Finn Jones Lands First Role Since Netflix & Marvel’s ‘Iron Fist’

Finn Jones Iron Fist Marvel Netflix

After the cancelation of Marvel and Netflix’s Iron Fist, lead actor Finn Jones has landed another role in a new series pilot.

The Immortal Iron Fist always lands on his f… Feet, right? Well, that seems to be the case for Iron Fist star Finn Jones, who has booked his first gig following the cancellation of the Netflix and Marvel joint effort.

Courtesy of Deadline, Finn Jones has officially been tapped for the lead role in Fox’s upcoming crime drama Prodigal Son. The show will be produced by Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros Television and features an impressive lineup of on-screen talent that includes the likes of Michael Sheen and Bellamy Young. Deadline describes the project as:

“…a fresh take on a crime franchise with a provocative and outrageous lead character and darkly comedic tone.”

Finn Jones will become Malcolm Bright, who is described as the best criminal psychologist around with an uncanny insight into the minds of serial killers. How, you might ask? Turns out– and get ready for this– his father (played by Martin Sheen) was, in fact, himself a notorious serial killer nicknamed “The Surgeon.” Prodigal Son will follow Malcolm as he teams up with the NYPD in order to catch similar homicidal maniacs. Co-starring alongside Finn Jones in the pilot are Lou Diamond Phillips, Aurora Perrineau, and Frank Harts.

Of course, Finn Jones is best known for his stint on Marvel and Netflix’s Iron First, where he starred as Danny Rand aka the Iron Fist. Jones also reprised his role as Danny on sister shows The Defenders and Luke Cage before Netflix abruptly pulled the plug on all their Marvel television series, which also includes Daredevil and Jessica Jones.

The decision to do so is not without its opponents. Passionate fans of Daredevil have petitioned to have the show revived, going so far as to raising enough money to rent expensive billboard space in Times Square with messages promoting their cause.

Before his two-season stunt in Iron Fist, Finn Jones was best known as Loras Tyrell on HBO’s megahit Game of Thrones.

What do you think about Finn Jones landing another potentially high-profile gig at Fox? Are you glad to see the actor bounce back from Iron Fist? Sound off in the comments below and let us know!

Venom Concept Art Reveals Ridiculous Chest Symbol Designs For Tom Hardy

Previous1 of 22Next

Ruben Fleischer Venom Sony Tom Hardy Marvel Spider-Man Birds of Prey IMAXNew concept artwork for Tom Hardy's Venom shows off several versions of the symbiote chest symbol, revealing the designs for what we could have gotten in the film.

It's safe to say that Tom Hardy's Venom wasn't enjoyed much by critics, but fans seemed to have liked it given how well it did at the box office. The film lacked modern elements of a superhero film and felt like it disregarded storytelling, a tight plot and a convincing story for its characters. Nevertheless, the action sequences and the CGI for the Venom characters were outstanding. Be that as it may, many fans missed the fact that Venom himself didn't feature the classic white spider on his chest, which was a big let-down after several years waiting for a new iteration of the Spider-man baddie after the whole Topher Grace fiasco in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3.

Well, new concept artwork revealed by The Venom Site recently surfaced and it features a white chest brand for Tom Hardy, but not the classic white spider. Nevertheless, it's a more comic accurate look for Tom Hardy than the one we saw in the film. Check out the pictures in the gallery below.

Tom Hardy Venom

Venom follows Eddie Brock as he attempts to revive his journalism career by investigating the Life Foundation only to come into contact with an alien symbiote that bonds with him, granting him powers and transforming him into the titular anti-hero.

A sequel to Venom is currently in the works at Sony Pictures with writer Kelly Marcel. Hardy, Williams, and Harrelson are expected to return, but Fleischer likely won’t be back in the director’s chair as he’s busy shooting the studio’s Zombieland sequel.

Directed by Ruben Fleischer from a script by Jeff Pinkner & Scott Rosenberg and Kelly Marcel, the film stars Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Scott Haze, Reid Scott, Jenny Slate, Ron Cephas Jones, and Woody Harrelson.

One of Marvel’s greatest and most complex characters takes center stage as Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) becomes the host for the alien symbiote Venom. As a journalist, Eddie has been trying to take down the notorious founder of the Life Foundation, genius Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed) – and that obsession ruined his career and his relationship with his girlfriend, Anne Weying (Michelle Williams).

Upon investigating one of Drake’s experiments, the alien Venom merges with Eddie’s body, and he suddenly has incredible new superpowers, as well as the chance to do just about whatever he wants. Twisted, dark, unpredictable, and fueled by rage, Venom leaves Eddie wrestling to control dangerous abilities that he also finds empowering and intoxicating. As Eddie and Venom need each other to get what they’re looking for, they become more and more intertwined — where does Eddie end and Venom begin?

Venom is now available on Digital HD and on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, and DVD.
