IRON FIST Star Tom Pelphrey Reveals New Details About Original Plans For Canceled Season 3

Like the rest of the Marvel TV shows on Netflix, season three of Iron Fist will never see the light of day. Now, star Tom Pelphrey (Ward Meachum) has revealed what he was told about plans moving forward...

Iron Fist was the first of Marvel's TV shows on Netflix to be cancelled, and while fans were disappointed, it was always something of a weak link. However, season two was still something of an improvement over what had come before, and the stage was ultimately set for a third run of episodes which would have seen Colleen Wing serving as the new Iron Fist. 

Danny Rand, meanwhile, was last seen travelling to Asia alongside Ward Meachum in a quest to learn more about the powers of the Iron Fist. It wasn't the most exciting tease for the superhero (who never really did anything that, well, super), but fans of the series were definitely intrigued. 

Now, star Tom Pelphrey has revealed a little more about what was to come for Danny and Ward, and while he didn't have anything too specific to share, he teased what sounds like a fun adventure for the unlikely pairing. "There was talk of almost like a, well, I think I can say this now, but like a kind of like a Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid kind of comradery, bonding."

Adding that he would "never say never" regarding returning to the role if the opportunity were to present itself, it sounds like he's all too aware of the desperation many fans have to learn about what should have come next as Iron Fist "could not have ended on a bigger cliffhanger."

Sadly, we're unlikely to ever see that happen, though it feels like a missed trick on Marvel's part not to continue these stories in the pages of a comic book. Looking ahead to what comes next, it seems likely that Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige will just reboot all of these characters!

What do you guys think? Do you wish we'd seen Iron Fist season 3?
