Iron Fist is cast! Finn Jones to play Danny Rand
More on Game of Thrones
It appears Marvel has found its fourth Defender; Entertainment Weekly has confirmed that Finn Jones - known to many as Loras Tyrell in Game Of Thrones - has been cast as Danny Rand aka Iron Fist.
While the latest Marvel / Netflix offering seemed stuck in development limbo for a while, Scott Buck was announced as showrunner in December. The casting of the lead role puts the show on another huge step forward, though it isn't expected to air until 2017, with Daredevil season two coming to Netflix on the 18th March and Luke Cage later in the year. As to the recently announced second season of Jessica Jones and the final team-up series The Defenders, it seems there are a lot of scheduling balls to juggle.
We'll bring more news as we have it.
