Previously, Finn Jones was cast as the titular character. According to Entertainment Weekly, Marvel has cast Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing. Wing is martial arts expert who runs her own dojo. As Iron fist, aka Danny Rand, returns to his life in New York, she acts as an invaluable ally.

On Game of Thrones, Henwick plays Nymeria Sand of the Sand Snakes. You can also see her playing one of the X-Wing pilots in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Iron Fist will be the fourth Marvel series on Netflix. It will begin with billionaire Danny Rand returning to New York City after years of being missing. Using his mastery of kung-fu, he fights against the criminal element in the city.

Marvel and Netflix had already proven themselves with Jessica Jones and two solid seasons of Daredevil. With Luke Cage up next and a Punisher series in the works, there is a lot to look forward to for comic book fans.

Expect to hear more about Luke Cage casting as it moves long in development.
