We finally got to meet the cast of Marvel’s Iron Fist, and they had a whole lot to say about Season 1 of Netflix’s new series.

We caught up with the stars of Marvel’s latest effort at New York Comic Con, just minutes after they wrapped the star-studded panel for the series. The cast talked to us about how Danny Rand is essentially a fish out of water returning to his old life, as he tries to reconnect with all the people he left behind. According to star Finn Jones, Danny is searching for someone to “heal his trauma” this season.

We also catch up with Rosario Dawson on how Claire Temple, the connecting thread across all of Netflix’s Marvel shows, fits into the world of Iron Fist (possibly falling into this orbit while trying to pick up some self-defense skills). The cast seems to be in good spirits, which is surprising considering they shot all night until 9 a.m. and then booked it to the convention … and starred in their own panel. Then sat down with us. These folks are troopers.

Iron Fist premieres in early 2017 on Netflix.
