Los Angeles, Feb 26 (IANS) “Game of Thrones” actor Finn Jones will play the key role in Marvel and Netflix’s upcoming superhero series “Iron Fist”.
Jones is best known for playing Ser Loras Tyrell, brother to Natalie Dormer’s character Margaery, on the hit HBO fantasy series.
He will star as Daniel “Danny” Rand, a handsome, sophisticated and independent loner who returns to New York City after being missing for years to fight against the criminal element corrupting the city with his incredible kung-fu mastery and the ability to summon the power of the fiery Iron Fist, reports ew.com.
The series is the fourth collaboration between Marvel and Netflix, following “Daredevil”, “Jessica Jones” and the upcoming “Luke Cage”.
All four characters are known as Marvel’s “street-level” heroes, who — following the launch of their solo series — will team up to form “The Defenders” in a crossover miniseries event on the streaming service.
“Dexter” executive producer Scott Buck was named as showrunner for “Iron Fist” in December last year.
