Back at the San Diego Comic Con in July, Marvel teased us with the first look of Iron Fist. Now, at the ongoing New York Comic Con, we have our first teaser trailer.
Danny Rand aka Iron Fist is a billionaire (another one?) and an expert martial artist. He is also a well well known member of The Defenders (more on that below) and a BFF of sorts to Luke Cage in the comics.
While the SDCC trailer showed more of the origins of the character, the latest one takes place in the presence. We get to see more of the supporting cast and Iron Fist’s vigilante escapades. There’s also a great tease of the martial artist channelling his Qi.
This will be the last solo series from Marvel (there is The Punisher one of course) before all the heroes join forces in The Defenders (street level Avengers team up).

Another big news coming from Marvel’s panel was all The Defenders cast members coming together for the first time. An even bigger news was the addition of a new star to the cast – Sigourney Weaver. Yes, Ripley is joining The Defenders.
