See the original posting on The Verge
Iron Fist, the latest in Netflixs string of Marvel superhero shows, arrives on Netflix March 17th. It should serve just fine as the standalone story of Danny Rand, a superhero trained in mystical martial arts. But the shows story is richer if you know its elaborate setup. Iron Fist is the fourth and final Netflix series leading up to team-up show The Defenders.
The Defenders are the Netflix equivalent of The Avengers, and like Marvels films, they are a massive media investment: the three other superhero shows span four seasons with 13 episodes each. Thats 52 hours of binge watching. Even if youve watched everything, you may need a refresher.
And if youre just joining the program? Well, heres what you need to know.
