When Iron Fist May Get His Classic Costume

Iron Fist

For a lot of fans, Netflix's Iron Fist was a disappointment. A lack of direction, pacing issues, and frustrating characters all made the show the least well-received of all the Marvel Netflix shows, and to top it all off, he never even wore the Iron Fist costume. Danny Rand has yet to make a transition to being a full-on superhero, but it's really only a matter of time before he finally puts on a mask. We don't know exactly when that will be, but actor Finn Jones has a good feeling that Danny will finally suit up in Season 2 of Iron Fist.

I'm not the writer for this show, nor am I the executive producer. So unfortunately these things don't fall on my head. But from an actor's distinct perspective, I certainly think that will happen within, hopefully, Season Two.

Finn Jones doesn't have much creative input on Iron Fist, but he's still a pretty good inside source on everything going on with the show. He may not know exactly what's in store, but from his perspective, he thinks fans will get to finally see a costumed Iron fist in Season Two. Jones told CBR in an interview that there's a "real progression" with Danny's story and that they wanted to build up to him becoming a superhero. Given the course and pace of this slow build-up to putting a mask on, Season Two seems to be the logical spot to finally introduce the costume.

While the idea of holding back on the costume is frustrating, it at least makes sense from the story they've created. Danny Rand isn't really out there on the streets trying to help people like Daredevil. In Season One, he was far more concerned with destroying the Hand and had no real need for a costume. Those who finished The Defenders this weekend (don't worry, I won't spoil it) know that Danny will be moving in a different direction and it's easy to see how the costume would come into play. Good thing too, because Iron Fist has a rad costume.

After the poorly received first season, Iron Fist was renewed for a second season by Netflix. Raven Metzner (Sleepy Hollow) will take over showrunner duties from Scott Buck and no other details about the new season have been revealed just yet. Season One left off with Danny and Collen Wing discovering that K'un-Lun had disappeared, so the season will likely center on this cliffhanger.

There is no release date yet for Iron Fist Season Two, but you can watch the latest adventures of the Immortal Iron Fist in The Defenders, which is available on Netflix right now. To learn more about everything hitting the streaming service, check out our Netflix release guide.
