New Iron Fist teaser brings the pain; Sigourney Weaver joins The Defenders

10.09.2016

Just when we thought a little 15-second teaser for IRON FIST was all we were gonna get for a while, Marvel done goes and makes us feel like a bunch of fools. Not only did they drop an actual teaser trailer, but they also announced additional characters that will be making appearances in FIST and THE PUNISHER series, AND gave us some of the best news regarding THE DEFENDERS yet. But first the trailer!

Featuring just about everything you could want from an IRON FIST trailer, the footage shows Danny Rand (Finn Jones) doing some deep soul searching, then some serious ass kicking, and finally makes us all jealous by showing off the best chest tattoo of all time. Some folks just have everything.

Behold in awe and envy below!

As for the casting news, it was announced that none other than Rosario Dawson will make an appearance in FIST, reprising her role as Claire Temple. She's also appeared in the other Marvel shows DAREDEVIL, JESSICA JONES and LUKE CAGE, so it’s not that big of a surprise she’s joining FIST. Still, it’s cool she will get to have the set, if you know what I mean, and the audience was more the thrilled when she joined the cast onstage during the panel.

As well, it was revealed that actress Deborah Ann Woll, who played Karen Page in DAREDEVIL, will be joining Jon Bernthal in the upcoming series around The Punisher. Page was one of the few people on Frank Castle's (a.k.a. The Punisher) side in the second season of DAREDEVIL, but the nature of their relationship left on somewhat ambiguous terms by the end. Most likely the series will develop said relationship. Or he will kill her or something. Who knows?

But although those additions may be a pleasant treat for Marvel fans, this news will blow your socks off…if I hadn’t already spoiled it in the headline. The amazing, incomparable, astounding and glorious Sigourney Weaver will be joining the cast of THE DEFENDERS as the main villain. No word yet on who that villain is, but who gives a shit? It’s Sigourney f@cking Weaver! She could be playing a dastardly taxidermist and it would work. Much like with Dawson, the crowd understandably lost their shit when she joined The Defenders themselves, Charlie Cox (Daredevil), Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones), Mike Colter (Luke Cage) and Finn Jones (Iron Fist) ontage, and producer Jeph Loeb had this to say about Weaver:

“Marvel is honored to have an actress of her caliber and status join what is already our biggest show ever! She is by definition a class act.”

Now that all this good news has come out, the only question we have left regards when we will get to see this upcoming amazingness. Recently Marvel announced that FIST was coming March 17 of next year, and according to Loeb the crew finished filming the season just hours before the panel. As for DEFENDERS, there’s no release date yet but production will start this November in New York.

I know March seems like a long way off, but Ritter has something for you that may hold you over till then…

 

No. Big. Deal. #TheDefenders unite #nycc2016

OK, I get it, all super-heroes can't be ripped like Hugh Jackman, but Iron Fist is supposed to be AT LEAST ripped like a martial artist !
Here, he looks more super-emo than super-hero !
Still, Marvel TV hasn't disappoint me so far, casting wise, so wait and see...

When they put here up against the preacher, the bitch, the bore, the brute and the one I don't know yet (Iron Fist) I might just cheer for Weaver's villain to win this fight. Wouldn't that be a fun genre spin?

Better idea, don't like it then ignore it by not watching. Let those of us who like it enjoy it.

Of course I'm not going to watch it.
But it pains me that the market is flooded with Superhero Movies and Shows because it's mostly safer cashcrabs for the studios instead of coming up with new Ideas. That is my problem.

Looks like shit. And they could've found a different actor that didn't look like Marv from Home Alone. Pass

How about you go look up the comic and see what Danny Rand looks like. You'd find they pretty much nailed it.

A November production means a Spring 2018 release for Defenders. This could leave open the door for Punisher to be released around September 2017.
