Marvel's Iron Fist NYCC Teaser Trailer First Impressions

Posted by Anthony Mango Saturday, October 8, 2016
The Marvel camp released some new information today about the Netflix series, including the reveal that Sigourney Weaver will be the lead villain in The Defenders as well as the New York Comic Con teaser trailer for the upcoming Iron Fist.

Normally, I would be doing a Trailer Reaction video for this sort of thing, but time is escaping me, so we'll have to settle for option #2: a first-impressions review breakdown.


  • Madame Gao! I was hoping she would return. She's a badass.
  • I already hate the Meachums in just a few flashes, so that's good.
  • Seeing Danny's hand glow yellow is great, as it means they're not going to ignore that power aspect.
  • The same goes for the Iron Fist logo on his chest.
  • Colleen Wing looks like she'll be this show's answer to Misty Knight and Elektra mixed together, which is how I was hoping she would be. I'm not super familiar with the character, but from what I do know, she shouldn't be a pushover, so that's good to see her kicking some ass.


  • No look at the costume. Sad face.
  • I still don't quite get how this will feel as gritty as the previous three shows, but I trust them to prove me wrong. This trailer just didn't do that, however.
  • I'm not digging the curly hair and beard look.
  • This didn't "wow" me like the Luke Cage or Daredevil teasers did. I'm left wanting more rather than being pumped, even though I didn't dislike what I saw.

K'un-Lun saved him. Lei Kung trained him. And now, Danny Rand is back to fight for what's his.

Marvel's Iron Fist will premiere on Netflix on March 17, 2017.

Starring: Finn Jones (Danny Rand / Iron Fist), Jessica Henwick (Colleen Wing), Lewis Tan (Zhou Cheng), David Wenham (Harold Meachum), Jessica Stroup (Joy Meachum), Simone Missick (Misty Knight) and Tom Pelphrey (Ward Meachum)
