Iron Fist Series to Feature Comic Book Foe

We’re only a week away from Marvel & Netflix’s Iron Fist season 1, and the stars are making their press rounds.

Stars Finn Jones and Jessica Henwick (who play Danny Rand, the titular Iron Fist, and Colleen Wing, respectively) sat with press at a round-the-clock event in New York and offered an interesting tease.

“There are two characters who come into the second half of Iron Fist season one who haven’t been announced yet,” said Henwick. “It’s so frustrating because they knock it out of the park, but there’s one in particular who fans are… it’s a comic book character who’s not been seen before, and at the end of Iron Fist they set him up in a really interesting way… I think for me, that’s the most interesting relationship on the show.”

Of course speculation is mounting across the internet that said character will be the Iron Fist’s comic book nemesis, Steel Serpent.

We’ll see soon enough.  Its interesting that these characters come in during the back half  of episodes, much like happened with Luke Cage, and while many viewers didn’t like the trade-off, I thought it enhanced the otherwise slow series.

Still, I just want to know if we’ll be getting a costume for our hero.
