When Netflix says they’re filming all their Marvel superhero shows in New York, you better believe them. They did not go to Anzhou, China for Iron Fist!
LOCATION: Anzhou, China (Bayonne Bridge)
SHOW: Iron Fist, S01E08 “The Blessing of Many Fractures”
This location really stood out like a sore thumb. Maybe it’s because I know that all the locations were shot in New York and not China. Or maybe it just doesn’t look like a Chinese bridge. Iron Fist was filmed during repair work on the Bayonne Bridge, which connects Staten Island to Bayonne, New Jersey, which was being done to raise the clearance of the bridge for ship traffic below. Here’s a cool time lapse video of the project.
