Rapper-turned-filmmaker RZA has directed an episode of Marvel Television's upcoming Iron Fist series for Netflix. RZA, who made his directorial debut with the 2012 film The Man With The Iron Fists (unrelated to Iron Fist) directed the freshman Netflix show's sixth episode, titled "Immortal Emerges From Cave."

"Before I started the role, I actually made a playlist on my iPod of songs that Danny Rand would listen to," said Iron Fist actor Finn Jones in a Facebook Live interview with Extra. "It’s a lot of kind of ’90s hip-hop, like De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, Wu-Tang Clan. That kind of music is really what Danny’s jamming to. Actually, we feature that in the series. One of our episodes was directed by RZA himself–episode 6. So, yeah, there’s very close ties with hip-hop music and the Iron Fist series.”

  • Episode 1, "Snow Gives Way" directed by John Dahl
