While the first season of Netflix’s Marvel show Iron Fist wasn’t exactly warmly received by fans or critics, Season 2 is on its way later this year. At San Diego Comic-Con last week, Marvel confirmed the show’s second season will hit Netflix in September, and a new teaser trailer has now been released.
The teaser shows superpowered Danny Rand (Finn Jones) walking down a New York street with Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick). Everything he sees reminds him of his brutal former life in K’un Lun, where he was trained as Iron Fist. Check it out above.
Iron Fist Season 2 also stars Simone Missick, reprising her Luke Cage role as Misty Knight, and Alice Eve (Star Trek: Into Darkness) as the villainous Typhoid Mary. The whole season will be released on Netflix on September 7.
During the SDCC panel, Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb recognized that the second season of Iron Fist needed improvement. He stated that the makers would “up the game” in terms of the show’s fight choreography, with Creed and Black Panther choreographer Clayton Barber on board for this season. In addition, the series has a new showrunner, with former Sleepy Hollow executive producer Raven Metzner taking over from Scott Buck.
In related news, some information about the upcoming third season of Daredevil has emerged. While the show doesn’t yet have a release date, Netflix VP of Original Content Cindy Holland told Deadline that Daredevil Season 3 would be a “return to form,” without the logistical difficulties of Season 2. “The biggest issue was the timing of production and launching of The Defenders,” she said. “We had to shut down all of the shows, so all the actors be available for The Defenders. There is no problem with this season, I think it’s fantastic, it’s a real return to form in my view.”
