It’s not long now until we get to see Marvel and Netflix’s introduction of “the final defender.” The story of Danny Rand is coming to our televisions in just a matter of days, and by the look of today’s trailer, that isn’t soon enough. Iron Fist looks legit.
“The Final Defender Arrives”
One of the focal points at the heart of today’s Iron Fist trailer is the feeling of belonging within this ongoing narrative. This story belongs in the universe already established by Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage. Daredevil‘s background puppetmaster, Madame Gao, appears to have a prevalent role here. And, as you could have guessed, Rosario Dawson’s Claire Temple appears to be a core character as well. Simone Missick’s Misty Knight is apparently set to appear in at least one episode as well.
The main villain of the show seems to be Danny Rand’s father’s former partner. Once the family perished in the plane wreck and Danny went missing, his father’s partner took over the company. And with Madame Gao backing him, he doesn’t seem happy that Danny has showed back up to insert himself back into the mix.
The action, as you can expect from Netflix’s Marvel crop, looks spectacular. It’ll be interesting to see have far they let Danny’s mystical Iron Fist powers bloom within the series. Iron Fist premieres on Netflix March 17th. The final defender is on his way.
