“I’m not sure they want it enough?” quipped Finn Jones as he teased Filipino fans, who erupted into joyous screams after being told that they will be the first in the world to watch the first episode of the second season of “Iron Fist.”
The special screening, which was more than a month away from the actual release date of the superhero show on September 7, was held during the Netflix panel at AsiaPOP Comicon Manila 2018 held at the SMX Convention Center this Saturday.
It was the final surprise that Jones and showrunner Raven Metzner prepared for the lucky fans who scored seats inside, that included premiering a teaser that showed Danny Rand wearing the iconic yellow mask worn by Iron Fist in the comics.
Both of them also talked about what fans can expect from the new season, labelling it as “very awesome” and an “evolution” from the first one, before showing a video message from Jessica Henwick, who plays Colleen Wing in the series.
Henwick was supposed to be one of the guests at this year’s APCC, but had to cancel due to “unforeseen circumstances.”
Following an apology, Henwick drew a confused reaction from the crowd when she told Metzner to play a “clip.”
It turned out to be quite a surprise, as revealed by Metzner, who emphasized that this is the first time they had allowed the episode to be watched by fans, much to the delight of those in the panel.
