The teaser opens with a flashback to Danny Rand's childhood; he is ripped away from his mother in a plane crash and lands in a snowdrift, still strapped to his seat. As he blacks out, he sees two monks dressed in yellow leaning over him before the screen fades to black.
The teaser then cuts to present day, where a bearded and bedraggled Danny Rand is strapped to a bed in what looks to be a mental hospital. He breaks out of his bonds, then manages to escape by delivering a punch so powerful that it blows a reinforced steel door off its hinges.
As Danny steps out over the fallen door, the teaser fades to the series logo. It then confirms that "Iron Fist" will bow in 2017.
No official video of the teaser has yet been released, though Marvel has debuted the following teaser image.
