I was lucky enough to get advance screeners of the first 4 episodes of Marvel’s The Defenders and boy was I pissed. Not because that the those first four were bad but they left me hanging. I had really gotten into the show and then bam done. Depending on when you read this will have only a few days to see the episodes all at once. Marvel’s The Defenders drop this Friday and I will finish it this weekend.
Netflix posted a featurette to help get you into the mood. I don’t think it will take much if you have been waiting this long.
Marvel’s The Defenders which premieres globally on Netflix on August 18, 2017 at 12:01am PT follows Matt Murdock/Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Danny Rand/Iron Fist (Finn Jones), a quartet of singular heroes with one common goal – to save New York City. This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realize they just might be stronger when teamed together.

It is only a short time before we get to see the Fourth Defender, Danny Rand. On March 17 Netflix and Marvel will give us ‘Iron Fist’. To help us get to know Danny Rand better Netflix released a featurette titled “I am Danny Rand” that explores his 15 year disappearance and the cold reality of what he faces on his return to New York.
I like many of you I know very little of the “Iron Fist” or of Danny Rand. I have to believe that from the work that Netflix and Marvel have done on the previous series, Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage. That this series will continue the high level of story tell will give us another hero to cheer.
Billionaire Danny Rand (Finn Jones) returns to New York City after being missing for years, trying to reconnect with his past and his family legacy. He fights against the criminal element corrupting New York City with his kung-fu mastery and ability to summon the awesome power of the fiery Iron Fist.

That’s a pretty neat look. I’ve been looking forward to this series since the beginning of the Marvel series on Netflix. I think Sigourney Weaver is a fantastic choice as the villain and can go toe to toe with any the heroes in this series and the actors that play them. EW took the photo so they get the credit……enjoy
