When Marvel Studios and Netflix first announced a TV partnership set within Marvel’s cinematic universe, it seemed like a bold plan. Three years and four seasons later, the Marvel universe is thriving on Netflix, with the penultimate project in that initial plan — Iron Fist — nearing its premiere date. The show comes on the heels of three successful series — Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage — and will be followed by the team-up miniseries The Defenders, which will see the heroes band together to battle a greater threat.
Iron Fist features Game of Thrones actor Finn Jones as Danny Rand, a billionaire who returns home to New York City after disappearing years earlier. Armed with a newfound expertise in mystical martial arts and Buddhist philosophy, Danny finds himself fighting with both the criminal element looking to take over the city and his own difficulty in reconnecting with the life he left behind.
Iron Fist is scheduled to premiere March 17, 2017, on Netflix. Here’s everything we know about the series so far.
Don’t mess with Colleen Wing
One of the most-anticipated supporting cast members joining Marvel’s small-screen universe in Iron Fist is Colleen Wing, the powerful martial artist who’s teamed up with Danny Rand countless times in the character’s comic-book adventures. Played by Jessica Henwick in the upcoming live-action series, Colleen gets the spotlight in a clip released February 9 by Netflix.
Along with showcasing Colleen Wing’s formidable fighting skills, the Iron Fist clip also features the character in a variation of her signature white suit — an added bonus for fans of the comic-book character that inspired Henwick’s role in the series.
