Stan Lee may not make physical cameos in Marvel’s Netflix Defenders series, but his influence is felt all the same. See the man himself narrate a new teaser for the big team-up, in the process revealing our first look at The Punisher.

A new teaser has made its way online, as Stan Lee narrates footage of the first four series from a car digitally inserted into various scenes. There are a few frames of new Defenders footage here and there (hello, Luke Cage and Jessica Jones reunion), but staying ‘til the very end will also bring you our first official footage from The Punisher (or perhaps a Defenders cameo?).

Now set for an August 18 premiere, Marvel’s eight-episode Netflix Defenders will feature among the returning cast Elodie Yung, Jessica Henwick, Scott Glenn, Rosario Dawson, Rachael Taylor, Simone Missick, Deborah Ann Woll, Carrie-Anne Moss, Elden Henson and Eka Darville. Sigourney Weaver will portray the villainous “Alexandra,” while the team-up series will be helmed by Daredevil showrunner Marco Ramirez, and directed in part by Jessica Jones director S.J. Clarkson.

We’ll likely have more looks at The Defenders this week, so watch the trailer below and stay tuned.
