When that second season will hit Netflix is still up in the air, but it’s definitely coming and with a new showrunner no less. That alone should certainly help course correct the hero’s second solo outing. When it comes to a more heroic get-up though, Jones referenced Rand’s team-up with The #Defenders as an ideal jumping-off point to get the iconic costume on screen.
“It will. And look, I’m not the writer for this show, nor am I the executive producer. So unfortunately these things don’t fall on my head. But from an actor’s distinct perspective, I certainly think that will happen within, hopefully, Season Two.
“I think the way that we’re telling our version of Danny’s story is there’s a real progression. The first season of #IronFist, he doesn’t even really know what a superhero is, let alone identify himself as one. It’s not until Defenders and when he meets the three superheroes, that he kind of goes, “Oh, you can actually do something with these abilities. You can find a purpose.” Which is exactly what Danny had been struggling to find throughout his whole life.
So towards the end of Defenders, Danny has certainly become a lot more grounded, and driven, and more purposeful character. And I certainly think, moving forward into season two, that superhero outfit would be something that Danny Rand finds extremely alluring, and cool, and after seeing Daredevil in his getup, I definitely think he may be persuaded to find one himself. What it looks like, who knows? I’d like to see a mashup of all of the kind of outfits.”
