Netflix has released a video featuring new footage from Marvel’s Iron Fist. The featurette, called I Am Danny Rand, also features an interview with Finn Jones who plays Rand – aka Iron Fist – discussing the character.
It explores Danny Rand’s return to New York after 15 years away, and shows us where he’s been and what he’s been up to in that time. After his plane crashed, killing his parents, he holed up in a remote monastery, where Danny learned to harness the power of the Iron Fist.
When he returns to New York, Rand makes a beeline for his father’s former company offices. He finds his childhood friends, Joy and Ward, heading up the firm, and comes face-to-face with the dark forces he has learned about during his warrior training.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Billionaire Danny Rand (Finn Jones) returns to New York City after being missing for years, trying to reconnect with his past and his family legacy. He fights against the criminal element corrupting New York City with his kung-fu mastery and ability to summon the awesome power of the fiery Iron Fist.
The focus of the series looks to be action over anything else. It promises some spectacular stunts and fight scenes and impressive special effects set against the real-life backdrop of New York. The show looks set to keep Danny – and us – puzzling over who he can trust, and who might be good or bad.
Warned that the city is no place for the Iron Fist, Danny retorts: “I have a vision of total victory and nothing else”.
Marvel’s Iron Fist follows Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage as the fourth in Netflix’s hero series. The series’ are leading to the teaming up of the main characters in Marvel’s The Defenders, which is set to debut later this year. All 13 episodes of Marvel’s Iron Fist will premiere exclusively on Netflix on March 17.
