Marvel’s Iron Fist has remained true to its comic book origins in the face of cries of whitewashing – and pleas for making its central character, Danny Rand, Asian American.

In remaining true to its origin and introducing diverse key characters (which the comic did as well), Iron Fist may be the most diverse of the Netflix Marvel series so far.

It’s also a lot of fun – as long as you don’t take it as seriously as Netflix’s other Marvel shows.

Netflix’s final Defender, Iron Fist, made his debut at New York Comic-Con 2016 as the show’s first teaser trailer was screened.

There are few glimpses of K’un-Lun – the Shangri-la-like hidden Asian community where Danny Rand (Finn Jones) was the only white person to learn their martial arts and achieve the ultimate skill – the Iron Fist. We do see, briefly, Lei Kung, his teacher.

In what appears to be a signature bit in Netflix’s Marvel series, there is what looks like Danny’s taking on a corridor full of opponents. (It looks pretty spiffy).

Iron Fist premieres on March 17, 2017. check out the teaser after the break.
