Iron Fist's S2 Crusade Will Bring New Challenges, Make Him More Relatable

Iron Fist Season 2 will pick up where Defenders left off: with Danny Rand fulfilling his promise to Matt "Daredevil" Murdock. As a result, Danny will patrol New York City's streets, protecting its citizens from crime. According to star Finn Jones, this -- coupled with his new living situation -- will bring its own set of challenges, but it will also make him much more relatable.

"Well, Danny at the end of Defenders, the last thing Matt said to him before he [died], was that he wanted Danny to protect his city. As we see in the episode of Luke Cage, he's protecting downtown and Luke is protecting uptown. So when we see Danny first in Season 2, he is taking that responsibility very seriously," Jones explained to press at Comic-Con International in San Diego. "He's on the streets, being the vigilante, protecting the streets of downtown New York whilst also he has just moved in his Colleen, his girlfriend."

"So he's kind of at that age, and I'm sure some of you know the experience, you know, when you're just hitting your early 20s and you've just got this new job and you're moving in with your girlfriend for the first time and everything is just finally finding its balance, but with that comes new kind of challenges," he continued. "I think it's totally relatable. Danny is in a very relatable place for a lot of audience members because of that, trying to balance those things."

"I think that Season 2 we took a holistic approach to creating a season of television which we really wanted it to feel to be on the streets of New York. So, in that way, the world of the show is different and that's a big scene change comparatively because we're not in the Rand Corporation," showrunner Raven Metzner added. "We're out on the streets of New York. We brought a really talented D.P., Niels Alpert. Fantastic! Again, it's all about the -- that's the cool thing about this medium, is it's the collaboration. So it's all about the throughline through, so our D.P. learned a lot about action from our stunt coordinator and vice versa and working with the actors and their relationship with those department heads. So it feels like a whole and it's interesting and new."
