Along with Daredevil: Born Again resurrecting the original Daredevil series, new rumors suggest that a new take on Iron Fist is also in the works at Marvel Studios.
Just recently, Marvel Studios acknowledged that Daredevil and its connected shows were officially a part of the canon of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. That has the door open for characters from shows like Iron Fist to also pop up in the MCU. According to movie scooper Daniel Richtman, there are now plans to develop a new Iron Fist series, but with a twist. The new show would reportedly focus on a female lead, and it's also said that the project could potentially be animated.
The report also suggested that Finn Jones, the star of the original Iron Fist, would be wanted to return as Danny Rand for the new series. However, the rumored plan would be for him to pop up for a cameo without serving as the main character. It wasn't stated which character in particular would lead the spinoff, but it's easy to speculate that it could be Colleen Wing, played by Jessica Henwick in the original Iron Fist series. Henwick has previously expressed her hopes to reprise that role in the MCU.
"Look, the way we left Iron Fist, spoiler alert, Colleen has the power and she's in a really good place," Henwick told ComicBook.com in 2021. "I would love to revisit her. That character meant a lot to me and really changed my life. And I would love to revisit her one day, but it would really have to be the right place, and the right time, and the right script, but never say never."
Finn Jones Wanted to See Colleen's Story Continue
Finn Jones also shared his hopes that Jessica Henwick would return, perhaps in Shang-Chi 2, later telling the outlet in 2022, "It would be nice to see Colleen come back and still have that Iron Fist as well... I think it would be cool if she showed up in Shang-Chi and still had the Iron Fist. There's so much possibility that you can do with this from where we left off for Season 2."
Iron Fist was developed for the small screen by Scott Buck. Its first season debuted in 2017, followed by a second season in 2018. Along with Finn Jones and Jessica Henwick, Iron Fistalso starred Tom Pelphrey, Jessica Stroup, Ramon Rodriguez, Sacha Dhawan, Alice Eve, David Wenham, and Rosario Dawson.
Iron Fist is streaming on Disney+.
