Game of Thrones star Finn Jones has officially been confirmed to star as Iron Fist/Danny Rand in the new Netflix TV series.
“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 and showrunner Scott Buck 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,” Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb added.
Iron Fist is the final of four Netflix/Marvel shows, which also include Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage.
