News: Iron Fist Season 2 and The Punisher!

The San Diego Comic-Con International 2017 panel for The Defenders was full of highlights, including the screening of a brand new trailer for which a description has already made its way online.

But fans of Iron Fist may be just as excited about the announcement that his standalone series was renewed. According to ScreenRant, the panel confirmed that Iron Fist Season 2 is in the works, and that Misty Knight (Simone Missick) would appear in the series. Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick) will apparently join her, leaving us to speculate that the show's sophomore season could set up a potential Daughters of the Dragon spin-off series with the bad-ass heroines as its focus.

The SDCC panel included an action-packed trailer for The Punisher that hasn't appeared online. We don't know if the trailer will be released in the near future or is being saved for the August 18 premiere of The Defenders, but thanks to Mashable and the following footage description, we now know exactly what to expect:

The clip opened with a shot of Frank Castle in happier times, teaching his young daughter to play guitar. In the present, he's strumming the guitar all alone and looking very, very sad about it.

Cut to some of Frank's recent adventures: running down bikers in rural Alabama, taking out drug cartels via sniper rifle in Juárez, strangling a man to death in an airport bathroom in New York City.

The last of those men pleads for his life in his final moments. "Please, you've killed everyone. The bikers, the cartels, the Cajuns, the Irish, they're all gone," he cries. "What's it going to change if I'm dead?"

Frank looks at him impassively. "Nothing."

Once he's choked the man out, Frank struts out of the bathroom in a black hoodie and leather duster over his Punisher-logo vest. It's a hero shot, but a grim, dark one. Let's just say that fans worried that The Punisher might sand off Frank's rough edges can probably relax.
