A couple of weeks ago a report surfaced saying Finn Jones would play Marvel's Kung Fu master Danny Rand - AKA Iron Fist. That news went unconfirmed by Marvel, until today. I just learned Marvel has officially welcomed Jones to the ever-expanding Netflix side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Here's a snippet from Marvel's press release -
“Danny Rand is a very complicated character. He’s a billionaire New York Buddhist monk martial arts superhero who’s still trying to figure out what exactly that all means,” said Executive Producer and showrunner, Scott Buck. “Finn is able to play all these levels in such an honest, revelatory way that as soon as I saw him I knew he was our Danny.”   
“Finn wonderfully blends confidence with vulnerability, making him the perfect choice as he struggles to find his place in the world,” said Executive Producer/Head of Marvel TV, Jeph Loeb. “Now that we’ve found our Danny Rand, we’ve completed our principal cast for the upcoming Defenders on Netflix and we are thrilled to continue to show audiences unexplored corners of the Marvel Universe.”
Marvel's Iron Fist debut date is TBA.
