Netflix have this week released five brand new images of upcoming original series, Marvel’s Iron Fist, starring Finn Jones in the titular role as Danny Rand, alongside a supporting cast that includes Jessica Henwick, David Wenham, Tom Pelphrey and Jessica Stroup.
The official synopsis for the upcoming series reads: “Billionaire Danny Randy (Finn Jones) returns to New York City after being missing for years, trying to reconnect with his past and his family legacy. He 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.”
Tamara Becher serves as a writer on the series, with each episode of the show named after a different kung-fu move and Jones showing off some of his best skills in one of the newly-released pictures.
The show is the fourth addition to the franchise, with Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage all coming to the streaming service throughout the past couple of years. Following on from Iron Fist will come Marvel’s The Defenders, which brings all four of the heroes together to battle the biggest threat to mankind they’ll have ever seen.
Marvel’s Iron Fist launches globally on Netflix on March 17.
