Season 2 of Netflix’s Iron Fist is fast approaching. But while Danny Rand’s next adventure is only a short month away, there is very little we actually know about the upcoming season. A full trailer has yet to release, and the two brief teasers that Netflix has released don’t offer much in the way of footage — just enough to get us excited for what’s to come.
We know that Danny Rand will be stepping into Matt Murdock’s shoes to become the newest protector of New York, that actress Alice Eve will play Daredevil villain Typhoid Mary and that the Iron Fist comic book costume may or may not appear — and that’s about it. Now, thanks to a new teaser image, it appears as if we have a bit more information as to the direction of Season 2.
Over the past week, the Twitter account of the series has shared cryptic images of store fronts on the side of the street that tease certain elements from Season 2. We’ve already gotten hints of Sacha Dhawan’s villainous character, the Steel Serpent, and the Golden Tiger Gang. But the latest teaser image points to an actual plot point: the latest store front reads “A Duel of Iron,” which hints at an important confrontation between the Iron Fist and Davos, aka the Steel Serpent.
Season 1 of Netflix brought in Danny Rand’s best friend from K’un-Lun, Davos, to the forefront for a few epsiodes, only to have the season end with the character swearing himself an enemy of the Iron Fist. Now, as we head into Season 2, Davos is set to take center stage as one of the main antagonists of the series. In the comic books, the Steel Serpent is one of the most iconic Iron Fist villains. Therefore, this new teaser image appears to inform us that we will finally see that rivalry play out on the small screen.
It seems that, for the newest season of the series, Netflix is using a less-is-more approach type of marketing, and it’s only making us more intrigued and excited for September.
Arriving Sept. 7 on Netflix, Marvel’s Iron Fist Season 2 stars Finn Jones as Danny Rand, Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing, Sacha Dhawan as Davos, Tom Pelphrey as Ward Meachum, Jessica Stroup as Joy Meachum, Simone Missick Misty Knight and introduces Alice Eve as Mary Walker.
