For quite a while we were wondering if we were even going to get an IRON FIST Netflix show, but then it was announced that a showrunner had been chosen.
Now we have a face for Danny Rand/Iron Fist.
On the heels of this mornings new DAREDEVIL trailer, Entertainment Weekly has officially confirmed that Finn Jones (Ser Loras of GAME OF THRONES) will be playing Danny Rand in Netflix’s IRON FIST.
Jones was terrific Ser Loras in GAME OF THRONES as the grieving lover of a slain king. It wasn’t a showy performance, but it was a solid one. His casting reminds me of how I felt when Charlie Cox was cast as Daredevil. Not at all expected, but for some reason I have a feeling it is going to work out splendidly.
Here is a somewhat recent video of Finn Jones from a comic-con in November of last year:
Note that this video would’ve been shot in the middle of production on LUKE CAGE.
Looks like Danny to me.
