Marvel's Iron Fist Gets Premiere Date

Netflix’s Iron Fist series is set to pack a real punch this spring.

The premium streaming service on Tuesday announced that its fourth Marvel series (following Marvel’s Daredevil, Marvel’s Jessica Jones and Marvel’s Luke Cage) will be released on March 17, 2017.

Marvel’s Iron Fist stars Game of Thrones vet Finn Jones as Daniel Rand, who returns to New York City after being missing for years. 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 titular, fiery Iron Fist. The cast also includes Jessica Henwick (Game of Thrones), David Wenham (Top of the Lake), Jessica Stroup (90210), Tom Pelphrey (Banshee) and Carrie-Anne Moss, reprising her Jessica Jones role as lawyer Jeri Hogarth.

    So American boy, raised in mystical Chinese city, premieres on St.Patricks day. Got it.

    Hopefully they’ll add a decent special effect in this one. Luke Cage was boring through and through, one of the reason was because there’s no special effect whatsoever. It’s like they’re just too lazy/too cheap to add one.

    • Jason says:

      Luke Cage was never meant to be a effects heavy show. its more drama. its your fault if you went into it thinking it was every going to be different.

    • Anna says:

      The Netflix heads have been saying since the beginning of these collaborations that they weren’t aiming to make formulaic special effect heavy superhero movies – all of the shows are meant to be dark, gritty dramas, not a freaking Avengers summer flick. Jessica Jones needed special effects because of the premise/story, but there was no need for them here. If you need unnecessary effects, watch Batman vs. Superman.

    • The Kaibosh says:

      I’m scratching my head here at your comment. What special effect did you not see that should have been there? Every time Luke crumpled up a gun they showed it. They didn’t cut away from it. We saw bullets bounce off him. We even got a really up close look at a compound fracture of a man’s arm as he tried to punch him. Luke Cage doesn’t fly or shoot lasers out of his eyes so again what unlazy not cheap effects were you expecting? As for boring: I guess plots that are complex and nuanced that are wrapped up in a top notch soundtrack are a little above you.

    Meh. I have no interest in this. So many super hero shows they’d better have something different to stand out (like Jessica Jones and Luke)…..another story about a straight white guy…..boring.

    • johnc says:

      That’s a very racist and sexist thing to say!!

    • Wow! How racist and sexist can you be?! So only non-straight characters and minorities are interesting? How narrow minded! Come out of your cave sometime and see what the whole world looks like, not just your inner circle. Diversity is what America is about!

    • Jamie says:

      Lmao at all the comments calling you sexist and racist for not being interested in yet another story about a straight white man. Especially in a season where all six CBS fall premiering shows are focused around straight white men – so underrepresented!
      It’s also pretty clear these two don’t actually know what racism and sexism mean if they think they apply to white men in the US.

    So although Misty and Iron Fist are together in the comics they aren’t together on the show?

    • Erik says:

      Seeing how Luke and Danny haven’t met it doesn’t make sense for him to be with misty yet. They met after Luke and Danny formed heroes for hire.
