The first “Iron Fist” full-length trailer was released Saturday at the show’s New York Comic Con panel, offering fans their first glimpse of the latest small screen hero in action.
The series follows billionaire Danny Rand (Finn Jones), who returns to New York City after being missing for years. He tries to reconnect with his past and his family legacy, but ends up fighting against the criminal element corrupting New York City with his kung-fu mastery, which allows him to channel his inner chi energy into devastating blows.
Jessica Henwick, David Wenham, Jessica Stroup, and Lewis Tan will also star in the series. Rosario Dawson will also reprise her role as Claire Temple from the other three Marvel shows.
The series follows the premieres of “Daredevil,” “Jessica Jones,” and most recently “Luke Cage.” After “Iron Fist,” all four heroes will join forces for “The Defenders” miniseries crossover, which is expected to air in late 2017.
In addition, Jon Bernthal will reprise his role as Frank Castle, a.k.a The Punisher, from “Daredevil” Season 2 in a standalone series which has yet to set a premiere date, but Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb confirmed at the “Iron Fist” panel that production has begun.
All 13 one-hour episodes of “Iron Fist” will premiere on March 17.
