The internet is abuzz after EW confirmed Finn Jones will be playing the role of Iron Fist in one of Marvel’s latest Netflix series. Finn Jones is most notable for his role as Ser Loras Tyrell on HBO’s hit series Game Of Thrones. Unlike their other Netflix series, Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage, Marvel has been very tight lipped about who will be playing the live action version of Daniel Rand, “Iron Fist”. As of Thursday afternoon, Marvel has yet to confirm this information.
Daniel Rand is the son of Wendell Rand, a man from a fabled mystical city named K’un-Lun, and Heather, a woman from Earth. After losing both his mother and father during a tragic trip to Tibet, Daniel is found by a few citizens of K’un-Lun and brought back to their city. After meeting the ruler of the city, he is apprenticed to Lei Kung the Thunderer, a martial arts master who trains Rand to gain the power of the Iron Fists. After gaining the mystical powers of Iron Fist, Daniel Rand returns to Earth and becomes a crime fighter leading to him teaming up with Luke Cage and creating the Heroes For Hire Firm. Eventually he would become a member of The Defenders, alongside Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Dr. Strange.
No production date has been set as of yet for the Iron Fist series but expect more news soon. What do you think about Finn Jones playing Iron Fists? Leave a comment down below and let us know.
