‘Iron Fist’ Will Have a New Showrunner for Season 2 #SDCC2017
Iron Fist was only just renewed for season two and there are big changes on the way. Raven Metzner (Sleepy Hollow) is set to replace Scott Buck on the second season of the Marvel Netflix series. The first season was lampooned by critics and currently sits at 17% on Rotten Tomatoes, which may explain the change of direction for season two. Here’s what Marvel’s head of television and executive producer Jeph Loeb had to say on the announcement:
“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.”
THR also claims that Iron Fist will be replacing the entire writers room in preparation for a season two that is much more grounded than the first.
You can catch Iron Fist in the upcoming Defenders which sees him team up with fellow TV heroes: Daredevil, Luke Cage and Jessica Jones.
