Cast and crew from Netflix's Iron Fist took center stage earlier today at San Diego Comic Con and with the presentation came the first look at the second season of the show.
The trailer can be seen in it's entirety above.
Danny Rand (Finn Jones) and Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick) last appeared in season two of Luke Cage, to a better fan response than Iron Fist season one. According to Luke Cage showrunner Cheo Coker, he wasn't phased by the response to the first season of Iron Fist when writing Luke Cage.
“It doesn’t bother me that people have criticized Iron Fist on his series and on The Defenders,” Coker said. “I’m arrogant enough to think that Iron Fist appearing on our show has a different sensibility. And so, it’s like—that’s the thing—I’m not dissuaded by that because Iron Fist, I think, is a dope character. And I think when you see Iron Fist within the realm of Luke Cage, and the way that we do things, I think—hopefully—that people are going to come to appreciate the character differently, and hopefully that swagger that he’ll get from appearing in the Luke Cage universe will carry over into [Iron Fist Season 2].”
Actress Alice Eve, who's role as Typhoid Mary was also released at the Iron Fist panel, recently expressed her excitement in being able to be a part of the show.
“Unfortunately for me, I can’t tell you anything, although I can tell you my feelings about the role, which are genuine excitement,” Eve said. “I truly loved my character and had a great working experience with Jeph Loeb at the studio and learned a lot in that process, actually, even though we filmed it during a grueling New York winter, which I’m sure all of the cast would attest to. It was kind of a special experience.”
Along with the trailer came an official synopsis of the show and it's as follows.
