Marvel are in the midst of their panel at NYCC promoting their Netflix shows, and boy are they promoting them. The panel promoting the upcoming Defenders and Iron Fist Marvel/Netflix shows opened with a promo featuring a montage of the best moments from Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage so far. This was then followed by a teaser and 3 clips of Iron Fist, which Comicbook.com were there to cover and have described. You can check out their descriptions below.
On the teaser:
It featured new threats (someone holding a hatchet), blood dripping from a fence, a bunch of menacing-looking ninjas, and the rear-shot reveal of none other than Danny Rand/Iron Fist. We then loop back to the first teaser, with Rand punching out his hospital wall. Fade to black and the audience roared with excitement!
On the first clip:
In it, we see Rand (as an adult) returning to America, walking through the streets of New York. He looks at the skyscrapers with childlike wonder. He sees his family company on Vanderbilt Avenue and tells a nearby food vendor, “That’s my building!” The food vendor is understandably skeptical. Rand enters the building asking for Harold Meachum, but the front desk clerk is also skeptical. She shooed Danny to the side, where he watches a video intro about Rand Enterprises featuring Harold and his son Ward. Security then arrives to escort Danny (who does look like a street vagrant) out of the building. Danny then displays some calm – even considerate – martial arts prowess, dancing around the guards, lightly disarming them, and spinning his way into the elevator to go up and see Harodl Meachum. His fighting style and mannerisms are cool and compassionate, using non-aggressive fighting styles like Jujitsu.
On the second clip:
This one is a more brutal scene, with Danny Rand fighting his way through a hallway full of Asian gangsters with hatchets. He pulls out a tiger claw stance and we get to see an impressive sequence of fight choreography (including overhead shot sequence) as Danny tries to reach an elevator where the gangsters are trying to capture Joy. Loeb followed the clip by teasing that the sequence continues with the fight on the elevator.
On the third clip:
The next sneak peek is of Colleen Wing in a cage match with a big man who yells, “This little girl thinks she can fight me?!” Colleen then beats his ass and another guy’s ass to the tune of “Let Your Feet Stomp.” Again, the fight choreography is impressively brutal. The men hold Colleen down and try to break her arm – only to have her reverse on them, knock one guy out and break the other’s arm. The man with the broken arm still tries to fight, so Colleen beats him against the corner of the ring until his blood is raining down on the canvas.
Marvel and Netflix have also released a new trailer for the show which you can read more on here.
Fifteen years after being presumed dead in a plane crash, Danny Rand mysteriously returns to New York City determined to reclaim his birthright and family company. However, when a long-destined enemy rises in New York, this living weapon is forced to choose between his family’s legacy and his duties as the Iron Fist.
Marvel’s Iron Fist stars Finn Jones as Danny Rand/Iron Fist, Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing, David Wenham as Harold Meachum, Jessica Stroup as Joy Meachum, Tom Pelphrey as Ward Meachum and Carrie-Anne Moss as Jeri Hogarth. Scott Buck (Dexter) serves as showrunner for the series, which will debut on Netflix on March 17, 2017.
