By the looks of it, the Marvel’s Iron Fist Season 2 seems to have found its new villain in Lady Gorgon.
According to a report from That Hashtag Show, the second season’s filming will start with a new Showrunner, Raven Metzner who has earlier been associated with Fox’s Sleepy Hollow. That Hashtag Show suggests that the potential new enemy of Danny Rand will be deadly.
As per the report, the new villain Lady Gorgon is a woman called Tonya Parker. She is a regular in the series and is described as “a chameleon adept at playing roles, she inhabits the part that best fits the mission.” The character is also described as a capable undercover operative who has successfully executed various top-level missions in the past.
Lady Gorgon’s first appearance was in Marvel Comic’ Punisher: War Journal where she was tasked to murder Frank Castle. Considering her links to The Hand in the comic books, it is logical that she would be an enemy to Danny since K’unL’un is a sworn enemy of The Hand. While Danny had a major role in severely hurting The Hand in Defenders, she might be game for some payback. The Hashtag Show suggests that Tanya could also be an entirely different character and not even a villain, therefore, until we hear some official statement, this must just be considered a rumor.
Iron Fist Season 2 stars Finn Jones, Jessica Henwick, Tom Pelphrey, Jessica Stroup, Sacha Dhawan, Simone Missick and more. There has been no announcement of a release date for Iron Fist Season 2.
