The Hand, an ancient and powerful ninja clan that had a prominent role in Season 2 of Marvel's Daredevil, was mentioned in the fourth and final Iron Fist clip shown at New York Comic Con today.
The clip begins with Danny chained up to a hospital bed. He's been sedated, so when Harold Meachum walks in and starts talking to him, their conversation has a dream-like quality to it. A sleepy-Danny says he thought Harold was dead; Harold says he thought Danny was dead. Danny mentions that they have that in common. Harold says he knows Danny was taken in by the order of the "Crane Mother," and is curious where the monastery is. Danny answers, "K'un-Lun," and he explains that he probably never should have left. He confesses to training as a warrior and how combat brought him focus. Harold presses him to find out more, and Danny tells him of how he became a warrior of the Iron Fist, in a long line of them, and it is his mission to destroy The Hand. "I'm the only one who can do it," Danny says. Before departing, Harold, trying to sound sincere, promises to take care of everything and tells Danny to go back to sleep.
In Marvel’s Iron Fist, Danny Rand returns to New York City after being missing for years, trying to reconnect with his past and his family legacy. He fights against the criminal element corrupting his world around him with his incredible kung-fu mastery and ability to summon the awesome power of the fiery Iron Fist.
The cast also features Finn Jones (“Game of Thrones”) as Daniel Rand/Iron Fist, Jessica Henwick (“Game of Thrones,” “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”) as Colleen Wing, David Wenham as Harold Meachum, Jessica Stroup (“The Following”) as Joy Meachum, and Tom Pelphrey (“Banshee”) as Ward Meachum, as well as a guest appearance from Carrie-Anne Moss (“The Matrix”) reprising her Jessica Jones role as lawyer Jeri Hogarth
