“Marvel’s The Defenders” are coming, but all fans want to know about is the villain that brings them together. Sigourney Weaver will play the antagonist that draws the attention of all the local superheroes — Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. However, only a few hints have been dropped about the evil Alexandra. Here’s what we know so far:

She Isn’t From The Comics: You can search through Marvel databases for characters named Alex all day, but you won’t come up with any answers about Alexandra’s identity. Executive producer Marco Ramirez revealed that the “Defenders” writers gave her the moniker. “We chose [the name] ‘Alexandra’ because it sounded regal,” the EP told Entertainment Weekly.

New Yorker: It sounds like Alexandra has always been around. She has just managed to keep her name away from her crime scenes. Weaver emphasized that the character has been in the city for quite a while.

“I haven’t played a New Yorker since I did ‘Eyewitness’ with Bill Hurt a thousand years ago, and so to play someone who’s a patron of the arts, who’s sort of at these events, who’s a sort of New York citizen who knows and loves the city and its history,” Weaver told CBR. “I just loved all of that, so I felt they approached me with very much the right attitude, you know, in terms of wanting to create an older heroine who wasn’t just one or two things. She’s very complex and, even during this series, you’re not going to see the end of what she is.”

Sympathetic: She’s evil enough to unite the Defenders, but Finn Jones told CBR that fans might find themselves empathizing with the villain. “I also think Sigourney’s character is really relatable,” the Danny Rand actor said. “She’s not just a clear-cut villain. You can kind of side with her, and I think that’s really interesting and really surprising.”

Color: Netflix’s Marvel shows have a clear color palette that goes with each hero. Daredevil (Charlie Cox) has red, Jessica (Krysten Ritter) has purple, Luke (Mike Colter) has yellow and Iron Fist (Finn Jones) has green. Alexandra’s scenes are filled with plenty of white. While it is often associated with purity or innocence (neither of which seem to fit Alexandra), Weaver noted that it’s symbolic of her character not getting her hands dirty. When International Business Times spoke to costume designer Stephanie Maslansky, she noted the difference.

“I’d say very elegant, very beautiful,” Maslansky told IBT of Alexandra’s wardrobe. “I had so much fun designing her wardrobe. It was very, possibly even in a way, grounded in an older world. Maybe very, in a way, European. More of a global feeling to her wardrobe, very lush.”

The Hand: Who is Alexandra working for? The widespread theory is that she’s with the Hand, and most evidence supports that. In a new clip, she speaks to Madame Gao (Wai Ching Ho), who is a top boss at the evil organization. Alexandra seems to be Gao’s superior, but Ramirez would not confirm that she is part of the Hand.

“In ‘Daredevil’ and ‘Iron Fist,’ the two shows with the most references to the Hand, [characters] always say ‘Oh, there are players beyond [those we’ve met] that are bigger than this,’ or ‘There are people that work beyond this who are pulling the strings,’” he told EW. “The truth is she’s like the thing in the shadows who’s finally walking out.”

Elektra: While her connection to the Hand is in question, her relationship with Elektra (Elodie Yung) is definitely clear. At the “Defenders” panel at San Diego Comic-Con, both Weaver and Yung teased what was coming. Yung noted that Elektra will be suffering from amnesia after Alexandra brings her back from the dead. “She’s trained by Alexandra to be some sort of weapon,” Yung teased at Comic-Con.

The mentorship won’t exactly be heart warming. “Their relationship is certainly one of the most unusual and interesting relationships I’ve ever had, on screen or off,” Weaver teased.

Fans will find out more about Alexandra when “The Defenders” hits Netflix Aug. 18.
