And in anticipation of the Final Defender’s arrival to New York City, Marvel is getting fans acquainted with his allies from the show.
Henwick plays Colleen Wing in the series, Danny Rand’s partner in asskicking and potential love interest.
We first caught wind of her appearance in Luke Cage, when Rosario Dawson’s Claire Temple finds her phone number on a flier for martial arts training.
The series has revealed footage of Henwick in a few fight scenes, including an extended sequence featuring a cage fight between Wing and two other dudes during which she handily feeds them their own teeth.
Speaking about the role, Henwick previously said to Collider “From the comic books, I definitely wanted to pull out that sort of very dry humor that she has, and that no bullsh*t New Yorker demeanor.”
Fans will be able to see just how serious Henwick’s portrayal of Colleen Wing is when every episode of Iron Fist hits Netflix on March 17.
Fifteen years after being presumed dead in a plane crash, Danny Rand (Finn Jones) mysteriously returns to New York City determined to reclaim his birthright and family company. However, when a long-destined enemy rises in New York, this living weapon is forced to choose between his family’s legacy and his duties as the Iron Fist.
Marvel’s Iron Fist was 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.
