‘Defenders’ Featurette Confirms ‘Iron Fist’ Return With More New Footage
We’re only days away from The Defenders spilling all its Hand-y secrets, and a new featurette puts a notable crack in that dam. Catch a three-minute sneak peek of Marvel’s Netflix team-up miniseries, and see what departed Iron Fist star definitely lives to fight another day.
You’re warned of minor spoilers for Iron Fist and The Defenders from here on out, but where the second Defenders trailer appeared to showcase Ramón Rodríguez’s Hand leader “Bakuto,” the character is most definitely back from his death at the edge of Colleen Wing’s sword. The new footage reveals several looks at different “fingers” of The Hand, so who’s this middle fellow next to Madame Gao, hmm?
Elsewhere, Marvel’s eight-episode Netflix Defenders will feature among the returning cast Elodie Yung, Jessica Henwick, Scott Glenn, Rosario Dawson, Rachael Taylor, Simone Missick, Deborah Ann Woll, Carrie-Anne Moss, Elden Henson and Eka Darville. Sigourney Weaver will portray the villainous “Alexandra,” while the team-up series is helmed by Daredevil showrunner Marco Ramirez, and directed in part by Jessica Jones director S.J. Clarkson.
We’ll have on The Defenders this weekend, so watch the trailer below and stay tuned.
