The last Defender to be cast in the Netflix corner of the MCU is Game of Thrones actor Finn Jones.
Joining Netflix Original Series Marvel’s Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage, Iron Fist will revolve around the titular hero, a New York native who learned the mystical powers of martial arts found in the lost city of K’un-L’un.
Jones, who plays Ser Loras Tyrell on Game of Thrones, has also been seen in British show Hollyoakes. Dexter alum Scott Buck has been opted for showrunner.
While an Iron Fist date is still unknown, expect to see him show up in Luke Cage considering they are superhero besties. The second season of Daredevil drops March 18th, a week ahead of DC Entertainment’s and Warner Bros’ Bamtan vs Superman: Dawn of Justice, with Luke Cage and Jessica Jones slated for later this year.
