It's been a long road to get back home...Today, Netflix has released the official trailer for Marvel's Iron Fist, which will launch globally on Netflix on Friday March 17, 2017 at 12:01am PT. The action-drama will premiere with thirteen (13) one-hour episodes. But first, we get an exciting sneak peek that introduces the final Defender as he returns to Hell's Kitchen.
Billionaire Danny Rand (Finn Jones) is back in New York City after being missing for years. He is trying to reconnect with his past and his family legacy. He fights against the criminal element corrupting New York City with his kung-fu mastery and ability to summon the awesome power of the fiery Iron Fist.
Fifteen years after being presumed dead in a plane crash, Danny Rand (Finn Jones) mysteriously returns to his home town determined to reclaim his birthright and family company. However, when a long-destined enemy rises in New York, this living weapon is forced to choose between his family's legacy and his duties as the Iron Fist.
Iron Fist will stream the first season in its entirety starting at 12:01am PT on March 17, 2017, in all territories where Netflix is available. Iron Fist is the fourth of Marvel's Netflix original series, following Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage which debuted last weekend. All of these shows are leading up to the teaming of the main characters in The Defenders miniseries on Netflix.
