Iron Fist Season 2 Trailer Delivers Danger From The Past
"What are you fighting for?"
The first season of Iron Fist was a major disappointment compared to the high standards of other Marvel Netflix shows, but hopes are high for Season 2. It hits the streaming service next month, and the first full trailer has been released.
Last month's first teaser hinted that Danny Rand would face a threat from his past, and this new trailer reveals who it is. It's another Iron Fist, known as Steel Serpent, who trained with Danny, and it looks like he will be a real threat to our hero. There's also plenty of action from Colleen Wing, and an appearance of Luke Cage's Misty Knight. Check it out above.
Iron Fist Season 2 stars Finn Jones as Danny, Jessica Henwick as Colleen, plus Simone Missick (Missy), Sacha Dhawan (Steel Serpent), and Alice Eve as the villainous Typhoid Mary. The whole season will be released on Netflix on September 7.
During the Iron Fist panel at last month's San Diego Comic-Con panel, Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb recognized that the second season of Iron Fist needed improvement. He stated that the makers would "up the game" in terms of the show's fight choreography, with Creed and Black Panther choreographer Clayton Barber on board for this season. In addition, the series has a new showrunner, with former Sleepy Hollow executive producer Raven Metzner taking over from Scott Buck.
In related news, the third season of Daredevil is also expected in 2018. Netflix is yet to confirm the release date, but Netflix VP of Original Content Cindy Holland previously told Deadline that Daredevil Season 3 would be a "return to form," without the logistical difficulties of Season 2. "The biggest issue was the timing of production and launching of The Defenders," she said. "We had to shut down all of the shows, so all the actors be available for The Defenders. There is no problem with this season, I think it's fantastic, it's a real return to form in my view."
