Warrior. Monk. Businessman. Loras Tyrell. Iron Fist. Danny Rand. "Marvel's Iron Fist," the "Game of Thrones" alum explains his new character's backstory and mythology.
Bury your mother. Bury your father. Tell me who you are.
I am The Iron Fist.
In the Netflix series, we follow Danny Rand as he comes back to New York after being gone for 15 years. He realizes the world has changed, and his two childhood friends are now billionaires running his father's corporation. They don't believe it's really Danny to begin with -- thinking the real Danny Rand is dead. "Danny just wants to do the right thing," Jones says, "but he has this fire in him." That fire comes from spending the past 15 years in a monastery training to be a warrior and getting a "tattoo" that "is not exactly a tattoo -- it's the mark of the Iron Fist."
Check out the sneak peek:As Jones explains, "There's a force that runs through the universe, the fire of the fist, and Danny can ignite it. Danny has been told his whole life that there's a mythological dark force in the world, and he didn't really believe that they were real." But now the dark force seems to have infested Rand, and it's hard to tell the good guys from the bad.
"Marvel's Iron Fist" is the fourth in Netflix's series of shows leading up to "The Defenders" crossover miniseries. The 13 episodes will be available for streaming starting March 17.
