Netflix is firing on all cylinders right now. In addition to their already-massive content collection and their ever-growing repertoire of stellar original content, they’ve recently inked deals with Disney to stream their animated film library and the powers-that-be behind the ‘Star Trek’ license as well.
There is another brand that Disney owns, Marvel, that has been very mutually-productive as of late, and not only did the companies use San Diego Comic Con to release footage of the next show due to be served up to audiences, ‘Marvel’s Luke Cage,’ but convention-goers were also treated to the first teaser trailer for ‘Marvel’s Iron Fist’ as well! Intelligently, Netflix released a hi-res version of the teaser online immediately following the panel, staving off any need for fanboys and their shaky-cam bootleg versions.
Check it out:
Set to be the final standalone series for an individual character before Netflix’s “crossover” series, ‘Marvel’s The Defenders,’ brings them all together as a team-type unit, the show stars Finn Jones as Danny Rand, alter-ego of the titular character. Also on the cast list are Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing, David Wenham as Harold Meachum, Jessica Stroup as Joy Meachum, and Tom Pelphrey as Ward Meachum. Notable “in-house” guest stars are Carrie-Anne Moss as Jeri Hogarth (seen in ‘Marvel’s Jessica Jones,’ also on Netflix) and Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple (seen in all previous Marvel Netflix series).
Netflix and Marvel also dropped an Iron Fist poster today, which we’ve shared for you below. No release date has yet been set for ‘Marvel’s Iron Fist,’ but it will likely hit the streaming service sometime before the 2017 premiere of ‘The Defenders.’
