Sigourney Weaver Hints At What Viewers Can Expect Of Her In The Defenders

Academy Award-nominated Aliens star Sigourney Weaver teases what the villain she will portray in Netflix‘s The Defenders will be like.

The topic came up in the context of an interview about her plans to continue acting in James Cameron‘s Avatar series. Although Weaver was very expressive and very emphatic about her involvement with that franchise, she was quite a bit more reserved when the subject of the Marvel crossover series was brought up for discussion:

She’s also slated to break into the world of superheroes by playing the main villain of the upcoming Marvel’s The Defenders on Netflix. Weaver was tight-lipped about her role but did offer a tease for it, saying:

“I can’t say much, because they might kill me. I think everyone I work for might kill me if I tell you anything. But I have the most delicious character. She’s really smart, and she’s very in charge.”

Earlier this year, it was revealed that the first Avatar sequel is expected to hit theaters in December 2018 and would be followed by three more films in December 2020, December 2022, and December 2023. Confirmed to feature the return of cast members Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Stephen Lang and Sigourney Weaver, the Avatar sequels will be produced by Cameron and Jon Landau through their Lightstorm Entertainment.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
