Iron Fist Trailer – The Final Defender Arrives

This Sunday at New York Comic Con, the latest look at the next Netflix/Marvel superhero was released along with some casting news during The Defenders panel. Take a look at the trailer after the jump:

While the first look set up Danny Rand’s (Finn Jones) origins in a plane crash that killed his parents and left the world to assume he perished as well, this trailer gives us brief glances into the fighting to come from the “living weapon” as he beats the crap out of bad guys and knocks down a steel door in exciting fashion.

Iron Fist premieres on Netflix March 17, 2017.

Next, during the panel for the upcoming Defenders series that will see Matt Murdock/Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Coulter), and Danny Rand/Iron Fist (maybe even some Frank Castle/Punisher {John Bernthal}) team up to takedown some super baddies in the streets of New York, a great bit of casting was announced. Check it out here:

Oh yeah, this just got better. The Alien actress has come on board for the superhero team up series as a yet unnamed villain. There is a choice number of villains Sigourney Weaver could portray, but I have a feeling they are going to create a new character for her.

I think Weaver will be the CEO of the nefarious corporation IGN. So far there is a tie between Jessica Jones and possibly Luke Cage and how they got their powers thru the corporation. If for some reason IGN is teaming up with The Hand, then that will bring in Matt Murdock and Danny Rand into the fight.

Another guess would be Weaver will be Viper. Given she was wearing green at the time of her announcement, myself and several other very excited nerds guessed she was giving a hint (or maybe she just likes that color, who knows). Viper may have already been used in The Wolverine, but there is a chance 20th Century Fox and Marvel decided to play nice again and both studios can use the character in their movies.

I guess we are going to have to wait and find out more later in 2017.
