Hot on the heels of the one-two punch premiere of Luke Cage this past weekend, Netflix has released the first official image and an announcement teaser for Marvel’s Iron Fist, revealing the premiere date for the upcoming superhero series.
Iron Fist stars Game of Thrones alum Finn Jones in the role of Danny Rand, aka Iron Fist, whom we see in full-on kung-fu action in the image below, and, lo and behold! He’s finally wearing shoes! (He was totally barefoot in the SDCC teaser trailer.) The 13-episode series will also introduce us to Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing, Tom Pelphrey as Ward Meachum, Jessica Stroup as Joy Meachum and David Wenham as Harold Meachum. The last piece of the superhero team-up puzzle that will be The Defenders, Iron Fist will begin streaming on March 17, 2017.
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.
