With Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage streaming on Netflix, there’s only one member of Marvel Television’s Defenders team left to make his debut. A thanks to a brief teaser posted on Marvel’s Facebook page this morning, we now know when:
Marvel’s Iron Fist will hit Netflix on March 17, 2017.
Iron Fist, alias Danny Rand, is the orphaned son of billionaires who becomes a martial arts expert and fights in the name of justice in the inner city of a major metropolis. But, unlike Batman, he has a sweet tattoo and vaguely magic powers that he got from punching a dragon’s heart. He’s best friends with Luke Cage, is the longtime romantic partner of Misty Knight, and has already heard every fisting joke you’re about to tell.
Iron Fist is the last of the individual Marvel Netflix series to debut, to be followed by The Defenders, a feature Netflix film in which all four series will crossover for one epic team up and probably fighting a lot of ninjas.
