Though very little has been known about the project for quite a while, Marvel have finally announced who will play the lead in their upcoming TV series, Iron Fist. The man set to play the titular hero is Finn Jones, an English actor most well known for starring as Loras Tyrell in Game of Thrones.
The series will form part of the Netflix arm of the Marvel universe, which so far includes Daredevil, Jessica Jones and will soon see Luke Cage and The Punisher series, too. Iron Fist is the odd one out of these as the character is a mystical martial arts based hero, which might seem at odds with the more realistic, gritty tone of the Netflix shows so far. Still, Iron Fist is set to be included in the upcoming The Defenders series which will unite all these characters.
So, now that we finally know who will play him in his live-action debut, here are 10 facts that you need to know about Danny Rand and his alter ego Iron Fist before he gets his very own show on Netflix.
