Yesterday was a big day for fans of Marvel’s Netflix series. Not only did the two companies reveal the first (not so great) teaser for The Defenders, they also revealed that Daredevil would be getting a third season and showed off brand new trailers for two highly anticipated shows: Luke Cage and Iron Fist.
If you watched Jessica Jones when it hit Netflix late last year, you already know Luke Cage as Jessica’s love interest. Although we spent a lot of time with him, we still don’t know much about his past, but expect to learn a whole lot more about Luke when the first season of his show hits on September 30th:
After a sabotaged experiment leaves him with super strength and unbreakable skin, Luke Cage (Mike Colter) becomes a fugitive who attempts to rebuild his life in modern day Harlem, New York City. But soon he is pulled out of the shadows and must fight a battle for the heart of his city – forcing him to confront a past he had tried to bury.
The final Defender, Iron Fist, is the only main character from the Marvel Netflix universe that we haven’t met yet. Although Marvel’s Netflix shows have been relatively grounded in reality up to this point (you know, for superhero stories), Iron Fist wields a mystical power that should make this show quite different than what we’re used to seeing from Daredevil, Jessica and Luke:
Danny Rand fights relentlessly to regain everything he’s lost in Marvel’s Iron Fist, coming soon to Netflix.
Iron Fist hasn’t been given a release date other than 2017 yet.
