As the summer months are coming to a close, there's much excitement to be had about going back to school, about sports, about the approaching Oscar season, and more. For Marvel TV fans, it means Netflix's impending release of Iron Fist Season 2, which has finally released its first full-length trailer. It's full of solid fight choreography that almost already puts Season 1 to shame, and the trailer also hints at how Season 2 big bad Davos may have gotten his red-fist powers on the way to becoming Steel Serpent. Check it out!
As the trailer immediately shows, Danny Rand has not been settling back and resting on cash piles in the aftermath of The Defenders. He has been busy as hell trying to keep New York City safe, all while improving his battle skills, both of the general variety and of the glowing fist kind. And he's not alone, with Colleen taking things up a notch in her own ways. She might want Danny to find his own inner peace, but she knows that wars are afoot, so she's got her own skills to keep sharp. And boy, are they.
Along with more looks at the traditional yellow Iron Fist mask, the newest element introduced in the trailer was still a familiar one, as Sacha Dhawan's Davos enters the limelight as the big Season 2 antagonist, and his power-filled evolution to comic book alter ego Steel Serpent was brought up big-time in the trailer, with the snake logo popping up as a tattoo on Davos' back as he appears to be trying to sap Danny of his powers. And going from that moment, it's assumed that Davos' red-fist powers have something to do with the rotted-out corpse of that other K'un-Lun warrior that's shown.
I'll be looking forward to watching Danny and Davos brawl across New York, above ground and underground and maybe even underwater. (Probably not.) I'm sort of picturing a lightsaber-esque scenario with the two using their colored fists to beat the crap out of one another. I'm more interested in seeing Colleen and Misty partner up to whoop up on some criminals, but this red has an uncanny effect on me.
Coming in at just ten episodes, Iron Fist Season 2 will make its debut on Netflix on Friday, September 7, at 12:01 a.m. ET. So be sure to tune in to see how the sophomore efforts compare to the previous ones. (I loved Danny's appearance in Luke Cage Season 2, so I'm hopeful.) In the meantime, our 2018 Netflix schedule and our fall premiere rundown will keep you current with all the other shows coming soon.
