CONFIRMED: ‘Game Of Thrones’ Finn Jones Is Marvel’s ‘Iron Fist’

finn-jonesMarvel & 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…

    Outside of his appearance–he does have the look–I’m not sure about this one. Finn on GoT is more of a brute strength-laden character. I’m not sure he possesses the martial arts prowess that’s necessary to truly thrive in this role. Not saying he can’t expand, but it might take more CG and stunt-doubling than another actor.

    • NDH

      Yeah I wonder how they’re going to pull this off.

  • cultstatus

    Why does the twitter headline say CONFIRMED when this is just a rumor and one that isn’t even yours?

    • EW confirmed it

      • NDH

        And who is EW’s source?

  • Winston M. Walker

    Well, that’s interesting. EW confirms it? yet Marvel and Netflix declined to comment. I was hoping they would have gone with someone with some martial arts skills, instead of just an actor. And of course, if this is true, I’m assuming he has no experience. Not even sure if he will wear a face covering mask, which would allow a good stunt man to do all the fighting.

    • Jake Bucsko

      Iko Uwais was my dream pick. At least SONEBODY who has real martial arts experience. Preferably asian, but hey, gotta appease the base.

      • Winston M. Walker

        Is Iron Fist even that popular that a majority of folks are gonna whine about it being an asian actor? I’m old enough to have read his first appearance in comics, and I always thought they went with a white character because they already had Shang-Chi as a book…

        • Axxell

          I don’t see why both couldn’t have been asian. It’s not like there’s a quota, but whatever.

      • Chris W

        Why preferably Asian? Danny Rand is white.

        • Axxell

          White, blonde and blue eyes. Like a lot of the Marvel superheroes these days…

          • Chris W

            So affirmative action is your solution. That’s really progressive. *rolls eyes*.

          • Axxell

            We’re dealing with made up characters so, not quite…

          • NDH

            How would you feel if all of the Marvel characters were a specific type of race other than yours? Yea, that’s what I thought…

          • Chris W

            Like how all anime characters are asian? Ya I’m not a PC idiot and I don’t care about representation. If they’re asian they’re asian, if they’re white they’re white. Skin pigmentation is so arbitrary, anyone who self identifies as a particular skin pigmentation needs to grow up. The fact you need to make a big deal about it shows your prejudice and small minded you are.

            We’re the human race. There are no differences between colours other than the ones gregarious troglodytes perceive.

          • Axxell

            So if there’s no difference, then it should be no problem if he was changed to be asian.

          • NDH

            My thoughts exactly. He says arbitrary but clearly he’s reneging on his statement.

          • Chris W

            Over your head. Can’t say I’m surprised.

          • NDH

            Very true! It’d be cool to see them change it up. Yes, it feeds into the stereotype. Yes, Iron Fist was white in the comics. But so were all of our presidents before Obama.

      Are you kidding? All the ladies love the Knight of Flowers.

  • Colonious McGraham

    Anyone ever think that it’s racist to automatically assume a martial artist should be Asian.
