One thing that we keep hearing about the Marvel Cinematic Universe is that it’s all connected. All of the TV shows and movies from the House of Ideas are intertwined because they all take place in the same continuity. That means that Daredevil, Agent Phil Coulson, Captain America, Star-Lord, King Black Bolt, and the rest of the Marvel Heroes could all theoretically be at the same place at the same time. In fact, that’s probably what will happen in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’. But until everyone is actually assembled, it’s nice to be reminded from time to time that they all live in the same world while we’re enjoying everyone’s individual stories. And now we have the latest piece of ‘Iron Fist’ promotional material to do exactly that.
Earlier this week, IGN unveiled a new banner featuring Finn Jones as the living weapon Danny Rand. Styled similarly to posters that were created for ‘Daredevil’, ‘Jessica Jones’, and ‘Luke Cage’, this image shows off Danny’s corner of the MCU. You can also see Jessica Henwick’s badass Colleen Wing and Rand’s childhood acquaintances/business associates Ward and Joy Meachum. But the most interesting thing in the picture has to be Avengers Tower, one of Tony Stark’s bases for Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. You can check it out in the image below:
While it may be super cool to see Avengers Tower in this poster, that doesn’t necessarily mean that the show itself will feature references to the acclaimed Marvel movies. The previously released Netflix shows existed pretty independently from them and there’s a good chance that ‘Iron Fist’ could be the same way. However, the only way to really find out will be to tune in this weekend once the series goes live and the final piece of ‘The Defenders’ comes into play.
How would you like to see Iron Fist integrated into the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Which Avengers (or Guardians or Agents or Inhumans) would you like to see him team up with down the line? Let us know in the comments.
