Iron Fist will be the final Defender series and has had a trailer dropped for it showing off a bunch of characters and some intense looking Kung Fu moves. Since Iron Fist is another one of those superheroes that I think most people will have to Google. I’ll quickly do a brief history for you.
Danny Rand and his wealthy mother and father are killed on a mountain expedition leaving Danny to be taken in by the mystic warriors of K’un-Lun. There he is granted the powers of the Iron Fist; a mystic, reincarnated warrior who can summon great power into his fists. Danny is schooled in martial arts and returns to New York to become a superhero and to run his families company, Rand Industries.
In the comics he eventually teams up with Luke Cage to open Heroes for Hire. Like the Avengers, but with street-level superheroes and for hire. This definitely seems to be tying into the upcoming Defenders series. Heroes for Hire fans will be pleased to see that Misty Knight and Colleen Wing will make an appearance and Colleen’s sword looks pretty cool. Danny has been an Avenger with Luke as well, and is set get his own solo series called Iron Fists as he trains a new warrior.
So that’s a little summary of who Iron Fist is. For more history check out the brief history of Iron Fist I wrote a while back. Game of Thrones fans will recognise Finn Jones as Loras Tyrell and that’s as much as I’m going to say about that, just in case you aren’t up to date on the show.
So far it looks like the show will be pretty exciting, but we’ll just have to wait until March the 17th next year to find out how it stacks in comparison to the rest of Marvel’s Netflix series’.
