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.

    I’m a little concerned about the choice. He kinda comes across more as just a pretty boy and not anyone who has ever done anything athletic and this will be a much more physically demanding role than the other net flix shows. But in the past my preconceived notions have been surprised by various actors I can seem him doing some great acting. Iron Fist does have a very shaolin monkor zen feel to. This could be a very surfer bum kinda personality or like Jeff Bridge’s Dude role. I can very much see him doing this excellently, well that and being a little cocky to.
