Next month, everybody will be kung-fu fighting in Netflix's new Iron Fist series starring Finn Jones as the kickass crusader Danny Rand, who is imbued with the mystical might of the Iron Fist.  This is an excellent opportunity to deliver a slightly different corner of the Marvel Universe that will eventually link up with the ongoing series, Marvel’s Daredevil, Marvel’s Jessica Jones and Marvel’s Luke Cage, to form the legendary superteam of The Defenders.  

The show's oriental flair, martial-arts mania and gallery of exotic new villains should provide us geeky, football-deprived folks with a much-needed diversion.  

Spring into this latest promo diving into the origins of the last Defender and tell us if Iron Fist will be on your prefered viewing list.

Also starring Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing, David Wenham as Harold Meachum, Jessica Stroup as Joy Meachum and Tom Pelphrey as Ward Meachum, Marvel’s Iron Fist strikes the Netflix airwaves with all 13 episodes on March 17, 2017.
