Hot on the heels (or should we say "fists"?) of Danny Rand's redeeming appearance on Netflix's Luke Cage, the streaming giant seems to have more in store to tempt Iron Fist series skeptics back to the fold. One sure pleaser should be the introduction of the classic Iron Fist mask, completely absent from the first season, but well on display in the flashbacks that make up most of the trailer that dropped today.
Seeing as one of the criticisms the show faced was that Finn Jones' character, as written, was none too believable as the powerful protector of K'un-Lun, here's hoping the cool boost Rand got from being Luke Cage's sidekick for a bit, plus looking the part and showing us more backstory, will help propel the Fist to greater heights in Season 2, which the trailer also reveals will debut on September 7.
The trailer features Finn Jones as Rand and Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing strolling through NYC, till Rand starts flashing back on a bloody battle from his past.
The fight appears to be between Rand and his fellow disciple Davos, played by Sacha Dhawan.
So... do you still like him? How bout the haircut? Is the haircut working? (We see that they've chosen to stick with his general look from the Luke Cage cameo, rather than reverting to the Season 1 look, which might be a good way to signal a reboot.) Anyway, are you ready to give the Iron Fist another chance to show you he's worthy of the power of Shao Lao? We're down.
