Netflix has had one hit after another with their Marvel shows but ‘Iron Fist‘ looks like it has the potential to top even ‘Daredevil’ for the throne. Danny Rand gives us action, martial arts, and a sense of humor that will bring audiences to watch it in droves if they pull off the right mixture and the latest clip makes it look like they’ll be doing just that. Rand is the last of ‘The Defenders’ that we’ve been waiting for and it looks like he’ll potentially be the most fun to see!
So “Who is Danny Rand?”
His answer is very Tony Stark like when he answers with:
Orphan, Monk, Billionaire, Living Weapon, The Final Defender.
I am the Iron Fist.
You can watch it right here!

I love that Claire Temple’s straightforward response is “what the hell does that mean?” and for those who haven’t read the comic that could be a huge question. All of these describe Rand to a T and if they can pull off the various aspects of his personality on screen than I am extremely excited.
Do you think this answers who the ‘Iron Fist’ is? What aspects from the comics do you feel will shine through to the Netflix series? Share your thoughts below True Believers!
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.
All 13 episodes of ‘Iron Fist’ premieres on Netflix on March 17, 2017 at 12:01 PT.
