CBTVB: Marvel’s Iron Fist to Hit Netflix on March 17, 2017!!

By Muuka Muyumba

Today, Marvel debuted a new look at Finn Jones (Game of Thrones) in action as a Iron Fist, and revealed the upcoming release date for the next Defenders series. Marvel’s Iron Fist will be the last Defender solo series to premiere ahead of the ultimate team up in the Defenders, which hits the streaming service in the latter half of 2017.


We are less than a week into the premiere of Marvel’s Luke Cage on Netflix (a premiere that apparently broke the streaming services for a few hours), and now set for the anticipation of New York Comic Con this week. Marvel is tweaking this anticipation with new teases of Danny Rand in action and the announcement of the a release date. In previous occasions when Marvel has been set to debut something at NYCC, they have announced dates and introduced the full cast, which is what we will see this weekend with Iron Fist.

In Iron Fist, young Danny Rand and his family set out to discover the wonders of a rumored Shangri-la, only to have his parents killed on the trip. Danny survives the accident and is raised by the monks of K’un-Lun, and eventually he is bestowed with incredible martial arts skills and a mystical mastery of his chi known as the Iron Fist. The series will pick up when Danny has returned to New York on a quest to find how caused the accident that killed his parents. We have already seen hints to the mysterious K’un-Lun in Marvel’s Daredevil season 1 as Madame Gao (Wai Ching Ho) referred to her homeland being much further away than China.

Iron Fist stars Jones, along with Game of Thrones co-star Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing, Tom Pelphry as Ward Meachum, Jessica Stroup as Joy Meachum, David Wenham as Harold Meachum, Lewis Tan as Zhou Cheng, as well as possible cameos by Simone Missick as Misty Knight, and Mike Colter as Luke Cage. In the comics, Cage and Rand are often teamed up as ‘Heroes for Hire’, but we’ll probably see a team up in the Defenders series first.

Scott Buck is the showrunner and Scott Reynolds helped write the series.

Iron Fist hits the streaming services on March 17, 2017.
