In less than one month, all of the internet will be binge watching Marvel Television’s latest project Iron Fist! Weirdly enough we’ve only had one trailer and that was a NYCC back in October of last year. Out of all the Netflix series this is the one (outside of Daredevil) that fans have itching to watch since the initial announcement of this partnership. Well the final trailer is here, let’s take a look.
Can you hear that sound? That’s the sound of pure satisfaction and hype as Marvel fans rejoiced as this trailer finished! First off I have no experience with watching Finn Jones and when I first saw images that he was going to be Danny Rand I was a bit skeptical. Even though it was a small dose I’m thrilled that Danny Rand brings a unique sense of humor. I have no doubt that Jones will have plenty of moments to brood and deal with dark situations, Iron Fist’s attitude in the comics is one of zen and seeing that translated to the screen is just proof that Marvel respects the source material.
Just looking at this trailer, I’m getting Captain America: The First Avenger goosebumps. To expand on that knowing that we’re close to the climax of this story with the Defenders and seeing Madam Gao in the shadows reminds me of Loki working to get the Tesseract in the first Avengers film. I doubt we’ll get any cameos from any of the other Defenders but once again Rosario Dawson’s character just can’t but help find herself in crazy situations.
However despite my optimism I’m not really a fan of how they decided to illuminate the actual Iron Fist. I’ve always liked that in the comics the ki surrounds the actual fist kinda like a glove. Now don’t get me wrong I think the actual effect of the glowing inside the hand is pretty cool but my inner nerd would rather have a complete surrounding of the fist but I can learn to live with it. I’m super excited for Iron Fist and it’s even more awesome that we’re less than away from it debuting on Netflix! Are you excited for Iron Fist after watching this trailer?
