Iron Fist showrunner Scott Buck was interviewed by SFX, and in the discussion he talked about why Danny Rand won’t wear his classic Iron Fist suit in the upcoming show.
“There was no good reason we could imagine to put Danny Rand in a costume. Because Danny Rand is still discovering who he is as a hero and where he is going to be, so he’s not yet ready to put on a mask or a costume.”
He then talked about the problem Rand faces with not wearing anything to cover his true identity.
“[A]t the same time he is someone who is rather well known as a billionaire, so he can’t necessarily go out in public and do the things he does without being recognised. It does become an issue for the character.”
Now, lastly, Buck briefly discussed the realism of Iron Fist.
“We’re trying to keep things extremely grounded and real and tell our stories through characters. So the mystical aspect is something we like to hint at, the idea that there is something bigger and larger out there, but we don’t delve into it all that deeply.”
