Marvel Begins to Tease Netflix’s Iron Fist

Marvel is already beginning to tease their live action Iron Fist series which will debut on Netflix some time after their next show Luke Cage which is set to debut later this year.

The company launched a teaser that linked to a confirmation of Finn Jones‘ casting as the title character.

In the official announcement Executive Producer and showrunner Scott Buck said:

Danny Rand is a very complicated character. He’s a billionaire New York Buddhist monk martial arts superhero who’s still trying to figure out what exactly that all means. Finn is able to play all these levels in such an honest, revelatory way that as soon as I saw him I knew he was our Danny.

Executive Producer/Head of Marvel TV, Jeph Loeb also said:

Finn wonderfully blends confidence with vulnerability, making him the perfect choice as he struggles to find his place in the world. Now that we’ve found our Danny Rand, we’ve completed our principal cast for the upcoming Defenders on Netflix and we are thrilled to continue to show audiences unexplored corners of the Marvel Universe.
