It was revealed in a Q&A that Black Panther fight coordinator Clayton Barber has joined the second season of Marvel and Netflix’s Iron Fist.
One of the biggest complaints of Iron Fist‘s first season was the fight sequences, especially in comparison to Daredevil. During Marvel LIVE! at San-Diego Comic-Con, it was revealed Barber would be leading the stunts for Iron Fist‘s sophomore season. During the Q&A, Barber spoke about the show doing old school kung fu.
“Old school kung fu,” Barber said. “That’s what we wanted to do, we wanted to turn this thing into a punk rock song and that’s what we did. You’re really going to enjoy it.”
Barber also says martial artist legend Jackie Chan serves as an inspiration for the stunts in the upcoming season:
“Of course, Jackie Chan!” says Barber. “That’s what we went off of, that’s why we’re calling it old school.”
Iron Fist stars Finn Jones as Danny Rand / Iron Fist, Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing, Tom Pelphrey as Ward Meachum, Jessica Stroup as Joy Meachum, Sacha Dhawan as Davos, Ramón Rodríguez as Bakuto, Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple, David Wenham as Harold Meachum, and Simone Missick as Misty Knight. Alice Eve is set to appear in season two in an undisclosed role.
