The Marvel Netflix series have been a mixed bag.
Season 1 of Marvel's Iron Fist debuts Friday, March 17 at 12:01 a.m. PST exclusively on Netflix. The easy answer is the 13th and final episode, but I'm betting it's the episode directed by The RZA, famous Wu-Tang Clan leader and director of the unrelated The Man with the Iron Fists.
In the clip, we're introduced to Danny Rand, played by Game of Thrones veteran Finn Jones. If you've liked any of the other Marvel/Netflix titles you'll be excited for Iron Fist. If you remember, in Christopher Nolan's Batman prequel, Bruce Wayne too embarks on a similar journey of self-discovery and martial arts training. For those who don't know, the Defender consist of Jessica Jones, Matt Murdock, Luke Cage, and Danny Rand.
So, who is Iron Fist?
Marvel's Defenders are one step closer to being complete. While Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage emphasize the grittiness of their street-level heroes, Iron Fist appears to be taking a balanced and lighter approach.
At the time, it was just a nod to the shared universe Daredevil inhabited. Will Sigourney Weaver's villain show up? With their television shows, the antagonists are more driven by power and control. We've seen little lost boys gain superpowers and take charge of their family corporations on screen a lot recently.
Series star Finn Jones recently spoke on which version of the costume we'll see in the show, but he had a surprising, and vague, answer.
In the pages of Marvel Comics, Iron Fist/Danny Rand, who has the ability to channel energy into his fists to create a destructive force, is known for his yellow mask and green and yellow suit.
