First 'Iron Fist' Trailer Tells Origin Story of Danny Rand

The first trailer for Marvel's "Iron Fist" just dropped and there is a lot to digest from the show that follows in the footsteps of "Jessica Jones," "Daredevil" and "Luke Cage" on Netflix.

This is the last standalone series for Marvel on Netflix before we get "The Defenders" later this year.

In this clip, we are introduced to Finn Jones' Danny Rand, who becomes the Iron Fist. You know Jones from his run on "Game of Thrones." At the onset, Rand tries to get his foot in the door at his family's company, but security thinks he's a trespasser from the way he's dressed.

Then he springs into action, easily taking out all the guards.

But the clip turns into an origin story quickly, explaining how Rand was with his parents in their private jet when it crashed. He was just 10 and the only survivor. He was eventually taken in by monks.

Now that he's back, people have questions. How did he learn martial arts and where has he been? More importantly, someone else wants to run his family's company and an underbelly wants Rand out of the picture.

Rosario Dawson reprises her role as Claire Temple, the nurse who helped both Daredevil and Luke Cage. She wants Iron Fist to fight back against the criminals in the city. Jessica Henwick's Colleen Wing teams up with Rand, showing off her fighting skills.

"I've been training my whole life for this," he says.

The clip ends with a lot of action and the words, "The final defender arrives," alluding to the Avengers-like team-up coming later this year.

"Iron Fist" is out March 17 on Netflix.

Iron Fist Trailer: The Final Defender Has Arrived

First there was Daredevil. Then Jessica Jones and Luke Cage. Now it’s time to get ready for Iron Fist. The fourth and final of Marvel’s Defenders is finally coming to Netflix—and he’s doing it barefoot. In the first trailer for the series, which like the three before it will ultimately tie into Netflix’s The Defenders, Danny Rand (Finn Jones) returns to New York City, minus socks and shoes, to reclaim his father’s company and beat up bad guys. He’s been away for 15 years, during which time everyone thought he was dead but he was actually learning martial arts. Now he’s returned and wants to eradicate the criminal syndicate that’s infiltrated Rand Enterprises. Get ready for awesome hand-to-hand combat March 17.


Danny Rand Discovers He Can't Go Home Again in a Giant New Iron Fist Trailer

In this new, extended trailer for Netflix’s upcoming Iron Fist TV series, Harold Meachum (David Wenham) asks, “Why did he wait this long to show up? Where the hell did he learn martial arts?” These are very valid questions.

Another good question comes from Claire (Rosario Dawson), when responding to Danny’s declaration that “I am the Iron Fist” in the most appropriate way possible: “What the hell does that mean?”

I guess we’ll get answers on March 17.
