Netflix's next superhero 'Iron Fist' gets release date

Netflix is getting another superhero. You just have to wait until March to meet him.

While audiences are still binging on the third Marvel-on-Netflix series, Luke Cage, the streaming service announced that the fourth series will be premiering on March 17, 2017. Iron Fist, which will star Game of Thrones actor Finn Jones in the title role, follows Danny Rand, a man who acquires mystical powers in Asia and returns to New York to fight evil. Netflix also released a first-look image at the show, and a teaser announcing its arrival.

The show has already been the subject of controversy due to the casting of Jones as Rand. Although the character is traditionally white in his comic origins, the story borrows heavily from Asian culture and storytelling. Some fans had hoped that Marvel and Netflix might take the opportunity to reset the character.
