"Iron Fist" is Definitely Coming

Iron Fist
According to CinemaBlend, details regarding the development of "Iron Fist" have been shrouded in mystery for several years now. They added that there is barely been any news on what to expect since it was announced in late 2013 with Marvel’s other Netflix shows.

In fact, following reports of writers having trouble with the concept, it was rumored in October that the show would be scrapped in favor of a Netflix-exclusive two-hour movie. While Marvel’s Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada outright stated last month that Iron Fist will be seen in some form, now it’s official that the TV format is still happening as planned, as the series has found its showrunner.

Additional reports indicate that Marvel has hired Dexter producer Scott Buck to oversee "Iron Fist." This will be the last solo series before the eponymous protagonist teams up with "Daredevil," "Jessica Jones" and "Luke Cage" in the Defenders miniseries. While there’s still no release date attached, reports there is an official synopsis for the series.

Here’s what fans and curious viewers can expect:

"Returning to New York City after being missing for years, Daniel Rand fights against the criminal element corrupting New York City with his incredible kung-fu mastery and ability to summon the awesome power of the fiery Iron Fist."
While "Daredevil," "Jessica Jones" and "Luke Cage" all feature protagonists with superpowers, Iron Fist has the added mysticism elements.

Just like in the comics, Rand will be able to channel natural energy, a.k.a. "chi," through his fist and enhance his natural abilities. So the audience will get to see more than just classic martial arts moves on the show. Assuming that "Iron Fist" doesn't air until 2017, this means it follow in the footsteps of "Doctor Strange," the Marvel Comic Universe's first project to directly delve into the world of magic. "Iron Fist" has already been alluded to in Daredevil Season 1 with the symbol stamped on Madame Gao’s heroin packets referencing his enemy Steel Serpent.

Now, everyone is hoping that the producer will stay true to the comic character and not change it to suit somebody's selfish "political correctness" and "diversity" agenda.
