Marvel’s IRON FIST Gets a Showrunner

by Christopher DillardDecember 7, 2015

Marvel’s DEFENDERS show is going to happen soon and they’re one step closer by reportedly hiring Scott Buck as the show runner for IRON FIST, the last show to premier on Netflix.

As of this writing, we know that DAREDEVIL will have 2 seasons, JESSICA JONES landed on its feet strongly a few weeks ago, LUKE CAGE is currently filming, and no one has been cast as Danny Rand, the last missing DEFENDER. Many rumors said IRON FIST was going to be a movie or just dropped completely from the lineup, but Marvel stayed strong.

Now with a show runner hired, it shouldn’t be long before casting begins and the show takes place. Buck is known for being an executive producer on DEXTER and a producer of SIX FEET UNDER.

Our estimation is that IRON FIST will land in one year, the same time as DOCTOR STRANGE, because they both tie into mysticism, but recent comments make the Marvel TV series world feel more distant to the Movie world, even though they exist in the same universe.

Are you ready for IRON FIST to get more news? We are.

UPDATE: Marvel has confirmed Scott Buck as show runner and given us the first synopsis of the upcoming IRON FIST show. Read on!

Returning to New York City after being missing for years, Daniel Rand fights against the criminal element corrupting New York City with his incredible kung-fu mastery and ability to summon the awesome power of the fiery Iron Fist. “Marvel’s Iron Fist” is the fourth series as part of an overall deal between Marvel Television and Netflix, which has already released the critically-acclaimed first seasons of “Marvel’s Daredevil” and “Marvel’s Jessica Jones,” with “Marvel’s Luke Cage” premiering in 2016. All four heroes will then unite in the mini-series event “Marvel’s The Defenders.”
