After what was clearly a redeeming and restructured second season that gave the main character new life. That life will now be short lived as Marvel has pulled the plug on Iron Fist on Netflix.
Finn Jones gave what many said was refreshing look at Danny Rand during the 1st season. But today a joint statement released by both Marvel and Netflix, “Marvel’s Iron Fist will not return for a third season on Netflix”…“Everyone at Marvel Television and Netflix is proud of the series and grateful for all of the hard work from our incredible cast, crew and showrunners,” Marvel and Netflix added. “We’re thankful to the fans who have watched these two seasons, and for the partnership we’ve shared on this series. While the series on Netflix has ended, the immortal Iron Fist will live on.”
This may be possible with all of the many teases given throughout the series. (Potential spoilers below) Misty Knight (Simone Missick) told Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick) that she may need her help in Harlem dealing with Luke Cage (Mike Colter).
Also we saw the reunion of the Heroes For Hire (Iron Fist and Luke Cage) in the 2nd season of Luke Cage so there are many possibilities.
Last season’s Iron Fist introduced us to Davos (Sachs Dhawan) the man who many know as the Steel Serpent. He is the friend who will soon turn for to Danny Rand. At this year’s San Diego Comic Con we were teased with some footage but also the information that Davos would be developing new abilities as well as a glowing fist of his own.
On the Iron Fist Twitter account we were teased once again by a brief clip showing Davos in action but his fist glowing red.
It seems that the “controversy” and negative criticism isn’t derailing the Marvel’s street level heroes train anytime soon. Netflix has officially renewed Iron Fist for a second season as news is coming out of Comic-con in San Diego.
Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb made the announcement at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday. In addition, Loeb hinted that Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick) would team up with NYPD detective Misty Knight (Simone Missick), who first appeared in Season 1 of “Luke Cage.” The characters previously partnered together in the Marvel comic books.
“Iron Fist” stars “Game of Thrones” alum Finn Jones as Danny Rand, the heir to the multi-billion dollar Rand Corp. who returns to New York after training for years in the mysterious city of K’un-Lun. Through his training, he was chosen to be the living weapon known as the Iron Fist, which allows him to channel his chi energy into his fists.
In addition to Jones and Henwick, the series also starred Rosario Dawson, who has appeared as nurse Claire Temple in all of the Marvel-Netflix shows to date. Season 1 also starred Jessica Stroup, Tom Pelphrey, David Wenham, and Wai Ching Ho.
“Iron Fist” was the fourth Marvel-Netflix series to be released. The show was preceded by “Daredevil,” “Jessica Jones,” and “Luke Cage.” All four main characters will then team up for “The Defenders” event series, which will debut on Netflix on Aug. 18. In addition, Netflix has ordered a spinoff based on “The Punisher,” with Jon Bernthal reprising the title role, which he originated in Season 2 of “Daredevil.”
It doesn’t seem to be slowing down or stopping for unbreakable Power Man more affectionately known as Luke Cage.
Now first this summer Luke will join forces with Matt Murdock, Jessica Jones and Danny Rand in Marvel’s The Defenders on Netflix and now production has begun on Season 2 of the highly popular series.
In the usual Marvel fashion we have no idea what’s going to happen in season two, but star Mike Colter has said it may deal with Luke’s public identity as the bulletproof hero of Harlem. And there has to be some effect from what happens in The Defenders.
Also expected to return are Simone Missick as Misty Knight, Theo Rossi as Shades and Alfre Woodard as Mariah Dillard.
Marvel’s Netflix series have a full slate planned for the next year. The Defenders premieres Aug. 18 followed by The Punisher later this year. Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage will debut new seasons in 2018.
With having seen season 1 and now rolling into Marvel’s The Defenders are you excited for season 2? What potential Marvel villian would you like to see? Who would you like to see portray them?
Let the official countdown commence. We now have a release date for the arrival of Marvel’s newest ensemble of heroes.
The Defenders which brings together Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist will hit Netflix on August 18th 2017. A teaser clip which shows the foursome in an elevator for Midland Circle Security. When Jessica Jones realizes that they are being watched she smashesaid the camera and the timestamp stops at 08:18:20:17 then the video ends.
Well it seems as if every one is not on board with the final defender making his arrival. The criticism for Marvel’s previous Netflix shows Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage has been minimal at best. However that has all changed with the early reviews for the upcoming Iron Fist series.
In an interview with Metro, star Finn Jones who plays the title character, weighs in on those reviews and made it clear that it’s a series he believes comic book fans will love.
“Well I think there’s multiple factors. What I will say is these shows are not made for critics, they are first and foremost made for the fans. I also think some of the reviews we saw were seeing the show through a very specific lens, and I think when the fans of the Marvel Netflix world and fans of the comic books view the show through the lens of just wanting to enjoy a superhero show, then they will really enjoy what they see. I think it’s a fantastic show which is really fun and I think it stands up there with the other Defenders’ shows without a doubt.”
It’s important to note that critics only saw the first six episodes of Iron Fist and that the next seven could tie things together in a way which make the show one of Marvel’s best; right now, it’s as if people have seen half of a film and already written their reviews! There’s no getting around the fact that most didn’t like what they saw in those six epiosode, though it’s not like it’s been really torn apart.
The anticipation continues to grow. First there was just a teaser now we have a full on trailer for the upcoming “Iron Fist” Netflix series.
The series that follows Danny Rand as he’s been gone for years after surviving a plane crash that took his parents from him Presumed dead, Rand trains in martial arts in the otherworldly realm of K’un-Lun, eventually returning to New York to take his rightful place at Rand Enterprises. While back at the company his father built, Rand must root out corruption within.
That corruption appears to include a shadowy presence in the form of Madame Gao (Wai Ching Ho), who first appeared in the Marvel/Netflix universe as a foe to Daredevil. In “Daredevil’s” first season, Madame Gao showcased supernatural martial-arts ability in a brief encounter against Daredevil. In the “Iron Fist” trailer, she whispers from the dark that New York is no place for Danny Rand. A showdown between her and Iron Fist seems imminent.
The trailer for the final DEFENDER has arrived and it has surpassed expectations.
Today at New York Comic Con the trailer for Marvel’s Iron Fist starring Finn Jones (Game Of Thrones) as Danny Rand/Iron Fist dropped and it brought the expectation level very high.
