'Unlike anything seen before': Finn Jones teases Iron Fist season 2 with a kickass concept art on Instagram
To celebrate season 2 filming wrap, Jones — who brought the character of Danny Rand to life, and quite successfully — took to Instagram and shared a kick-ass concept photo
Clearly, Marvel TV is going all out with its slew of upcoming releases.
So the bad news is the first season of Finn Jones-starring action series, Iron Fist, failed to grab the kind of attention the studios would have hoped for. But the good news is, despite few hits and misses, the Marvel-Netflix show went ahead with production on its second season, wrapping filming recently.
To celebrate the occasion, series lead Jones — who brought the character of Danny Rand to life, and quite successfully — took to Instagram and shared a kickass concept photo. And here's the best part: alongside the picture, the 30-year-old English actor added a bit of a teaser regarding what followers of the show should expect from the sophomore season.
"After an incredible, long and physical 7 month winter shoot in NY, we have wrapped!" Jones wrote adding, "It's gonna be so weird not seeing all your faces day after day."
"I'm really gonna miss you all — Greatful [sic] to everyone involved, we came at this season with fierce ambition, relentless work ethic, passion and optimism. I think the story we've told and the journey the characters have been on this season is unlike anything seen before," he continued. "I'm proud, exhausted, but above all, ready for all of our hard work to be enjoyed across the world. Congratulations and Thank You!"
Of course, such teasers are going to pump up the hype surrounding the show, especially because it comes from none other than Jones, whose performance stood out even when Iron Fist as an action-centric series couldn't.
According to multiple reports, Iron Fist season 1 failed on several accounts. From the portrayal of one of the most skilled martial artists in the Marvel Universe to the lack of fine-tuned fight choreography; as it turns out, the show missed the mark.
However, with Raven Metzner replacing Scott Buck as the showrunner for the upcoming season, chances are the show might take a different course and for the better.
“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," Marvel executive Jeph Loeb told Entertainment Weekly teasing the next course of action.
