“Iron Fist,” Netflix’s fourth planned Marvel series, got an official premiere date on the streaming service on Tuesday.

The show will premiere on March 17. The announcement was accompanied by a video teaser — in which the Iron Fist dragon logo appeared out of a whiff of smoke — and a first look photo of Finn Jones as the character (below). The photo shows Jones displaying his kung fu skills, leaving a trail of bodies in his wake.

Jones stars as billionaire Danny Rand, who returns to New York City after being missing for years, trying to reconnect with his past and his family legacy. He fights against the criminal element corrupting New York City with his kung-fu mastery and ability to summon the awesome power of the Iron Fist.

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.
