First full trailer for Iron Fist unleashed
At long last, the final member of the Defenders universe has arrived.
Netflix released the first full trailer for Iron Fist, the upcoming series starring Finn Jones (Game of Thrones) as the iconic Marvel character Danny Rand.
Here's the official synopsis: "Returning to New York City after being missing for years, Daniel Rand fights against the criminal element corrupting New York City with his incredible kung-fu mastery and ability to summon the awesome power of the fiery Iron Fist."
On the surface, it would seem that Rand has a lot in common with Christopher Nolan's take on Bruce Wayne (both are heirs to a large corporation and both go missing for years while they learn martial arts). However, as the trailer reveals, Iron Fist will be more of a street-level superhero series with a lot of ties to the other Defenders worlds (those of Daredevil, Luke Cage, and Jessica Jones).
Former Dexter producer Scott Buck will serve as showrunner, while Jessica Jones writer Scott Reynolds will also pitch in. The cast includes Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple, Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing, Carrie-Anne Moss as Jeri Hogarth, Jessica Stroup as Joy Meachum, and David Wenham as Harold Meachum.
The series debuts in March on Netflix. Check out what we can expect from the action-packed show.
