Marvel has announced that Finn Jones (GAME OF THRONES) will be starring in the upcoming Netflix series IRON FIST.
Jones will play Daniel Rand, who returns to New York City after being missing for years. Marvel teases that he fights the NYC criminal element with “kung-fu mastery and ability to summon the awesome power of the fiery Iron Fist.”
“Danny Rand is a very complicated character. He’s a billionaire New York Buddhist monk martial arts superhero who’s still trying to figure out what exactly that all means,” said Executive Producer and showrunner, Scott Buck. “Finn is able to play all these levels in such an honest, revelatory way that as soon as I saw him I knew he was our Danny.”
“Finn wonderfully blends confidence with vulnerability, making him the perfect choice as he struggles to find his place in the world,” said Executive Producer/Head of Marvel TV, Jeph Loeb. “Now that we’ve found our Danny Rand, we’ve completed our principal cast for the upcoming Defenders on Netflix and we are thrilled to continue to show audiences unexplored corners of the Marvel Universe.”
