‘Marvel’s Iron Fist’ is a Netflix original superhero web series. It launched on March 17, 2017, and had action, drama, and martial arts elements. Scott Buck founded it, but Raven Metzner subsequently took it.
Iron Fist is based on a martial arts specialist’s comic book superhero of the same name. The project is backed by Marvel Television and ABC Studios, with Devilina Productions producing the first season.
Evan Perazzo produces the sitcom, including Cindy Holland, Allie Goss, Alison Engel, Kris Henigman, Alan Fine, Joe Quesada, Dan Buckley, Jim Chory, Jeph Loeb, and Raven Metzner.
Scott Buck served as executive producer for the first season alone, while John Dahl served as co-executive producer for the premiere episode. Stan Lee served as an executive producer on the film until his untimely passing in 2018.
The story chronicles the escapades of Danny Rand, a wealthy orphan who returns after years as a martial arts master endowed with the magical Iron Fist.
Viewers may be interesting to learn that this was the last character presented by Marvel on Netflix before they went on to ‘The Defenders,’ the team comprised of Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Jessica Jones.
While ‘Iron Fist’ did not fail to captivate viewers due to its Marvel superhero origins, many critiqued the program for its lack of creativity and overall lack of advancement. However, the hero received more positive comments in the subsequent season.
Iron Fist Season 3 Release Date
Netflix and Disney announced in a joint statement that “Marvel’s Iron Fist will not return for a third season on Netflix.” Marvel Television and Netflix are very proud of the series and appreciative of the dedication of our outstanding cast, crew, and showrunners.
We’re grateful to the fans that stuck with us over these two seasons and for the collaboration on this series. While the Netflix series has concluded, the immortal Iron Fist will continue to exist.”
Iron Fist’s solo days seem to be finished, but with other Defenders’ standalone series now airing, it appears as if he will continue to feature in other episodes.
Iron Fist Season Plot
The show’s premise centers on Danny Rand, aka Iron Fist, “a martial arts master with the ability to summon the Iron Fist, as he serves as Chinatown’s guardian with Colleen Wing.” Danny is depicted returning 15 years later to collect his portion in Rand Industries, his father’s colossal conglomerate.
However, he quickly discovers that something is wrong, as it turns out that the Hand, a secretive underground ninja gang, is attempting to utilize his firm for bad purposes.
Danny is not just an upright guy; as the Iron Fist, he is truly the Hand’s adversary. However, he must choose between being Danny Rand, safeguarding his firm, and doing his Iron Fist duty.
The plot then shifts to Danny’s early days as a hero after the debacle of ‘The Defenders,’ in which Daredevil perished.
Attempting to be the best guardian he can be, Danny faces his greatest obstacle when his old buddy Davos takes away his Fist. Without its abilities, he must intensify his training to defeat Davos.
Davos is not a villain in the traditional sense. He devolves into dictatorship, attempting to eradicate all crime and rule with an iron hand, all puns intended.
What makes the show stand out is Danny’s battle for identification. First, we see him torn between the lives of a Buddhist monk and a wealthy. Later on, the same battle occurs, as he must come to terms with his identity as Danny and the Iron Fist.
Our protagonist makes a few mistakes along the road. He is, however, restrained by Colleen’s sound advice and technical assistance. They work together to bring down the Hand and Davos.
Colleen becomes the new Iron Fist in the process, and Danny seems to acquire different abilities as he fires Iron Fist like bullets. That is where the program ends, on an obvious cliffhanger, with Danny realizing the importance of understanding one’s origins and setting out to do so.
The series does an excellent job of comparing east and west without resorting to excessive theft. The battle sequences are well staged, as one would expect from a martial arts specialist.
While it originally battled with pace, things improved dramatically under the new showrunner, and it earned a place of honor among the other Marvel programs on Netflix.
While there is no assurance that a second season will occur, if one does, it is hoped that it would continue the tale of Colleen and Danny’s new abilities and how they affect their dynamic.
It has already touched on several critical points, such as the power of family and the need for belonging. It has also shown how even individuals with the greatest intentions may be corrupted by power.
With so many elements already there, one can only hope that the program is given a chance to complete the tale it started.
