“This is my destiny…”
Even though Netflix’s new Marvel superhero team ‘The Defenders’ is currently filming, we have yet to see the final member of the team fully come into his own. Now the wait is over as a new trailer for ‘Iron Fist’ packs a powerful punch teasing what is to come!
The series will focus on billionaire Danny Rand (Finn Jones) who returns to New York City after missing for 15 years determined to reconnect with his past and reclaim his family legacy. He fights against the criminal element corrupting New York City with his kung-fu mastery and ability to summon the awesome power of the fiery Iron Fist.
‘Iron Fist’ stars Finn Jones as Danny Rand/Iron Fist, Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing, David Wenham as Harold Meachum, Jessica Stroup as Joy Meachum, and Tom Pelphrey as Ward Meachum. To help tie it to the other Netflix Marvel superheroes, Jessica Jones star Carrie-Anne Moss will reprise her role of attorney Jeri Hogarth alongside Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple (who is the connecting character seen in every series).
‘Iron Fist’ is the fourth new Marvel series that will be streaming on Netflix coming after the ‘Daredevil,’ ‘Jessica Jones’ and ‘Luke Cage.’ The four superheroes will come together in ‘The Defenders.’ A sixth Marvel series, ‘The Punisher’ is also currently filming and stars Jon Bernthal reprising his role from Season 2 of ‘Daredevil.’
All 13 episodes of ‘Iron Fist’ premieres on Netflix on March 17, 2017 at 12:01 PT.
