Following yesterday’s announcement that Iron Fist was renewed for a second season, it has been revealed that showrunner Scott Buck will be stepping down from the role. Raven Metzner, best known for his work on Sleepy Hollow, will be taking Buck’s role as the creative leader going forward.
Entertainment Weekly had the chance to speak to Marvel executive Jeph Loeb who gave a statement regarding Metzner’s involvement:
“Raven’s love of all things Iron Fist and his extensive knowledge of martial arts films made him the perfect choice to continue telling the adventures of Danny Rand and Colleen Wing.”
It isn’t surprising that Iron Fist will be receiving a new showrunner considering the mixed to negative reviews the first season received from critics. While fans may have found enjoyment in the season, it’s apparent that Marvel wants more out of the series and is willing to hire new talent if it means a better product.
Iron Fist will next be seen in Marvel’s The Defenders, with all episodes releasing on August 18 on Netflix.
