Alice Eve has teased the second season of Marvel’s Iron Fist on Netflix as an origin story for her character Typhoid Mary.
Speaking to CBR at San Diego Comic-Con last month, Even confirmed that the second season will explore the origins of Typhoid Mary:
“You know, [showrunner] Raven [Metzner] has had Typhoid Mary in the film he wrote, Elektra, and has always been interested in the character and is certainly versed in the comics and educated me a lot and gave me the comics to read, and the essence of the comics is a real, visceral violence and violence as a response to trauma and violence as a response to communication. I think she’d rather be violent than say hello. I think that that has translated really well over into the series, because that’s the essence of what Raven took in terms of the origin story. Maybe there are slight departures, but the fury is there.”
Eve further discussed the role of Typhoid Mary in the upcoming season and how the origins of the character will be explored using in flashbacks:
“I think that it’s fair to say it’s an origin story. I think that that’s what I certainly was investigating when we were doing it. I think that we don’t know at the beginning what we’re doing. I don’t think she knows what she’s doing. I think that, through various events and the idea that you don’t necessarily remember what your other personality did, I think that that’s a big part of how she integrates herself in the world that she does downtown. But yeah, we do see some flashbacks.”
The head of Marvel TV Jeph Loeb shared the approach they are taking with the character and says that viewers are going to learn about her as they go and there’s a lot of mystery with the character at first:
“It’s fun to talk about it here at Comic-Con, but the truth is — when people experience it — they’re not going to know that she’s Typhoid Mary. They’re just going to be watching a show and this woman is going to come in and behave a certain way, and then another woman is going to come in and behave a different way, and they both happen to be played by this woman, and they’re going to have to go, ‘Well, what’s happening here, and how does that affect everybody in the story?’ So the history of her and where they were beforehand is, I think, the fun of watching it happen along the way.”
Iron Fist Season 2 stars Finn Jones, Jessica Henwick, Tom Pelphrey, Jessica Stroup, Sacha Dhawan, Ramón Rodríguez, Rosario Dawson, David Wenham, Simone Missick, and Alice Eve.
Iron Fist Season 2 will be released on Netflix on September 7, 2018.
