When Marvel’s Iron Fist returns for its second season on Netflix, announced last night at the Defenders panel at San Diego Comic-Con, it will be with a new showrunner at the helm. Raven Metzner will take over from the first season’s Scott Buck, who is now the showrunner of Marvel’s Inhumans.
Marvel TV honcho Jeph Loeb broke the news to Entertainment Weekly:
“Raven’s love of all things Iron Fist and his extensive knowledge of martial arts films made him the perfect choice to continue telling the adventures of Danny Rand and Colleen Wing. Season One and The Defenders are only the beginning of this fantastic action packed tale.”
At last night’s panel, Loeb also teased a Daughters of the Dragon team-up for Season 2 when he said: “A friend of Colleen’s is coming by and I might get a bit Misty.”
