The latest trailer for the final Defender has arrived, hyping its March 17 release on Netflix, and it is packed with new details and references to the Marvel Universe.
Iron Fist comes home in the latest video, showing his return to Rand Industries as well as hinting at his journey to K’un-Lun and back.
While the video shows more of Jessica Henwick’s role as Colleen Wing while showing that Daredevil characters Madame Gao and Claire Temple will also take part in the series, a succession of quick shots show some intriguing details about the mystical city where Danny Rand trains.
We even catch a quick shot of Finn Jones in robes that resemble the classic Iron Fist costume, complete with a bright yellow-and-green color scheme.
It seems doubtful that the Iron Fist will adopt that garish costume when he takes to the streets, defending the helpless, because what works on the comic page doesn’t always work on screen.
But, similar to Luke Cage’s origin scene in his own Netflix series, the creators of Iron Fist seem to be working in an organic way to pay homage to the threads without being beholden to it.
The only thing that’s missing is the bandana mask and the ridiculous collar but maybe that’s a good thing.
Iron Fist premieres on Netflix on March 17. The Defenders will release later in 2017.
Marvel’s Iron Fist developed by Scott Buck. The Netflix series stars Finn Jones as Danny Rand, a martial arts expert with the ability to call upon the power of the Iron Fist. The cast also includes Jessica Henwick, David Wenham, Jessica Stroup, Tom Pelphrey, and Rosario Dawson.
Iron Fist was created by Roy Thomas and Gil Kane for Marvel Comics. Iron Fist made his first appearance in Marvel Premiere #15 in 1974. Though he has headlined his own series, he is best known for being Luke Cage's partner in the Heroes for Hire.
