The last defender is almost here. Marvel’s Iron Fist is two weeks away so I thought I can explain what’s the synopsis of the series is all about and how it will lead up to Marvel’s The Defenders.
Here’s the trailer for a reminder what can we expect.
So the synopsis of the Iron Fist series is more about someone inside of Danny Rand’s family company called Rand Enterprises, had plotted assassination of Danny’s parents whilst they were on plane. This has led to a plane crash which he was the lone survivor aged 10 years old. He spent 15 years in the place where was trained by the Buddhists and had the power of the Iron Fist allowing him to channel his focus of his chi energy (other known as the life force energy).
After he returned to New York, he heads to his company that security guards shoved him to the exit as they didn’t know Danny Rand is alive as they saw him as a crazy homeless person who they thought of him as imposer. However, Danny has to force his way to the top using his martial arts to get through several security guards.
With announcements of Danny’s “return from the dead”, the antagonist of the series Harold Meachum has established a rift between himself and Rand with his children Joy and Ward Meachum are in the between mixed feelings on Danny’s return as one of them likes Rand but the other would be bring tensions whenever Danny is in the room or anywhere.
However, Danny will not be alone, with the likes of Colleen Wing (played by Jessica Henwick) who owns the martial arts dojo in New York will be assisting Rand throughout the series and may end up liking each other (just guessing). Other than Colleen, Claire Temple (Rosario Dawnson) who joins Colleen’s dojo after picking a paper from a flyer in the last episode of season one Luke Cage which was only referenced in a lead up to Iron Fist.
With guest appearances from Jeri Hogarth (Carrie-Anne Moss) who will only appear probably one episode when Danny returns to New York. Lewis Tan who is best known for being a stuntman for big movies like The Fast and The Furious and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End will be playing a guest appearance as Zhou Cheng who serves Ch’i-Lin who is tasked to kill everyone who is Iron Fist and that could be Rand needs to stay alive if he puts that guy down. Finally, one character who returns from Daredevil is no other than Madam Gao (Wai Ching Ho).
I cannot wait for Iron Fist, it’s going to be fist fighting madness and martial-ly exciting.
I think after Iron Fist series, whenever The Defenders come about, it’ll only take place few months after Daredevil season two and probably Danny would be recruited by Claire Temple who is linked with Matt Murdock, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage will get assembled as Heroes for Hire. With the help of every characters from Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist series, it’s going to be a tricky scenario how they would make an first impression like The Avengers did. It’s tricky
Next time, I’ll do an full article about The Defenders on who’s in like I mentioned above and what will be an synopsis of the mini-series.
