Iron Fist Season 2 Trailer Packs A Solid Punch
The second season of Marvel’s Iron Fist is right around the corner and we can’t be more excited. The trailer to season 2 of the Netflix original provides insights into the great improvements made this time. Improved action choreography, addition of characters and costumes and a new action coordinator has fans and critics excited the same. Iron Fist is the story of a young boy who was the lone survivor of a place crash which killed his parents. Found by a group of warrior monks, they trained him in the city of K’un-Lun to be a fierce warrior. He then returns to New York to claim his right to his fathers company and destroy the evil plaguing the city.
Supposed to be one of the greatest martial artists in the Marvel Universe, the first season of Iron Fist was kind of a let down in that sense. Instead of using his great powers to sail through any fight, each encounter was a bit of a struggle. This made the sequences pretty plain, boring and repetitive. With the great power of the Iron Fist, he should have been portrayed as more of a superhero rather than a street fighter, critics argue.
Netflix has finally found a way to address that issue. The addition of action choreographer Clayton Barber is a welcome change. He brings along experience from Creed and Marvel’s critically acclaimed Black Panther. Along with this, the actors have reportedly been training for extended periods of time. The lead, Finn Jones had been specially training months prior to the principal photography on the second season began. This will allow the actors to have a ‘flow’ in their movements, which will seem more natural.
Releasing on September 7th on Netflix, the second season also brings along new elements. What looks like a costume and the ‘Iron Fist Mask’ is something that will add to the identity of the protagonist. This season will also mark the entry of the villain Typhoid Mary played by Alice Eve.
