Early peeks have been plentiful at this year’s New York City Comic Con and included in the sexy new footage being unfurled at NYCC is a glance at an upcoming Marvel small screen property. Of course, we’ve saved you the trouble of arranging air travel and/or a time machine by plunking this fresh arrival at the top of the page.
Marvel’s Iron Fist now comes equipped with a teaser trailer that has an appropriate balance of intrigue and action in selling the tale of Danny Rand. This 87-second early look will probably be a touch confusing with those unfamiliar with Iron Fist, but it’s not like Jessica Jones or Luke Cage were derailed by having Netflix viewers take the steps to learn who the characters are. Here’s the bluffer’s guide from Marvel on what Iron Fist has in store:
Fifteen years after being presumed dead in a plane crash, Danny Rand (Finn Jones) mysteriously returns to New York City determined to reclaim his birthright and family company. However, when a long-destined enemy rises in New York, this living weapon is forced to choose between his family’s legacy and his duties as the Iron Fist.
We also would have watched Finn Jones play an shoe designer at Iron Fist, but this seems like a better use of the Game of Thrones alum. No word on if he’ll be contributing to the soundtrack.
The first season of Iron Fist is set to debut on March 17, 2017 with a grand total of 13 episodes you’ll probably watch in one big sitting. Them’s the Netflix rules.
