Why Iron Fist Will Be Different From Netflix’s Other Marvel Shows
So far, Marvel's Netflix shows have been known for being dark and sometimes harrowing, closer to r-rated than a lot of their film and ABC counterparts. However, that may be changing with an upcoming Marvel project on the subscription streaming service. Marvel's Iron Fist will reportedly be different than the other Netflix series in one specific way: its tone. In a recent interview, executive producer Scott Buck explained exactly how Iron Fist will be different than the other related shows.
Speaking with IGN, Scott Buck explained there are some differences between Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and the upcoming Iron Fist. Obviously, there have been differences in characters, the villains and even the neighborhoods in each of the shows, but in Iron Fist, the tone will also be a little lighter. Interestingly, that's not something we've seen so far in regards to footage on the show.
If you'd like to get an idea of the tone of Iron Fist, you can already do that. This weekend, Netflix dropped the first trailer for Iron Fist. It's action-packed, and features lead character Danny Rand looking pretty serious, indeed. But just because the Netflix shows are branding similarly doesn't mean they will be super similar. Recently, Luke Cage showed how intriguing a different setting and tone can be. To find out what Iron Fist will look like, you can catch the first full trailer, below.
Some other differences with Iron Fist will be smaller. Scott Buck and other Marvel executive producer Jeph Loeb also had this to say about the upcoming series:
At this point, it's great that Marvel figured out the direction of the character. Rumors early on stated that Iron Fist is one series the company had trouble getting off the ground, and now it is going to hit the schedule sooner rather than later. New episodes are expected to premiere on March 17, 2017.
