The cast and crew of Iron Fist arrived for their season 2 panel in Ballroom 20 at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con and brought some big news with them.
At the panel they confirmed Season 2 will premiere on September 7, making it the next premiere in Netflix’s Marvel lineup. Also revealed during the panel was the identity of Alice Eve’s mystery character. It turns out she’ll be playing the villain Mary Walker aka Typhoid Mary.
Joining the panel was Head of Marvel Television Jeph Loeb, Finn Jones (Danny Rand), Jessica Henwick (Colleen Wing), Simone Missick (Misty Knight), Alice Eve, new showrunner Raven Metzner and stunt coordinator Clayton Barber (whose credits include Black Panther).
According to Metzner, Season 2 will focus on Danny protecting New York City after the presumed death of Matt Murdock.
The panel treated fans to new footage from Season 2, which showed off some of the stunt work done by the actors. It’s obvious the actors had more time to practice complex fight choreography this time around compared to Season 1 which suffered from a compressed production schedule.
Following the panel, Netflix released a new teaser trailer:

Fans of Misty and Colleen’s past team-ups in The Defenders and Luke Cage will be pleased to see more of “The Daughters of the Dragon” featured in this season. A clip during the panel showed the two facing off against Typhoid Mary.
Also returning this season as an enemy to Iron Fist will be Sacha Dhawan’s Davos, now the Steel Serpent.
Iron Fist Season 2 stars Finn Jones, Jessica Henwick, Tom Pelphrey, Jessica Stroup, Sacha Dhawan, Simone Missick, and Alice Eve.
