Iron Fist release date is getting closer and closer. Luke Cage has been all the talk for months now but let’s talk about what can we expect from Marvel’s newest series?
Marvel’s Iron Fist
First, Iron Fist is being played by Finn Jones who most of us know from the Game of Thrones series on HBO. Second, there will be a lot of martial arts. Iron Fist has incredible kung fu skills. Third, Danny Rand has the ability to summon the mystical power of Iron Fist.
Since Danny Rand has been missing for years he is trying to reconnect with a legacy as well as his past. He starts fighting (in secret) the crime around his world with the kung fu skills he has learned while he was away. The power of the mystical force know as Iron Fist allows him to focus his Chi. The “Iron Fist” can strike with superhuman hardness and impact, posing no pain or injury to Danny. Summoning the power does leave him physically and mentally exhausted though. He can focus to heal others and give himself psychic abilities to fuse with others.
