Iron Fist Colleen Wing Teaser Image Released
Following yesterday's reveal that Jessica Henwick wil be playing the female lead in the Netflix Iron Fist series, now Marvel.com has officially announced the news and released a Colleen Wing teaser image.
We see Collen Wing will be a martial arts instructor.
I've said it before a few times, I haven't been happy with the fight choreography in Daredevil. I'm a bit skeptical what they will do with Iron Fist, especially considering the character is trained in Kung-Fu, which (at least in my opinion) isn't the best (combat Ju-Jitsu), but I'll wait and see.
A martial arts expert running her own dojo, Colleen will serve as an invaluable ally to Danny Rand as he returns to his life in New York. In the comics, Colleen first appeared in MARVEL PREMIERE #19 as one of Danny’s first friends after he left K’un-L’un.
“I’m very excited to have Jessica as our Colleen Wing,” said Executive Producer and Showrunner, Scott Buck. “She’s shown us that she can bring both a sense of quiet strength as well as an engaging vulnerability to the character.”
“Jessica brings both a youthful vitality mixed with a strong sense of authority crucial to the character,” said Executive Producer/Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb. “And as anyone who’s seen her in ‘Game of Thrones’ can attest, she can throw down with the best of them, making her the perfect Colleen Wing.”
In “Marvel’s Iron Fist,” Daniel Rand returns to New York City after being missing for years. He fights against the criminal element corrupting New York City with his incredible kung-fu mastery and ability to summon the awesome power of the fiery Iron Fist.
