Fans sure have been anxious to see these four characters together on-screen, but from the looks of the trailer, the characters themselves aren’t too excited to spend time with one another. The new trailer begins with a little bit of humor, as our four heroes are dining together at the Royal Dragon Chinese restaurant after what we can assume was a tense physical battle.
Some weren’t too happy with the first season of Iron Fist, but Danny Rand, played by Finn Jones, gets a couple of worthwhile moments in the trailer. First off, we get to see a brief glimpse of him fighting alongside Luke Cage, played by Mike Colter. Anybody who is a fan of the two Heroes for Hire partners in the Marvel comics series is certainly going to get a kick out of it. In addition, Danny gets to use his Iron Fist to completely destroy a sword wielded by Elektra (Elodie Yung).
Krysten Ritter’s Jessica Jones is still just as witty and sarcastic as she ever was in the latest trailer, at one point asking herself if she is the only person among the four of them who doesn’t know karate. Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock/Daredevil once again puts on the red suit, after what was a very interesting cliffhanger at the end of Daredevil season 2. If there is any reason for him to wear the costume again, it’s to join forces with these other three heroes. According to a recent interview in Playboy can also expect to see the characters change after the events of this miniseries.
