With just over a month to go before Marvel’s first team-up series, The Defenders hits Netflix, the fury of the fist himself, Finn Jones has opened up on what makes Iron Fist a different superhero from the other characters in Netflix corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The first season of Iron Fist introduced us to Danny Rand after returning home after spending years away in the fabled city of K’un Lun to take on the criminal underworld plaguing both his Father’s company and New York City itself. Next up, the Immortal Iron Fist will fight alongside the rest of the street level heroes as they put their resources together to take on a mysterious businesswoman named Alexandra, played by Sigourney Weaver.
While speaking over the weekend at Denver Comic Con, Jones revealed the key difference between him and the other superheroes as he explained Danny was “extremely hot-headed,” and “a mess of a character,” making it clear that the character himself is a mess and not the show’s writing. The actor went further to say Marvel is still “growing him into a superhero.”
As for the future of the Iron Fist, Jones has previously teased that Danny is pivotal to the plot of the team-up series and will help The Defenders see the bigger picture. Plot details for The Defenders are still under wraps but it’s likely we will learn more about the upcoming series when the Defenders themselves assemble at San Diego Comic-Con. The series is set for one hour panel in Hall H on Saturday, July 21 at 5:15 p.m.
In addition to Jones, The Defenders also stars Charlie Cox as Daredevil, Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, and Mike Colter as Luke Cage. The series will also see the return of many cast members from the Netflix corner of the MCU including Yung as Elektra, Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing, Carrie-Anne Moss as Jeri Hogarth, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, Eka Darville as Malcolm Ducasse, Scott Glenn as Stick, and Rachael Taylor as Trish Walker. Here’s the official synopsis:
“Marvel’s The Defenders” follows Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. A quartet of singular heroes with one common goal – to save New York City. This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realize they just might be stronger when teamed together.”
The Defenders hits Netflix August 18, 2017.
