Marvel fans may be skeptical of Iron Fist and its bedraggled protagonist, but the internet has already fallen hard for Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick). In Netflix’s new ad for the superhero drama, two thugs try to double-team Wing in a cage match, and she absolutely humiliates them. Here’s hoping she relays some of those wicked skills to Danny Rand (Finn Jones).
Little has been confirmed about Colleen’s exact role in The Defenders, but early photos of her scenes with Danny suggest a bit of sexual tension. When she’s not making eyes at him, she’s only ever depicted as a warrior, so fans can assumedly look forward to many, many Colleen fight scenes.
In the Iron Fist comics, Colleen is a Japanese girl who ends up as best friends with Misty Knight (Simone Missick) and works alongside the Defenders in New York City. Though she doesn’t have superpowers, she’s a trained combatant and, in some comics, wields a 1,000-year-old katana.
Watch the full teaser below.
Iron Fist hits Netflix March 17.
