‘Iron Fist’ Takes on Bad Guys in a Bathrobe in New Set Photos
Thus far, first photos of Marvel’s Netflix Iron Fist have given us a pretty good look at Finn Jones’ Danny Rand in full-on hippie mode, but less so that badass warrior fans are hoping for. Now, the latest look is more “The Dude” than The Defenders, but still gives us our first taste of Iron Fist in action.
The Defender abides, man, in new set photos from Iron Fist’s New York City production. Sure, there’s every chance set photographers simply captured Finn Jones practicing a few moves in his bathrobe, but wouldn’t we all feel more endeared of Iron Fist, were Danny Rand to knock back White Russians (more figuratively than literally) as he dealt out street justice from a bathrobe?
So reads the Iron Fist synopsis:
Returning to New York City after being missing for years, Daniel Rand fights against the criminal element corrupting New York City with his incredible kung-fu mastery and ability to summon the awesome power of the fiery Iron Fist.
Elsewhere, following the addition of Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing, Jessica Stroup as Joy Meachum and David Wenham as Harold Meachum, recent breakdowns also suggested Iron Fist likely to begin casting the roles of Shang Chi and “Steel Serpent.” Scott Buck will showrun Iron Fist, while recent reports suggested Jessica Jones writer Scott Reynolds will also have a hand on the creative side.
For the moment, neither Marvel nor Netflix have publicly released a schedule for Iron Fist, The Defenders, or a second season of Jessica Jones, let alone the confirmed Punisher spinoff. Stay tuned for the latest as it arrives.
