Marvels Defenders Have Found Their Iron Fist!

Marvel and Netflix's Defenders can now assemble as the final piece of casting is complete, Finn Jones has been cast as the Immortal Iron Fist aka Danny Rand and will fight along side Charlie Cox's Daredevil, Krysten Ritter's Jessica Jones and Mike Colter's Luke Cage.  Hopefully there is room for the Punisher too.

The Game of Thrones star will headline his own series making it the fourth original Netflix series. Before the Netflix heroes team up for The Defenders (I hope they get Stan Lee to write the theme song like the one he made for Defenders of the Earth).

Created by Roy Thomas, Gil Kane, and Bill Everett, Iron Fist is among the many master martial artists having grown up in the immortal city of K’un-Lun. Heir to the Rand Corporation, Danny uses his family’s wealth to help the poor in New York City. Danny has also been a consistent ally for Luke Cage as the pair started the Heroes for Hire business together.

In the netflix series, he'll return to New York after vanishing for a few years,  with his sights set on cleaning up the mean streets with his new found powers, a common bond he shares with his future teammates.

Scott Buck will lead the shows production as show runner. Filming is scheduled to kick on in April, but there's no set date for the show to hit Netflix's streaming service as of yet.
