Season 1


In October 2013, Deadline reported that Marvel was preparing four drama series and a miniseries, totaling 60 episodes, to present to video on demand services and cable providers, with Netflix, Amazon, and WGN America expressing interest.[1] A few weeks later, Marvel and Disney announced that they would provide Netflix with live action series centered around Iron Fist, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage, leading up to a miniseries based on the Defenders.[2] In January 2015, the official title was revealed to be Marvel's Iron Fist.[3] In late November 2015, Marvel Television head and executive producer Jeph Loeb addressed unconfirmed rumors about the series (that Marvel was having a difficult time balancing Iron Fist's mystical elements in its grounded world and that the series would be changed to a film or replaced with a Punisher saying, "There was a lot of speculation about what was going on with Iron Fist, because [fans] hadn't heard anything about it, but there's never been any change at all... What I can say right now is we're very excited about Iron Fist." He added that Marvel and Netflix deliberately wanted to hold off on Iron Fist news until Jessica Jones premiered, in order for that series to get the spotlight since it revolved around a character largely unknown to the mass audience, unlike Iron Fist, and that a showrunner and casting news would be coming.[4]

Also in January 2015, Netflix COO Ted Sarandos stated the series was "eligible to go into multiple seasons for sure" and Netflix would look at "how well [they] are addressing both the Marvel fanbase but also the broader fanbase" in terms of determining if additional seasons would be appropriate.[5] In July 2015, Sarandos said some of the Defenders series would "selectively have multiple seasons as they come out of the gate."[6]

In December 2015, Marvel announced that Scott Buck would serve as showrunner and executive producer of the series.[7]

In January 2016, Mike Colter told Collider that the actor for Iron Fist is already cast.[8]

In March 2016, Marvel officially cast Finn Jones as Danny Rand/Iron Fist.[9]

  • In the comics, Iron Fist comes from the land of K'un Lun.
  • Finn Jones and Jessica Henwick were on the fantasy TV series Game of Thrones.
  • In the comics, The Iron Fist who came before Danny Rand was Orson Randall, a combat veteran of World War I that used "gun fu" (as opposed to Kung fu).
  • Alain Moussi, Christian Howard, and Luke Bracey were all considered for the Iron Fist role.
  • The Iron Fist comic book series was originally inspired by the success of the Kung Fu TV series. The hidden land of K'un L'un was inspired by various stories, including James Hilton's Lost Horizon and tales of Tibet. Much of the original series was inspired by the Golden Age Centaur Comics character Amazing Man, who was a westerner who gained super abilities, while studying in a hidden Tibet'like land. Amazing Man, as his civilian identity of John Aman, was added to Iron Fist continuity in the Immortal Iron Fist series.
  • Had the working title "Kick" during production.
