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.”

This story is breaking, so we’ll keep you all posted as more becomes known…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
