A trailer for the upcoming Marvel Netflix show Iron Fist arrived yesterday, and now the first clip has been released. It shows Jessica Henwick in action as the deadly Colleen Wing–check it out below:
Iron Fist stars Finn Jones (Game of Thrones) as the highly skilled Daniel Rand, a martial arts master with supernatural abilities. It also stars David Wenham, Jessica Stroup, and Tom Pelphrey. In addition, Carrie-Anne Moss and Rosario Dawson are set to reprise their roles as Jeri Hogarth and Claire Temple from Jessica Jones and Daredevil.
In a recent interview with Collider, Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb explained how Iron Fist would differ from the studio’s previous Netflix shows. “It was always our intent when we set out to tell each of the Netflix stories that they’re part of a piece, but at the same token, you should be able to watch each of them individually,” he said. “Daredevil is not like Jessica Jones, which is not like Luke [Cage], which should not be like Danny.
“We’re dealing with a character who is younger than the rest of the cast and who also has a certain kind of optimism and hope about him that brings a certain thing to it. Don’t make any mistake about it, this is Marvel’s foray into martial arts films, and when he opens up a can of whoop-ass, people are going to be super-super excited by what’s happening.”
Last month, a list of episodes titles was revealed, all of which have been heavily influenced by kung-fu movies.
The events of Iron Fist will tie into The Defenders, the superhero team-up show that will also feature Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage. The first season is expected in late 2017–click here to see official images.
Iron Fist Season 1 hits Netflix in its entirety on March 17, 2017. Check out GameSpot’s breakdown of the trailer here.
