Early looks and the first official second-season trailer for Marvel’s Iron Fist have Netflix fans cautiously excited for the upcoming season – and that’s due in large part to the eagerly-anticipated introduction of Alice Eve as classic Marvel villain Typhoid Mary. Now the streaming service is giving us a look at Mary’s deadly duality, using the show’s official Instagram account to provide viewers another glimpse of writer Ann Nocenti and artist John Romita Jr.‘s highly skilled assassin come to life.
But it’s the tagline with the images that calls into question Mary’s true role this season: will she be a walking trifecta of “big bad” that even Danny (Finn Jones) – or second-season baddie Davos (Sacha Dhawan) – can’t stop?
“You never really know someone until you see both sides.”
As we can see from the official trailer released earlier this month, Danny’s pushing himself into overdrive and working overtime to keep the city safe — with Colleen (Jessica Henwick) concerned for his health and questioning his real motivation for fighting. Looks like Danny’s going to have some “motivation” knocked into him in the form of Davos, a former student of K’un-Lun who trained with Danny and is jealous that he was passed over as the Protector. When Davos claims “The Iron Fist” for himself, Danny’s going to need a little butt-kicking assistance from his friends — and that means the Daughters of the Dragon: Colleen and Misty (Simone Missick).
But that also means a wild card in the mix in the form of Typhoid Mary, which means no one is safe:
Season 2 furthers the transformation of Danny, a character with a fish out of water coming of age story making his way in a harsh new world, battling to work out who he is. This season, Danny has promised that with Matt Murdock gone, he will step up and protect his city. But a sinister plot twist threatens his very identity and he must conquers his villains to protect the town and people he holds close to his heart.
Marvel’s Iron Fist Season 2 stars Finn Jones (Danny Rand), Jessica Henwick (Colleen Wing), Sacha Dhawan (Davos), Tom Pelphrey (Ward Meachum), Jessica Stroup (Joy Meachum), Simone Missick (Misty Knight) and introduces Alice Eve (Mary Walker).
