Power Man and Iron Fist is one of Marvel’s most exciting duos in the comics. Seeing Luke Cage and Danny Rand fighting side-by-side is always entertaining, and now that both characters have their own respective shows on Netflix is a testament to how many stories can be told with them. In fact, with The Defenders looming, fans are hoping that a potential Heroes For Hire series could be in the works, bringing Mike Colter and Finn Jones together once again.
However, fans hoping that a spin-off series featuring the duo is currently in development may have to wait for a while. Jones spoke to Screen Geek about his hopes for that series to potentially come into fruition:
“First, I would love to see Heroes For Hire. There’s not been any talks about that so far – but working with Mike is brilliant. He’s a great actor and a great human being. We just have a really good natural chemistry together both as actors – but also as the characters as well. One of the greatest things about The Defenders and the way that Marco Ramirez wrote it was [that] he really wrote great scenes for me and Mike. I think people are going to be really pleased when they see them because there’s this awesome Heroes for Hire sort of connection.”
So as of right now, there are no plans to bring Heroes For Hire to life as a standalone show. For the time being, Luke Cage and Danny Rand’s friendship will remain within the confines of The Defenders alongside their fellow allies Matt Murdock/Daredevil (Charlie Cox) and Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter).
But who knows? Even if Power Man and Iron Fist don’t get their own standalone show in that case, that shouldn’t stop them from crossing over into each other’s series. Iron Fist has already been confirmed for a second season, and Luke Cage star Simone Missick is said to reprise her role as Misty Knight for that season to team-up with Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick). Perhaps Luke can also pay Danny a visit for an episode or two.
