British actress Alice Eve has joined the cast of Netflix’s Iron Fist.
Her role is undisclosed at the moment, however, we should expect quite a meaty role for the acclaimed actress. Jeff Loeb’s quote suggests that she may be an adversary or villain of come sort.
“We are very excited to have an actress of Alice’s stature join the cast of ‘Marvel’s Iron Fist,’” said Marvel’s Head of Television and Executive Producer, Jeph Loeb. “Her exceptional talent brings an intrigue and danger to her character unlike anyone else.”
More casting news shall be coming soon since production is expected to start before the year is over. Simone Missick was confirmed to be joining the cast back in July. Production on season 2 of Luke Cage just wrapped, where Iron Fist star Finn Jones and Missick were both filming. It is still undetermined if Luke Cage is expected to make an appearance.
The second season of Iron Fist will follow Danny Rand and Colleen Wing as they take on another battle as the protectors of Chinatown.
More on the story and villains will be revealed in the coming days and weeks.
