Sigourney Weaver's Defenders villain is still a mystery, but the veteran actress dropped a few hints about her character, calling the role "delicious."

"I can’t say much, because they might kill me," Weaver joked to Variety. "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."

While this doesn't reveal much, it does frame her character along the lines of other villains from the Netflix Defenders series, such as Daredevil's Wilson Fisk, and Luke Cage's Black Mariah.

Weaver also spoke about her other upcoming genre projects, including a spate of Avatar sequels, which she calls "more amazing than the first in terms of their scope," and the still dormant Alien sequel from District 9 director Neil Blomkamp, which she says will "finish Ripley's story," should it ever go into production.

Defenders is scheduled to debut on Netflix in late 2017.
