All caught up on Daredevil and Jessica Jones and Luke Cage? Ready for the next building block of Netflix’s Marvel universe? Netflix has just unveiled the first proper trailer for Iron Fist, starring Finn Jones as Danny Rand. The trailer reveals a bit of his origin story and also the challenges he faces. He was presumed dead but now returns home to take over the business.
In addition to Jones as Danny, Iron Fist stars David Wenham as Harold Meachum, the former business partner of Danny’s late parents; Jessica Stroup and Tom Pelphrey as Harold’s children Joy and Ward Meachum, who have known Danny since childhood; and Jessica Henwick plays Colleen Wing, an ally of Danny’s who runs a martial arts dojo. Iron Fist will also bring back a few familiar faces from other Netflix Marvel series, namely Carrie-Anne Moss as Jeri Hogarth from Jessica Jones and Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple.
The leads of all four shows are expected to team up for The Defenders sometime next year, though it’s looking increasingly possible that The Punisher will slip in somewhere between Iron Fist and The Defenders.
Iron Fist arrives March 17, 2017.
