Marvel released a brand new teaser clip for the upcoming second season of Netflix’s Iron Fist. They promise this teaser clip “isn’t a fight. It’s just a warm-up.”
The clip sees Iron Fist taking over Daredevil’s duties following the events of The Defenders. Finn Jones’ Danny Rand tells us, “A war is brewing. This is my city now. It’s my duty to protect it. And I’m not backing down.”
Take a look:
One of the most criticized parts of the first season was the weak fight choreography and it looks like Marvel and Netflix are addressing that criticism head on by giving us a clip of Danny Rand taking on a number of thugs who try to take him on in a rather large alley in New York City. Not only do we get to see some great fight choreography, but the clip teases us at the end with Danny Rand using his Iron Fist powers to send three foes flying.
Along with this teaser clip, footage from the show was shown to fans at San Diego Comic-Con and it revealed two new villains that Iron Fist will face. However, before the villains were revealed they gave us a cryptic teaser as the Iron Fist emblem is manipulated into a serpent.

The second season of Iron Fist will see the Steel Serpent become the main villain. The Steel Serpent was Rand’s former ally Davos played by Sacha Dhawan. Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb hinted at what Davos would be getting up to:
“I think those of you that know, know that we’re going to some pretty amazing places. If you’ve been looking at the neon turn from green to red, you have a pretty good idea of what Sacha will be doing this season.”
IGN reports fans at the panel were then shown a clip. They provided a description:
“Davos approaching a businessman in a club, telling the man that “The Triad war is over, I will end it.” The suited man sends a couple of goons to fight Davos, and he easily dispatches them. The man gets up to face Davos himself, and Davos pulls back his arm, punching the man square in the chest with his glowing fist – which is red instead of gold. Steel Serpent has arrived.”
Along with the reveal of Steel Serpent, Iron Fist Season 2 will also see Alice Eve’s Typhoid Mary debut.
Iron Fist Season 2 follows sophomore seasons of Luke Cage and Jessica Jones this year. Daredevil is currently working on a third season and Punisher is expected to drop its second season sometime early next year.
What do you make of the teaser clip? Will you check out season two of Iron Fist?
Marvel’s Iron Fist is expected to begin streaming on Netflix on September 7, 2018.
