Iron Fist

Netflix is getting set to roll out ‘Iron Fist’ Season Two and has unveiled a new teaser to promote it.  In it, Danny (Finn Jones) and Colleen (Jessica Henwick) are walking down the street, enjoying coffee, when Danny begins to flash back to his time spent in K’un Lun, specifically, his battle with Davos (Sacha Dhawan) for the power of Shao Lao and the position as K’un Lun’s defender.

Marvel’s head of Television, Jeph Loeb says that Davos will be the character to watch this season.

“I think the thing people are going to get really excited about was that Sacha bombed onto the scene as Davos last year and wasn’t really sure what side he was on.  This year you’ll know exactly what side he’s on and as we revealed last night, somehow, some way he has a fist of his own.”

But perhaps the biggest treat for comic book fans is a glimpse of Danny wearing a part of his classic comic book costume.  Check it out for yourself below:

Yep, Finn Jones will don the classic comic book cowl.  And we know he already has the dragon emblem tattooed on his chest.  Could we possibly see the TV version of Danny Rand in the full fan-collar, slippers suit in the near future?

Hopefully not.

This might be a fun nod in the same way that Luke Cage was shown in a flashback wearing his metal tiara and billowing yellow shirt and Jessica Jones held up– and mocked– her Diamond costume, but at the end of the day, the Netflix Marvel shows are gritty and more realistic.  While Charlie Cox’s Daredevil looks good in his armored take of his comic book suit, some of the other, sillier costume elements just don’t work.  (Most of these characters were designed in the 1970s, after all.)  Even just the mask in Danny’s flashback looks a little goofy.

Jones was shown wearing a tracksuit at the end of ‘The Defenders’ that more closely resembles recent comic book depictions and that actually worked just fine.  These shows shouldn’t completely ignore their roots, but it’s a good idea to bring them into the real world a bit more.

‘Iron Fist’ will be back for its second season on Netflix on September 7.
