NYCC 2015: Iron Fist, Layer By Layer


Next year Netflix will release a long-in-the-making Marvel series called The Defenders where the four heroes of the previous Marvel Netflix shows team up…..Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. Wait, when did Iron Fist happen? Not yet, but soon.

We may be shown a bit of new footage from Marvel’s Iron Fist later at NYCC, but for now, Netflix brought us some material that has nothing to do with the TV show yet is interesting in its own right. It’s the cover for Marvel Premiere #15, a comic that will spotlight Iron Fist and retell his origin.

In Marvel’s Iron Fist, Danny Rand returns to New York City after being missing for years, trying to reconnect with his past and his family legacy. He fights against the criminal element corrupting his world around him with his incredible kung-fu mastery and ability to summon the awesome power of the fiery Iron Fist.” The cover is drawn by Jay Anacleto, and here you can see his art being created layer by layer, from pencil to final color.

Since we just got Luke Cage, Netflix may not feel ready to show us live-action Iron Fist footage yet. But when the show appears, it’ll star Finn Jones as Daniel Rand(Iron Fist’s secret identity), Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing, David Wenham as Harold Meachum, Jessica Stroup as Joy Meachum, and Tom Pelphrey as Ward Meachum, Lawyer Jeri Hogarth (from Jessica Jones) will also be making a guest appearance, played again by Carrie Anne-Moss.
