Hells Kitchen is without their hero after the believed death of Daredevil in 2017’s Marvel’s The Defenders, and keeping his promise from the end of that series Danny Rand the Immortal Iron Fist is rising to try and fill that space. Problem is, it’s not going to be as easy as he may have hoped.
In the first full-length trailer for season two of Marvel’s Iron Fist, Danny is dealing with being a hero as well as cleaning up the remains of the fallen Hand organization as well as the emergence of his former childhood friend turned foe Davos the Steel Serpent (Sacha Dhawan).
Along with the new foe, the trailer suggests that more of Danny’s backstory from his time in the mystical city K’un-Lun, and his past with Davos, will be explored through flashbacks. Perhaps the mystical city will even return or play some part in the present after mysteriously vanishing at the end of season one. There are also multiple looks at the very comic book like masks that Danny and Davos wear when training, as well as a mummified body wearing the Iron Fist mask that fans know well for the character suggesting that the legacy aspect of the Iron Fist that the comics have explored greatly in recent years might be in play.
Marvel’s Iron Fist stars Finn Jones, Jessica Henwick, Sacha Dhawan, Simone Missick, Tom Pelphrey, Jessica Stroup and Alice Eve. The entire season debuts on September 07.
