With Daredevil out of action, it's up to the Immortal Iron Fist to protect the naked streets of Manhattan. But don't worry, Danny Rand (Finn Jones) won't be going up against bad guys alone in Iron Fist Season 2.
At his side will be Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick), Misty Knight (Simone Missick), and a new face (or three), none other than Typhoid Mary (Alice Eve), who might just be what Elektra was to Matt Murdock. Watch out for Ms. Mary, though, because she is often portrayed as the nemesis of Daredevil and Spider-Man in the comics.
Going up against our heroes are Joy Meachum (Jessica Stroup) and Danny's old buddy from K'un-Lun, Davos (Sacha Dhawan). The two reached a sort of partnership at the end of Season 1, and now they're out to destroy the Iron Fist and possibly take his powers.
You can get a good look at all of these characters in brand-new Season 2 production stills, courtesy of Netflix. Scrutinizing them might just give up some hints of juicy plot details.
For instance, what's in that manila envelope Tyhpoid Mary just handed to Danny? Then, in the second photo, she's smiling and hanging out with Danny and Colleen. Just what sort of association does she have with them?
In a lot of ways, Danny is still a child at heart, and it falls on Colleen's shoulders to keep his temper (and glowing fist) in check.
We know that Davos is angry at Danny for two reasons: 1) Danny became the Iron Fist and instead of guarding K'un-Lun, he left his post and 2) He's insanely jealous that Danny got the power of the Iron Fist and he didn't. In the latest trailer, we saw Davos with a strange tattoo on his back and a glowing fist of his own. Will he steal his old friend's abilities or harness a more malevolent power?
In the photo below, you can see them standing on a rooftop, clearly not fighting, and maybe even BBQing. Perhaps they'll take a break from their feud to have a beer, grill up some dogs and burgers, and relive the good old days.
You can never have too much of the Daughters of the Dragon!
