It all leads into the Netflix series The Defenders coming this September.
First we met Matt “Daredevil” Murdock (Charlie Cox) and Elektra Natchios (Elodie Yung) in Daredevil, then Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) and Luke “Power Man” Cage (Mike Colter) in the series Jessica Jones and Luke Cage. Next month we meet the last member of Marvel’s newest incarnation of the team from the classic comic book series The Defenders. Danny Rand, the Iron Fist (played by Finn Jones) in next month’s series Iron Fist.
For the most part the Disney-backed Marvel empire has maintained quality storytelling (excluding only a few standalone character sequels along the way) since Jon Favreau and Kevin Feige lit up the franchise with Iron Man in 2008. Efforts with the networks included good efforts with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter (and a new X-Men series Legion gaining steam), but the real serial success has been seen with the Netflix series.
So who is this last member of The Defenders? Netflix sheds some light on Iron Fist in these two previews:
Iron Fist co-stars include David Wenham, Rosario Dawson, and Jessica Henwick.
Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day the right way. Look for a full season of Iron Fist available only on Netflix, March 17, 2017.
