Marvel’s Iron Fist has confirmed the casting of Finn Jones (Game of Thrones) as Danny Rand aka Iron Fist.
Jones will play Daniel Rand, who returns to New York City after being missing for years. He fights against the criminal element corrupting New York City with his incredible kung-fu mastery and ability to summon the awesome power of the fiery Iron Fist.
We previously reported on the strong rumours regarding this casting of the lead a few weeks back but now we have pretty, pretty Tweets as confirmation.

Showrunner Scott Buck had this to say.
“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.”
Marvel TV Supremo Jeph Loeb added this:
“Finn wonderfully blends confidence with vulnerability, making him the perfect choice as he struggles to find his place in the world. 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.”
