Netflix's "Marvel's Iron Fist" has tapped Raven Metzner as its new showrunner heading into its second season.
Raven Metzner, whose credits include 2005's Elektra and Fox's Sleepy Hollow television series, will be stepping in to replace previous showrunner Scott Buck.
Iron Fist was given mixed-to-positive reviews from fans, but critics liked it the least of Netflix's four Marvel dramas (the first season averaged a score of only 37 out of 100 on Metacritic). "Raven's love of all things Iron Fist and his extensive knowledge of martial arts films made him the flawless choice to continue telling the adventures of Danny Rand and Colleen Wing", he said.
Heavy snow and rain to hit Canterbury
Bad weather from the front will stretch into Marlborough and northern Otago, while the West Coast can also expect heavy rain. Some localised areas may have significant areas of flooding, especially in areas where drainage isn't so fast.
"Iron Fist" stars Finn Jones as Danny Rand, heir to a billion-dollar corporation that's being run by a hostile former business partner of his father's. Rand turns into the title character after a crash in the unknown city of K'un L'un.
One of the major factors that looks to have influenced the decision to bring back the series was that even through all of the controversies and critical shellacking, Netflix stated that Iron Fist garnered the second highest ratings out of any of the Marvel series' launch weeks when it premiered on the streaming service in March.
Played by Finn Jones, the character will be seen teaming up with his fellow heroes Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage in the Netflix miniseries Marvel's The Defenders on August 18.
