CBTVB: Marvel Announces Finn Jones as Iron Fist

By Muuka Muyumba

Marvel’s Defenders has finally cast the final Defender on Netflix: Danny Rand, aka Iron Fist, who will be played by Game of Thrones star Finn Jones.

“Danny Rand is a very complicated character. He’s a billionaire New York Buddhist monk martial arts superhero who’s still trying to figure out what exactly that all means,” said Executive Producer and showrunner, Scott Buck. “Finn is able to play all these levels in such an honest, revelatory way that as soon as I saw him I knew he was our Danny.”

“Finn wonderfully blends confidence with vulnerability, making him the perfect choice as he struggles to find his place in the world,” said Executive Producer/Head of Marvel TV, Jeph Loeb. “Now that we’ve found our Danny Rand, we’ve completed our principal cast for the upcoming Defenders on Netflix and we are thrilled to continue to show audiences unexplored corners of the Marvel Universe.”

The photo above also confirms news that we reported on a few weeks ago, specifically that the Iron Fist character, ‘Joy Meachum’ is part of the casting search for the upcoming series. In the comics, the Meachums, Ward and the aforementioned Joy, are business partners of Danny Rand, occasional corporate enemies of the Rands, and later seek vengeance on Iron Fist after they believed he was responsible for their family-member, Harold Meachum’s death.

Marvel’s Iron Fist’s showrunner Buck will reportedly add Jessica Jones writer Scott Reynolds to the Iron Fist writer’s room.

Marvel has not announced a release date for Iron Fist yet.
