In case you don’t have time to watch the panel just now, here is more about it, from Deadline:
Today’s panel for the 13-episode first season of the series saw Loeb, Iron Fist himself Finn Jones and showrunner Scott Buck onstage. Fellow cast members Jessica Henwick, David Wenham, Jessica Stroup and Tom Pelphrey.
Rosario Dawson was also on-stage on Saturday in NYC. A veteran of Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cake as Claire Temple, the actress was a surprise guest and new addition to the Iron First cast – to the delight of the crowd. It looks like the Temple character will be getting involved in some fisticuffs herself as Loeb and Dawson teased on stage.
The fourth Marvel series for Netflix, Iron Fist has Game of Thrones alum Jones as once missing billionaire by day and martial arts master and possessor of a mystical force by night Danny Rand. Like many a Marvel hero, Rand is trying to find himself amidst the conflicting responsibilities and burdens of his abilities. Rand “is riddled by contradictions,” Jones told Deadline earlier today.
With the countdown clock and chanting fans that Marvel has had at many a panel, the Iron Fist event started with a montage of Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage footage to get the already energized crowd pumped up. Then the teaser for Iron Fist appeared the big screens. Several clips were shown throughout the panel including a hallway fight scene, a Marvel fave, that sees Jones’ character leave no man standing and Henwick’s Colleen Wing send two giant thugs to the ground in a schoolyard bare fisted street match.
Also on the Main Stage today before the Iron Fist panel began was Erik LaRay Harvey, who plays Luke Cage villain Diamondback on the most recent Marvel series to launch. Kept under wraps until the Cheo Hodari Coker EP’d series debuted on September 30, the actor got big round of applause from the fans.
