Spotted in NYC: Finn Jones as Danny Rand Coming Home

ironfist

It seems that we have now entered the looky-loo phase of production on Iron Fist, which, if nothing else, means that the fourth Netflix series produced by Marvel Studios has officially begun principal photography. As we’re seen time and again, shooting on the streets of New York City looks good on screen, but its a pain in the neck if you’re trying to keep your film or TV show a secret. To wit, the cameras caught a look at Finn Jones as Danny Rand, sadly not in the Iron Fist costume, in what looks like the moment his character turns home to NYC years after the tragic death of his parents.

With Iron Fist finally coming together, completing the prearranged quartet necessary, Marvel Studios and Netflix are now looking to put the band together for The Defenders, the fifth and final series in the Marvel/Netflix deal. So who will have the unenviable task of bringing these street-level heroes together on one team in one series? A pair of people already familiar with 25 per cent of the team: Douglas Petrie and Marco Ramirez, who oversaw the recently completed second season of Daredevil. Under their supervision, the Man Without Fear, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist will team up to take on a threat not one of them can handle alone. (more…)

Luke Cage

HBO’s The Wire is considered to be one of the greatest television shows of all time.  One of the network’s signature Original Programming show was one of television’s most celebrated shows for its characters, writing, and important subject matter.  The show made an American city a living, breathing character.  The show was not afraid to tackle many issues that still plague communities across the country even years after the show left the air in 2008.  Since the finale of The Wire, many shows have tried to recreate its formula, including Fox’s Empire and Starz’s Power.  Some shows have had great success, others have not.  Fear not fans of unique gritty urban programming, Netflix may have the answer for you with a superhero twist, in Marvel’s Luke Cage.

The announcement in September 2015 that Netflix would be taking over UK satirical drama Black Mirror left fans across the world wondering what this could mean for the show. Originally broadcast in Great Britain by Channel 4 from 2011, it presented an image of a dystopian Britain that harshly critiqued many of the flaws in modern western society. Each episode was completely different, with an all new cast and storyline, leaving viewers to piece the world together as the series progressed. (more…)

It seems weird to think that just a few months ago, the rumor mill was churning that Iron Fist the series was going to be abandoned by Marvel Studios and Netflix in favor of a Punisher show. But things are moving quickly now on the fourth Netflix series from Marvel; the show has it’s hero played by Finn Jones of Game of Thrones fame, and now it has its villain. David Wenham, perhaps most famous for playing Faramir in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and for being one of the 300 in the Zack Snyder film, will be playing the villainous Harold Meachum in Marvel’s next eventual hit.

Netflix‘s IronFist has cast the second half of the Daughters of the Dragon. Simone Missick was cast as Misty Knight in the upcoming first season of Luke Cage and now Jessica Henwick (Game of Thrones) has been cast as Colleen Wing for the fourth Netflix Marvel series Iron Fist. That makes at least two actors from Game of Thrones in the series, Henwick and Finn Jones as the lead Danny Rand, could more be on the horizon? (more…)

One week ago today, Marvel and Netflix unleashed Daredevil season two. The praise has been very high, as it was for the first season, with laurels for the performances from original cast members Charlie Cox, Deborah Ann Woll and Elden Henson, as well as newcomers Jon Bernthal and Élodie Yung as key Marvel Universe figures the Punisher and Elektra, respectively. Perhaps you’ve enjoyed the series through to completion, perhaps you’re only part of the way, but in any case you’ve probably had one eye open on all the various Easter eggs and references to the comics, to other properties, and all the other corners of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. How far did you get? (more…)

Marvel Studios and Netflix launched Daredevil season two this past weekend, and considering the hype of including major characters like Punisher and Elektra, not to mention the good willed sewed with the tremendous first season, it’s safe to say it was another hit. Between Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and the building hype for the fall premiere of Luke Cage, and the presently in pre-production Iron Fist, Netflix is where its at for Marvel characters (at least until Civil War comes out), so why not bring other established Marvel characters to Netflix? Hawkeye for example? The man who plays Hawkeye, Jeremy Renner, has some thoughts on that. (more…)
