How Netflix/Marvel’s ‘Iron Fist’ will deliver another hit…

The debut of ‘Luke Cage‘ was another big hit for the / partnership. So what can we actually expect from the next show ‘Iron Fist‘, due in 2017..?

If things had originally gone to plan, we’d have seen The Phantom Menace‘s hitting the screen as Danny Rand, in an Iron Fist movie directed by Kirk Wong (The Big Hit, Rock N’Roll Cop) as part of the first wave of Marvel adaptations following the success of Bryan Singer’s X-Men. But that wasn’t to be and after languishing for several years in development hell it looked as if the adventures of Danny Rand aka Iron Fist were never going to make the move.

But 2017 will see the character finally hitting the screen as part of the ongoing Netflix / Marvel collaboration, the fourth in the series of shows that will lead to the formation of the superhero team The Defenders as a mini-series featuring Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist working together.

Iron Fist, as fan know, focuses on Danny Rand (Finn Jones), a young man who returns to New York after being missing for 15 years, there to reclaim his family company. But when a threat emerges and starts tearing the city apart, Rand must choose between his family legacy and his duty as the holder of the ‘Iron Fist’. (from Game of Thrones) is not the only ‘Thrones‘ alumni- Jessica Henwick (who was given an earlier introduction to martial arts and choreography courtesy of Jude Poyer when she starred in the BBC’s Spirit Warriors) stars as Colleen Wing alongside David Wenham (from Van Helsing). Rosario Dawson and Carrie Ann Moss who reprise their roles from the earlier Netflix series.

The first teasers for the show promise plenty of action and adventure that stays true to the spirit of the original comic, whose character was very inspired by the martial arts movie boom of the early 1970s. With action director Brett Chan and his Hitz International team working on the show’s fight and stunt action we can expect some very impressive action. Brett and his team have been responsible for the fights on both seasons of Marco Polo,and Outcast with Nicholas Cage, and know how to deliver a very cool mix of Eastern and Western flavoured action. Brett just posted a compilation of behind the scenes and rehearsal footage from the show, which shows the cast training and working hard with the action team and gets us very excited about what we have to look forward to.
