Get ready to meet the final Defender. And his big glowy fist.
The first official trailer for Iron Fist, the final Marvel Netflix series before The Defenders, is here.
Check it out below.
Iron Fist follows Danny Rand (not Oliver Queen), who returns to New York City after being presumed dead for 15 years (still not Oliver Queen), and is ready to reclaim his deceased father’s business (yeah, maybe actually Oliver Queen).
While absent, Rand has mastered martial arts and has gained the ability of the Iron Fist, which allows him to channel all of his chi into his hand.
With his new abilities and aid of old and new friends (including Defenders ally Claire Temple), Rand must choose between his family’s legacy, and his new responsibilities as Iron Fist.
Not going to lie, Danny Rand’s origin story looks largely like a synthesis of other established heroes (looking at you Arrow, and Doctor Strange), BUT we are still pumped for Iron Fist.
Based off the trailer, the series sports a tone more similar to an MCU film than the darker Daredevil or Jessica Jones, has sweet action, and from the sound of it, a kick’n soundtrack.
We’re certainly ready for The Defenders, but we’re excited to meet Danny first.
Iron Fist hits Netflix on March 17.
