It seems like only yesterday that we watched a blind lawyer from Hell's Kitchen don a makeshift mask and kick some serious ass. The Netflix Defenders universe has come a long way since the days of Daredevil's first season, and we will soon see it come to a head when Danny Rand finally makes his grand introduction. We've seen quite a bit of footage from the upcoming Iron Fist series, but we have yet to get a proper glimpse at the costume. Now, according to Finn Jones: we will have to wait and see whether or not there even is a costume. The actor explained:
I mean, who says there's going to be a costume? This is a modern - I can't say any more. Marvel are going to kill me. There maybe a costume, there may not be. We're looking at a suit that, you know.
Finn Jones recently took part in an Extra Facebook Q&A session and as you can see, he played incredibly coy about whether or not his version of Danny Rand will don the classic Iron Fist suit at some point. They have apparently considered some versions of the memorable Iron Fist outfit, but whether or not they will implement them into the show remains to be seen. Based upon how Jones frames his statement, a costume seems more likely than not, but it remains somewhat up in the air.
This becomes even harder to pin down when we consider just how often Marvel's Netflix shows have deviated from traditional character designs. While guys like Daredevil and The Punisher eventually donned their iconic outfits, characters like Luke Cage and Jessica Jones have spurred their more outlandish comic book attire. Sure, Luke has been seen wearing his traditional yellow shirt a few times in his own solo series, but it's not a regular occurrence.
Iron Fist wears one of the more bizarre and exotic costumes of the entire Defenders roster, so it will be seriously interesting to see how Iron Fist (and The Defenders) subsequently deal with the nature of his outfit. In a TV universe defined by grounded and gritty realism, we hope they can still find a place for it.
