Ahead of a presentation of the series at the upcoming New York Comic-Con this week, Netflix released a promo video to announce the release date of Marvel’s Iron Fist. All 13 episodes of the series’ first season will premiere on March 17, 2017.
The last of the four main series leading up to the Defenders crossover, Iron Fist focuses on Daniel Rand, scion of an international conglomerate who returns to New York 15 years after being presumed dead. Rand spent his time in the land of K’un L’un, training in martial arts and Buddhism while harnessing the mystical powers of the Iron Fist. He returns to reclaim his family’s legacy and avenge the murders of his parents.
Following the overwhelming success of Marvel’s Luke Cage this past weekend and the start of production on Marvel’s The Punisher this past Monday, a release date for the highly anticipated Finn Jones starring series is welcome news. We look forward to what is revealed about the show during the panel at the con this weekend.
Along with the announcement video below, Netflix released a new image of Jones in action as Danny Rand.
