Sigourney Weaver might be about to clash with The Defenders, but that doesn’t necessarily mean she’s a bad guy.

Ahead of the superhero team-up premiering on Netflix next month, the heroes assembled at EW’s Comic-Con suite to tease the series and give a little insight into Weaver’s “admirable” Alexandra.

“She’s our main antagonist,” shared Jeph Loeb, the head of Marvel Television. “We don’t ever refer to anyone as the bad guy. She has a point of view. They have a point of view. And they may not necessarily be the same point of view. She’s part of a long-term plan to get something done, and if you have been watching all of the shows, there are little bread crumbs along the way that turn into the cake that is Defenders.”

The Defenders hits Netflix on Aug. 18.
