Big Marvel villain and Iron Fist arch nemesis Steel Serpent may have just been accidentally revealed by cast members Finn Jones and Jessica Henwick. While speaking to members of the press, the two starts revealed there were two other yet to be announced members of the cast.
“There are two characters who come into the second half of Iron Fist season one who haven’t been announced yet,” said Jessica Henwick.
“It’s so frustrating not being able to announce them,” added Jones.
“It’s so frustrating because they knock it out of the park,” confirmed Henwick. “But there’s one in particular who fans are… it’s a comic book character who’s not been seen before and at the end of Iron Fist they set him up in a really interesting way… I think for me, that’s the most interesting relationship on the show.”
Yahoo pressed on by asking if one of those characters was the Steel Serpent, which is when Jones seemingly gave it away.
“Maybe that’s what we were just errr… My publicist is looking at me with devil eyes,” Jones said, then laughed. “Hey look, that’s going to be announced very soon so I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s announced before these [interviews] even come to print.”
“I think you guys will be able to figure out who we’re talking about,” hinted Henwick.
Looks like the interview beat the official reveal to print, but hopefully they’re right. One critisim in early Iron Fist reviews is the lack of action, so hopefully a Steel Serpent appearance in the second half will clear it up.
Iron Fist debuts this Friday on Netflix.
