The year’s end is here and a new one takes over in a few days. While there are a number of new shows coming this 2017, it seems the new year is shaping up to be a year of more superheroes on TV. With much-awaited titles like Iron Fist, check out which superheroes are making their way to the small screen.
Iron Fist makes it as one of the highly-anticipated on the list. It follows Marvel’s successful stint in Netflix after Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage received praise from critics. Game of Thrones‘ Finn Jones takes on the role of Danny Rand/Iron Fist.
Den of Geek relays the official synopsis of the upcoming show as follows:
“Danny Rand 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 his world around him with his incredible kung-fu mastery and ability to summon the awesome power of the fiery Iron Fist.”
An announcement trailer revealed that Marvel’s Iron Fist drops on Netflix this Mar. 17, 2017.
Other series coming aside from Iron Fist
After Marvel’s Iron Fist drops, Danny Rand joins the rest of the Netflix heroes as they team up in Marvel’s The Defenders. Details about the superhero team up are mostly under wraps at this point. However, some tidbits already made their way out. One of these includes Vincent D’Onofrio’s potential return to the Netflix part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
An article from Comic Book relays D’Onofrio’s tweets debunking his return. He denies fans’ hope by saying there’s “no chance” Kingpin makes an appearance in The Defenders.
Marvel Cinematic Universe growing on TV
As the Netflix aspect of the MCU continues to grow, Marvel’s effort to bring more characters to TV is also moving forward. Back in November, it was announced that instead of a movie, Marvel’s Inhumans will come to life as a TV series on ABC.
Nevertheless, before it’s premiere, the series debuts its first hour in IMAX theaters worldwide.
