Marvel has announced the showrunner and revealed the synopsis for the upcoming Netflix Iron Fist series.
The Netflix Original Series â€śMarvelâ€™s Iron Fistâ€ť has found its showrunner and Executive Producer in Scott Buck (â€śDexter,â€ť â€śSix Feet Underâ€ť)!
Buck previously served as Executive Producer and showrunner of â€śDexterâ€ť for the seriesâ€™ final four years. He has also written for â€śSix Feet Underâ€ť and â€śRome,â€ť among other series.
â€śScott came in with a take on Iron Fist that quite simply knocked us off our feet,â€ť said Executive Producer/Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb. â€śWe always look for the most creative minds in the field to help us bring our heroes to life, and with Scott weâ€™ve found someone that can deliver yet another great series in the ongoing story of The Defenders.â€ť
â€śIâ€™ve always been drawn to writing complex, intriguing characters, and thatâ€™s what most excites me about the opportunity to bringÂ Danny Rand and â€śIron Fistâ€ť to life with Marvel on Netflix,â€ť said Buck.
Returning to New York City after being missing for years, Daniel Rand 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.
Â â€śMarvelâ€™s Iron Fistâ€ť is the fourth series as part of an overall deal between Marvel Television and Netflix, which has already released the critically-acclaimed first seasons of â€śMarvelâ€™s Daredevilâ€ť and â€śMarvelâ€™s Jessica Jones,â€ť with â€śMarvelâ€™s Luke Cageâ€ť premiering in 2016. All four heroes will then unite in the mini-series event â€śMarvelâ€™s The Defenders."
