While not receiving the warmest of welcomes when it debuted back in March, Netflix and Marvel’s Iron Fist is moving along into its upcoming second season of the show based on the martial arts superhero.
Now there have been new additions to the show between season one and when we last saw Danny Rand on The Defenders. Scott Buck left the show and now Raven Metzner will be steering the ship and Simone Missick will come aboard to reprise her role as Misty Knight.
There is a new addition now in the form of Alice Eve coming on in a supporting role. Now like with most casting announcements for a Marvel project, details as to her character are under tight wraps right now, but executive producer and Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb is certainly excited to have the British actress come along for the ride.
We are very excited to have an actress of Alice’s stature join the cast of ‘Marvel’s Iron Fist. Her exceptional talent brings an intrigue and danger to her character unlike anyone else.
Eve should be familiar to audiences as Dr. Carol Marcus from Star Trek Into Darkness, Criminal, and the third season of Black Mirror, among her many projects.
I’m certainly intrigued, Eve is a good talent and I’m curious as well if the negative response to season one of Iron Fist will help guide it to an improvement when season two drops on the streaming service. Time will tell.
What do you think of the casting? Who do you hope Alice Eve plays? What did you think of Iron Fist season one? Let us know in the comments below!
