Finally! It’s been a long wait, but with Iron Fist set to release next month on Netflix, we finally have our first full trailer of the latest Marvel show on Netflix. I suppose it’s no surprise that it’s a good one. All these Marvel Netflix shows have good trailers.
For those unaware of who Danny Rand (aka Iron Fist) is, the trailer gives you the setup. At the age of ten he was the lone survivor of a plane crash which killed his parents. He returns to New York City after fifteen years to assume control of his family’s company, to the chagrin of those who have run the company since his disappearance. He spent those missing years in the city of K’un-Lun, where he learned martial arts and obtained the power of the Iron Fist. Now he will use his powers to fight the crime spreading throughout his company and New York City.
Besides Rand himself, the trailer also provides a look at Colleen Wing (a friend and ally of Rand), Harold Meachum (who now leads Rand’s company), and his children Joy and Ward, as well as the return of Madame Gao and the awesome Claire Temple. Because to not include Claire in a Marvel Netflix show at this point would be plain stupid.
Watch the trailer below:
Needless to say (but yes, I’m saying it anyway), Iron Fist has a lot to live up to. It succeeds three other awesome Marvel Netflix shows. With those expectations also comes the unfair extra burden to be something different. By the time Luke Cage rolled around some fans started growing sick of the Netflix formula. Here’s hoping Iron Fist can give us something a little bit different like Jessica Jones did. I think the potential is there.
If for no other reason than Danny Rand is a frigging kajillionaire. Dude can at least class the Defenders up.
Iron Fist releases on Netflix this March 17. It stars Game of Thrones alumni Finn Jones (he deserves better than that show’s terrible version of Loras Tyrell), Jessica Henwick, David Wenham, Jessica Stroup, Tom Pelphrey, and the amazing Rosario Dawson.
