As Marvel's Iron Fist gears up for its debut, the social media accounts for the show are abuzz pushing out more content as the days progress. We've seen a motion poster for the show's titular character and a banner showcasing Colleen Wing — and now, we've gotten our an extended look at Joy Meachum, a supporting character in the classic Iron Fist lore.
In the motion poster, it shows a stationary Meachum (Jessica Stroup) in front of a background that includes her Rand Corporation key card.
It also rotates between a few roles she serves in: chief counsel, daughter, childhood friend, and sister.
The biggest piece of information revealed there is that Joy will serve as the chief counsel for Rand Corporation. This is an interesting change from the comic books as Jeryn Hogarth was served as Danny Rand's right hand man and legal counsel. In the Marvel Cinematic, we've already been introduced to a version of Hogarth as actress Carrie-Ann Moss plays a female version of the character that appeared in Jessica Jones and the second season of Daredevil.
While the show appears to be staying true to its comic book roots by keeping Harold Meachum (David Wenham) an antagonist, it's unclear the direction they're taking Ward (Tom Palphrey) and Joy Meachum. Although Ward was Harold's brother and Joy's uncle in the comics, Ward and Joy will be siblings in this particular show.
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.
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.
Marvel’s Iron Fist premieres March 17, 2017 exclusively on Netflix.
