IRON FIST Sets SLEEPY HOLLOW And FALLING SKIES' Raven Metzner As Showrunner For Season 2

After the overwhelmingly mixed reaction to season 1 of Iron Fist, Marvel and Netflix TV have announced that showrunner Scott Buck will step down, with Raven Metzner taking over for season 2...

While not a surprise by any means, Marvel and Netflix have announced that Raven Metzner (Sleepy Hollow, Falling Skies) will be taking over as showrunner for Iron Fist's recently confirmed second season. The announcement follows a very rough critical ride for the first season of the show, and with showrunner Scott Buck coming under fire for the program along with his other upcoming Marvel venture, Inhumans, it seems a change of pace was necessary.

Marvel TV executive Jeph Loeb confirmed the news to Entertainment Weekly, citing Metzner's love for the character and his knowledge of martial arts films as the perfect elements to have him helm the show. “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,” he said. “Season One and The Defenders are only the beginning of this fantastic action packed tale.”

This won't be Metzner's first Marvel-related project; he also served as co-writer for the Daredevil spin-off film, Elektra, which starred Jennifer Garner. Metzner was also a consulting producer on NBC's Heroes Reborn, and co-creating the ABC drama Six Degrees.
