It has been recently revealed that the cast of Daredevil: Born Again will display the appearances of Marvel characters Jessica Jones, The Punisher, and Luke Cage.
This confirmation news brings the question of “What about Iron Fist?” to the heart of the fans as they take to social media and wonder what happened to their hero.
Daredevil And The Defenders
When the paths of vigilante heroes Jessica Jones, Daredevil (Matt Murdock), Luke Cage, and Iron Fist meet accidentally, the group acknowledges the fact that their goal was the same: keeping New York safe.
When this realization hit, the group of four decided to band together to form the ultimate superhero team known as The Defenders. Although very different in their approaches and powers, the group became the heroes for the city and kept it safe at their own expense.
For instance, Jessica Jones is a private investigator working in her own agency, Alias Investigations. A patient with psychological PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), Jessica Jones was portrayed as someone against being a superhero as she “doesn’t want anything to do with that.”
Matt Murdock or Daredevil is a blind lawyer who works as a vigilante as well. His disability came with the enhancement of the rest of his senses to the point of being considered superhuman.
Luke Cage happens to be a man with superhuman strength and unbreakable skin who used to be a convict. Having fixed his way of crime, Luke Cage turned himself into a hero for the locals of New York.
Danny Rand also known as Iron Fist is a Buddhist monk who possesses the ability to summon the magical power of the Iron Fist and become a superhero. Usually the bullied kid in the Defenders, Danny Rand is expressed as the one guy who understands how serious a problem can be by Jessica Jones.
Where Is Danny, The Iron Fist?
Since the sequel of Daredevil was announced, fans had an idea that the new series would include the superhero team of Defenders.
However, now that the news has been broken that Daredevil: Born Again would include heroes Jessica Jones and The Punisher with absolutely no mention of Iron Fist at all, fans have been left wondering where their dear little guy is.
Of course, this reaction is understandable considering the fact that The Defenders cannot be a whole team with one of the main members missing!
Hopefully, Marvel will work something out to include Iron Fist based on fan demand.
