Iron Fist Season 2 Trailer: Danny Rand Is Back In Fist-Swinging Action

After a disappointing debut seasonMarvel's Iron Fist is looking to make up for its past mistakes and avoid the sophomore slump. If the final trailer for the series' upcoming second season is anything to go by, the series has a solid chance of achieving those goals. 

Netflix dropped the new trailer on Thursday, teasing an all-out, no-holds-barred brawl between Danny Rand (Finn Jones) and his ex-best friend Davos (Sacha Dhawan). 

In one scene in trailer, the pair swing their glowing fists at one another, Davos' bright red knuckles nearly connecting with Danny's shins as the martial arts master flips through the air. But, as the footage proves, the rivalry between Danny and Davos runs deeper than simple superficial similarities like their light-emitting hands and their shared prowess for close-quarters combat. 

When the jealous Davos returns to New York City and discovers that his home of K'un-Lun has completely disappeared, he makes it clear that he doesn't just want to overpower Danny, he also wants to exact punishment while he avenges his lost city.   

"You'll give me what's mine, brother," Davos warns Danny. "You will suffer." 

Elsewhere in season 2, Danny and his partner Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick) will work to keep the streets of New York as safe as possible, intercepting conflicting gangs in attempts to establish peace. Misty Knight (Simone Missick) soon lends a helping hand, and together, the trio learn that the criminal circuit swirling throughout the city reaches much further and runs far deeper than they originally thought.  

The first season of Iron Fist crashed and burned with critics, who called it "a dud" that severely lacked the certain spark characteristic of Marvel television series, a "staggering disappointment," and "easily the worst thing to come out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far." Based on this new trailer, as well as the other teases Netflix rolled out earlier this year, it seems as though the second season of Iron Fist has a chance of greatly improving on the first. It won't be so much a return to form as it is an arrival to form, as the new episodes explore Danny's past and, as ScreenRant's Thomas Bacon speculates, perhaps even retcon his origin story to offer up something totally fresh. 

Whatever happens in Marvel's Iron Fist season 2, it's sure to be thrilling. Fans can queue up the new collection of episodes on Netflix on September 7.
