New Iron Fist Trailer Introduces the Final Defender
This year, New York Comic-Con has been home to a number of highly-anticipated events, but chief among them may be the Marvel-Netflix panel, which took place on Saturday and did not disappoint. While every Marvel-Netflix show got their time in the sun, much of the focus was centered around Iron Fist, the final show to debut before the titular superhero, Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage team up to form the Defenders in 2017.
Netflix premiered five never-before-seen clips from the show exclusively to the audience members in attendance, but they did, however, release a brand new Iron Fist trailer to the public. Feel free to take a look at the teaser down below:
While it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise, seeing as how her character practically serves as the Nick Fury of the Marvel-Netflix shows, showrunner Scott Buck revealed that Rosario Dawson is reprising her role as Claire Temple for Iron Fist. This means that she’ll be going four for four with Marvel-Netflix shows, as she has already appeared in Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage.
Apparently, the next few months will consist solely of post-production for the Iron Fist team, as Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb said, “We can’t show you the show, we just finished filming this morning.”
Check out the official Iron Fist plot synopsis here:
Fifteen years after being presumed dead in a plane crash, Danny Rand (Finn Jones) mysteriously returns to New York City determined to reclaim his birthright and family company. However, when a long-destined enemy rises in New York, this living weapon is forced to choose between his family’s legacy and his duties as the Iron Fist.
Additionally, all four of the Defenders, Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock/Daredevil), Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones) Mike Colter (Luke Cage) and Finn Jones (Danny Rand/Iron Fist), took the stage together. Marvel captured the moment as it happened and released it online:

Other interesting moments at the panel included the announcement that Sigourney Weaver would be playing the main villain in Netflix’s crossover event series The Defenders and the reveal that The Punisher has been filming for the past week.
All 13 hour-long Iron Fist episodes will be available for streaming starting on March 17, 2017.
