Are you already finished with Netflix’s ‘Luke Cage’? Wondering when you can get your next Marvel superhero TV fix? Well, Netflix to the rescue! The streaming service has released a teaser announcing the release date for its next series, ‘Iron Fist’, which will be the last of the four Marvel shows it announced back in 2013, not counting ‘The Defenders’ which will unite all four heroes in a limited series.
So when can you start binging ‘Iron Fist’? Observe below:
Yes, March 17, 2017 is the date, roughly six months from now. (Also, coincidentally, St. Patrick’s Day.) Considering that the shows have been arriving two-per-year that seems right on schedule. (‘The Punisher’ just began filming so that will most likely be the second series of 2017. No word on ‘The Defenders’,’Daredevil’ Season Three or ‘Jessica Jones’ Season Two, all of which have been ordered.)
Fifteen years after being presumed dead in a plane crash, Danny Rand (Finn Jones) mysteriously returns to New York City determined to reclaim his birthright and family company. However, when a long-destined enemy rises in New York, this living weapon is forced to choose between his family’s legacy and his duties as the Iron Fist.
Finn Jones stars as Danny Rand/Iron Fist. As you can see in the new photo above, Rand is quite the butt kicker, having already taken out a room full of… well, we don’t know. Assassins? Spies? Henchmen of some evil mastermind? We’ll find out in March!
Danny Wenham costars as Harold Meachum, Rands’ parents’ former business partner. Jessica Stroup and Tom Pelphrey appear as Joy and Ward Meachum, Harold’s children and Danny’s childhood friends. Jessica Henwick appears as Colleen Wing. In the comics, Colleen is a martial expert in her own right and the business partner of Misty Knight, played by Simone Missick on ‘Luke Cage’.
There are rumors that Shang-Chi the Master of Kung Fu will also appear.
In addition, as with the other Marvel shows, expect to see some cast members from other shows popping up. The most prominent is Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple, who has appeared on all of the prior series. Also slated to appear is Carrie-Anne Moss’ character Jeri Hogarth, who debuted on ‘Jessica Jones’.
Are you (fist) pumped for ‘Iron Fist’ to join the other shows on ‘Netflix’? How do you think it will measure up?
