Hours earlier before having to be at New York Comic Con 2016 for the “Iron Fist” panel, star Finn Jones posted a video to Instagram announcing he had just wrapped filming on the first season of the upcoming Netflix show.
“Alright, so, we’ve just wrapped on Season One of Iron Fist. It’s 9 a.m. I have to be at Comic Con in like three hours…so I’ll see you guys there. I’m really looking forward to it. Just…need…to sleep. Alright, peace,” said Jones.
Speaking of New York Comic Con, “Iron Fist” was the must see panel at the con. According to multiple outlets in attendance, the line was at maximum capacity nine hours before the start of the panel and was completely full before the event even opened its doors.
Ryan Penagos, Vice President of Marvel’s Digital Media Program took to Twitter this morning to convey his excitement.
