerto Rican causes and has served as a cultural point of pride for people from the Caribbean island. The latest cover of “La Borinqueña” is no different.

The new cover for the latest “La Borinqueña” graphic novel is a testament to the protesting spirit of the island.

La Borinqueña is joined by a handful of famous Puerto Ricans who have used their name to fight for causes they care about in Puerto Rico. Rosario Dawson, Bad Bunny, Ricky Martin, Residente, and iLe are all on the cover marching with La Borinqueña flying above them.

Puerto Rico has been a pressure cooker of activism and protests in recent years following the disastrous Hurricane Maria.

Puerto Ricans felt abandoned by the federal government following the devastating hurricane that knocked out power to the island in 2017. American citizens were begging for help to rebuild but were left behind in the relief efforts being handed out to Florida and Texas that year. Since then, the island has been rocked by political scandals, mismanagement of relief supplies, and a series of earthquakes.

Following the hurricane, a political scandal involving then-governor Ricardo Rosselló stunned Puerto Ricans on the island and around the world.

Gov. Rosselló was part of a group chat scandal that ended his political career. In the chat, Gov. Rosselló and other government officials spoke in degrading terms about women and the LGBTQ+ community. The grotesque chats are released after Puerto Ricans protested a religious freedom bill supported by Gov. Rosselló. Bad Bunny and Ricky Martin joined forces to go to the governor’s mansion in San Juan to discuss the bill and the need for it to not pass. The protesters won that fight and the anti-LGBTQ+ legislation was not made into law.

The governor was also embroiled in a financial scandal with funds being misappropriated with government contracts. Millions of dollars were being mismanaged and given to people not qualified for the contracts.

Bad Bunny paused an international tour to fly back to Puerto Rico to fight against Gov. Rosselló. The musician told his fans that he had to do the right thing and that meant taking a pause from his tour and fighting alongside other Puerto Ricans. Bad Bunny made it up to fans after fighting for the future of the island that he wants to see.

Puerto Ricans called on Gov. Rosselló to resign over the released chats and the mismanagement of government funds.

The people of Puerto Rico won that fight too. The island saw prolonged and large protests drawing the world’s attention to the allegations of corruption against Gov. Rosselló. The sustained pressure from Puerto Ricans and the international community forced the governor to resign from his office. Crowds of Puerto Ricans cheered for the announcement in a unified celebration.

“La Borinqueña” is celebrating this resilient spirit of Puerto Rico in the new cover.

Puerto Ricans are not shy about flexing their protesting muscles. The people of the island have shown that they are not afraid to take to the street to force the kind of change they want to see. Much like other places in the world, like Hong Kong, the people of Puerto Rico will not back down from what they demand.

You can order your digital copy of the latest “La Borinqueña” graphic novel now.

Pa’lante, Puerto Rico.
