The fourth Marvel Studios original series by Netflix is “Iron Fist” and this is probably the most anticipated of them all after how great the treatment of “Daredevil” was. Some months ago we got a nice little teaser but here is the full on first official trailer.
The Premise: Danny Rand returns to New York City, after being missing for fifteen years, to reclaim his family company. However, when a threat emerges, Rand must choose between his family’s legacy and his duties as the Iron Fist. (thanks Wiki)

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m sold and that is because I pretty much loved the old “Power Man and Iron Fist” comic when it first debuted. Oddly enough I wasn’t following either hero on their own despite owning a number of their original issues. I’m glad to see Rand joining the ranks of the street level heroes while the larger scale and more cosmic stuff goes on up above them. The final Defender has arrived and this show should surely be a lot of fast paced action. I guess we can expect to not find him “suiting up” until the closing episodes much like we have seen happening in both series of Daredevil. Remember we had Matt donning a “suit” at the close of his first series and The Punisher defining his own look in the final segments of that shows second season. I love the inclusion of Colleen Wing right at the start as she is very important to the story line of the comics and is a part of the Daughters Of The Dragon. I wonder if we shall see Shang-Chi or the White Tiger manifesting sometime soon. That would be awesome for sure. It’s also great that Claire Temple will be returning since she builds a great level of continuity between all the previous characters and I feel they will all come up in reference at some point during the show. Let me know what you think of this clip down in the comments below. March cannot come soon enough for me.
