Finished Luke Cage? You can now start counting down to the next Marvel series on Netflix, Iron Fist.
By most accounts, Marvel‘s experiment to release a bunch of shows on Netflix – each starring a superhero who might not work in a feature film and to tell a longer story – has been a success. It’s hard to escape the chatter whenever one gets released, as we saw recently with Luke Cage, whose first season appeared on the streaming service on Friday, September 30th.
The next series scheduled for release is Iron Fist. As announced today, it will appear on Netflix on March 17, 2017. It is the last of the individual series prior to The Defenders, a miniseries starring all four of the lead characters we’ll have seen: Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist.
The Iron Fist character will be played by Finn Jones, who is probably best known for playing Loras Tyrell on Game of Thrones. The plot sees Jones’ character return to New York City after a 15-year hiatus in order to reclaim his family’s company – only to find that it won’t be that simple.
All 13 episodes of Iron Fist will be released, as mentioned, on March 17, 2017, exclusively on Netflix.
