Iron Fist: first set of images

We’ve had a lot of new Marvel content flying out from Netflix this year and 2017 isn’t going to be any different. With Jessica Jones, Dare Devil and Luke Cage all having shows which premiered in 2016, it’s time to bring the fourth Defender on board. Iron Fist completes the foursome of new superheros who are defending (see what they did there??) New York. Iron Fist’s alter ego is Daniel Rand and played by Finn Jones of Game of Thrones fame. Now that’s not a bad career already, Game of Thrones then jumping into two Marvel shows once they all combine in 2017’s The Defenders.

About a month ago we were treated to a pretty decent trailer and now the first images have been released in anticipation of the show’s start in March. Not too much to see, besides what looks like a few shots of Rand training to become Iron Fist. He is a man who has lost his parents and who, after plunging his fist into a brazier containing the molten heart of a dragon, gains some magical powers. Standard stuff at your local karate centre. After a few years away, he returns to New York in order to fight crime in the city with his new found powers.

Exciting stuff! What do you think? Looking forward to it or is it overkill on Marvel? And just in case you’ve not seen it, I’ve thrown in the trailer at the bottom.
