Almost all attention in Netflix’s new Marvel show Iron Fist will be focused on Danny Rand (Finn Jones) as he is the titular hero of the story. Rand, a presumed dead orphan has been missing for 15 years after the plane crash that killed his parent returns to New York City to fight for his family country. At the same time, he will have to balance those responsibilities with the responsibility of being the Iron Fist of K’un L’un.
The high-octane kung fu inspired superhero show promises great action and fight choreography, it will not just be from Rand. He will partner with Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick) in the upcoming show. Wing was briefly referenced at the end of Luke Cage as a fight instructor. In Iron Fist, we will get to see her in her full glory. Netflix released their first clip of the movie showing off her skills.
Wing has the potential to be just as big a breakout character as Misty Knight was in Luke Cage, as in the comics she and Knight end up forming their own superhero team, the Daughters of the Dragon. Henwick’s already going to appear in The Defenders, and based on this scene, she’s going to be a great addition to the “Defenders Universe.”
