The first batch of official pics for Marvel and Netflix’s upcoming Iron Fist series has finally arrived, offering a new look at the Marvel characters and featuring the return of a very familiar face.
The new pics released via the good folks at IGN put the spotlight on the comic book series’ titular hero, Danny Rand, played by Game of Thrones’ Finn Jones. We also have pics of Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick) — and it looks like Danny is training in Colleen’s dojo (you can see her in the background, standing at the door) — Ward and Joy Meachum (Tom Pelphrey and Jessica Stroup) and
Nick Fury Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson), who'll also be training with Colleen (you guys may recall that she picked up Colleen's leaflet in the last episode of Luke Cage).
Oh, and from what I can see in the last image, it looks like Danny, Colleen and Claire (who are all wearing very fashionable washed-out black clothes) appear to be out for a little game of "I spy with my little eye."
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.
The 13-episode Netflix series, slated for a March 17 premiere, is the last piece of The Defenders puzzle that will unite Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Iron Fist against Sigourney Weaver’s mystery villain later in the year. Iron Fist also stars David Wenham as Harold Meachum and Lewis Tan as Zhou Cheng.
