Marvel has recently announced that Jessica Jones Carrie-Anne Moss will be appearing in the up and coming Marvel’s Iron Fist.
Moss will reappear as the cool-headed lawyer Jeri Hogarth, who was first introduced in Jessica Jones. Hogarth also spread her legal wings in the Season Two finale of Marvel’s Daredevil, “to provide Danny Rand (Finn Jones) with help as he returns to New York.”
“Carrie-Anne has fast become a fan-favorite part of our street level saga, and we share our viewers’ excitement in bringing her into ‘Marvel’s Iron Fist,” said Marvel Television executive producer Jeph Loeb, “As Marvel fans know, Hogarth in the comics plays a critical role in the life of Danny Rand so it seems only fitting that Carrie-Anne join in.”
It’s been a busy year Marvel and Netflix partnership. The first series to surface on the streaming platform was Marvel’s Daredevil, which aired in April last year. Jessica Jones promptly followed suit, releasing last November. The next series to take place in the notorious Hell’s Kitchen will be Luke Cage, starring Mike Colter in the titular role.
The plot outline for Marvel’s Iron Fist is as follows, as shared on the Marvel website:
In “Marvel’s Iron Fist,” Danny Rand returns to New York City after being missing for years, trying to reconnect with his past and his family legacy. He fights against the criminal element corrupting his world around him with his incredible kung-fu mastery and ability to summon the awesome power of the fiery Iron Fist.
No official release date has been confirmed for Iron Fist yet, but with Luke Cage set for release on September 30 2016, it’s unlikely we’ll be seeing Danny Rand in action any time soon, with a 2017 release date feeling most likely at present. The cast, however, comprises Jessica Henwick, Colleen Wing, David Wenham, Jessica Stroup, Tom Pelphrey and Finn Jones as the titular Iron Fist.
