Ever wondered what the plot of Iron Fist Season 3 would have been? I’m not one of those fans who was that surprised by the cancellation of the Marvel/Netflix agreement. Sure, I loved Daredevil Season 1-3, and the first season of Jessica Jones was ok. Outside of that, there was nothing to write home about for me. Luke Cage Season 2 was better than Season 1, but Jessica Jones got continually worse. Iron Fist, to be fair I didn’t care much for Season 1 or 2. However, I do think Season 2 went in more interesting directions, and Danny was less of a twat, so there’s that.
So what would have happened in Iron Fist Season 3? Star Finn Jones recently spoke to Collider and talked a little of what Season 3 would have held for Danny Rand.
“Raven [Metzner], who was the showrunner for the second season, and I were sure that there was gonna be a Season 3, so we had already devised the whole thing. I was so excited to get into that. It really was gonna be about Danny finally assuming the role of the Iron Fist, fully accomplished, fully charged up, and fully in control of his shit, as well. It was gonna be this amazing story [with] Danny and Ward off in foreign lands as a buddy storyline almost. And then, you had Colleen in New York, isolated with this new power, struggling to come to terms with her identity and with this power. At some point, we would have met again and probably formed this crazy power couple [or] superhero relationship.”
And how it felt to have Iron Fist cancelled before they could develop that third season?
“It’s horrible. It’s like the death of a friend or a close family member. You’ve spent years building this other world within yourself and sharing this other person with the whole world. Usually, with films or plays, you get to see that arc through. There’s a journey. But with ‘Iron Fist’, it was like we just got to the peak. We were just getting there. We’d just turned the show around. We had just done so much great work, really getting the train back on the tracks.”
I’m just not sure. This feels like, ‘damn, they cancelled it when it was just going to get good’. The problem was, it wasn’t good to begin with. So who was there still waiting for things to turn around. I struggled through both seasons simply due to my job. If not for that, I don’t think I would have bothered. Netflix had almost 20 hours with Danny Rand and if things were just about to get interesting after that? It’s too late I’m afraid.
