Well, after much speculation earlier today, Variety are reporting that Netflix and Marvel have found their Iron Fist.
Game of Thrones actor Finn Jones has nabbed the role Danny Rand, who will fill out the team of The Defenders which so far is Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage.
“Scott came in with a take on Iron Fist that quite simply knocked us off our feet,” said Marvel’s head of TV, Jeph Loeb, who will also serve as an exec producer with Buck.
“We always look for the most creative minds in the field to help us bring our heroes to life, and with Scott we’ve found someone that can deliver yet another great series in the ongoing story of ‘The Defenders.’”
Buck added: “I’ve always been drawn to writing complex, intriguing characters, and that’s what most excites me about the opportunity to bring Danny Rand and ‘Iron Fist’ to life with Marvel on Netflix.”
