The new Comic Con teaser for Netflix and Marvel’s highly-anticipated Iron Fist has dropped — and this part of The Defenders storyline promises to be as compelling to watch as Luke Cage and Daredevil.
The story sees billionaire Danny Rand (Finn Jones) return to New York City, trying to connect his past and his family legacy after spending years as a missing person.
Rand takes on the villains corrupting New York City with his kung-fu skills aided by his fiery Iron Fist.
We learn that our hero was saved by K’un-Lun, and then trained by Lei Kung. But Rand’s super-power lie in his hands of white hot metal.
Iron Fist debuted at the NY Comic Con yesterday, as Finn Jones (Danny Rand), Jessica Henwick (Colleen Wing), Jessica Stroup (Joy Meachum), Tom Pelphrey (Ward Meachum), David Wenham (Harold Meachum), Rosario Dawson (Claire Temple) and Executive Producer Scott Buck were on panel with Executive Producer Jeph Loeb, of Marvel’s Head of Television.
The Defenders’ planned cast also made a surprise appearance and the news of Golden Globe-winning and Oscar -and Emmy-nominated actress Sigourney Weaver coming on board made the attendees flood their socials with the good news. She also made an appearance.
The Con also saw ‘Punisher’ Jon Bernthal introduce Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page of Daredevil) to the fans, announcing that she will be joining him in Marvel’s The Punisher.
Some surprise guests were also there, including Erik LaRay Harvey cast as Willis Stryker, aka Diamondback, in the Netflix original series Marvel’s Luke Cage.
The end of this very cool Marvel dream team session reunited Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock/Daredevil) from Marvel’s Daredevil, Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones) from Marvel’s Jessica Jones, and Mike Colter (Luke Cage) from Marvel’s Luke Cage who then joined Finn Jones (Danny Rand) from Iron Fist.
We cannot wait for iron Fist and The Defenders to tie together all these great Netflix/Marvel shows.
