Netflix released a first image for its newest superhero series Marvel’s Iron First and launched a teaser revealing a premiere date of March 17, 2017.
In Iron Fist, billionaire Danny Rand (Game of Thrones’ Finn Jones) returns to New York City after being missing for years and presumed dead in a plane crash. Determined to reconnect with his past and his family legacy, he also fights against the criminal element corrupting New York City with his kung-fu mastery and ability to summon the power of the fiery Iron Fist.
The first look image, showing Rand about to deliver a punch, debuted as cast members head to New York Comic Con on October 8. The show will premiere with 13 one-hour episodes.
Iron Fist is the streaming service’s fourth live-action comic series from Marvel, and the news comes on the heels of the Luke Cage September 30 premiere. The franchise also includes Daredevil and Jessica Jones, and will eventually lead to the teaming up of each of the main characters in Marvel’s The Defenders.
