The Colleen Wing-Misty Knight team-up continues in first images from Iron Fist Season 2

With less than two months until Iron Fist returns to Netflix, the streaming service has released the first high-res images from the upcoming sophomore season.

Right off the bat, you'll notice that the badass pairing of Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick) and Misty Knight (Simone Missick) from the second season of Luke Cage will continue to be a thing, and you'll never hear any complaints about it from us. You can never have too much of the Daughters of the Dragon! Whether or not Mike Colter's Power Man is set to show up for some more Hero for Hire action, we don't have any confirmation on that front just yet. 

Looking at the images, you'll also see that Danny's former best friend from K'un-Lun, Davos (Sacha Dhawan) is up to some hijinks with Joy Meachum (Jessica Stroup). Both decided at the end of last season that young Rand (Finn Jones) was their enemy, albeit for different reasons. Joy felt that Danny murdered her father Howard (David Wenham), while Davos considered him a traitor to the people of K'un-Lun and the title of Iron Fist. 

Two days after the teaser trailer dropped online, the official Iron Fist Twitter account posted a photo of a shopfront with the neon words "The City's Not For Burning," flanked by two yellow tiger heads. The caption says "Strong medicine."

Given the tiger motif, some fans have speculated that this signals the arrival of the Golden Tiger Gang, a criminal group from the comics, which was led by Chaka Khan. Like Iron Fist, they used martial arts, but for illegal activities. They once tried to seize power in New York after the collapse of the Maggia and while that particular crime syndicate hasn't been introduced to the Netflix MCU yet, the absense of Kingpin and Daredevil in Manhattan could be used as an explanation for the group's sudden presence. 

In the window of the Asian medicine shop, you can also make out the dragon shape, which is branded onto Danny Rand's chest. The sign of Shou-Lao the Undying is the sign of the Immortal Iron Fist, but was adopted by Madame Gao (a member of the Hand) to be used as the logo for her heroin packets. 

The second season of Iron Fist punches its way onto Netflix September 7.

In the meantime, continue on to the gallery below and see what you can glean about the plot of Season 2.
