Marvel & Netflix upcoming Iron Fist series is gearing up to go into production but beyond learning that Scott Buck would be the showrunner, details about the series have been fairly scare at the moment. Primarily when it comes to who will be the series leading man and final member of The Defenders. However, there is a new rumor today that could point towards a certain Game Of Thrones actor having landed that role. According to The Hashtag Show, who have had some reliable info on Marvel TV casting in the past, their sources are telling them that Finn Jones is Marvel’s Iron Fist.
This bit of casting is currently an unconfirmed rumor at the moment but I have personally heard that Iron Fist kicks off production in April. So, whether this ends up being true or not, we should expect some official casting news and to find out the answer sometime in the next month or so.
UPDATE: Well, that was fast. Ladies and gentlemen, meet your Iron Fist aka The Living Weapon! Entertainment Weekly has confirmed that Finn Jones has indeed landed the role and will be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Daniel Rand. The character is described as “handsome and sophisticated, independent and a loner”. Sound off with your thoughts on this casting in the comments section below. More details coming soon…
