Is Finn Jones Teasing His Return As IRON FIST? MCU Fans Seem Convinced That’s The Case

Game of Thrones and Iron Fist alum Finn Jones may be teasing his return as Danny Rand over on Instagram.

On his Instagram Story, Finn just posted a snap of a Power Man and Iron Fist comic inside of a travel bag, which also has a copy of The NeverEnding Story (which could be another veiled clue) .

The comic appears to be in an acrylic, collector’s display case so he definitely doesn’t seem to be intent on reading it. If a trip is on the horizon for Jones, is he headed to the set of Daredevil: Born Again, which is currently filming?

Marvel just recently decided to make Netflix’s Defenders series canon after previously introducing Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock and Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Thanks to a script overhaul of Born Again, more Defenders actors are set to join the MCU including Elden Henson’s Foggy Nelson, Deborah Ann Woll’s Karen Page, Jon Bernthal’s Punisher, and Wilson Bethel’s Bullseye.

Recently, Marvel Television projects, head of streaming Brad Winderbaum recently shared why the company decided to make the Netflix Defender shows canon to the MCU, stating, “..Flash forward now to Disney+, where we are actually laying out the timeline with tiles on a screen, all of a sudden we’re like, ‘We should just do it. Let’s do it.’ It was also spurred by the redevelopment of Daredevil: Born Again, once we started to really lean into some of the mythology and backstory that was established in those Netflix shows.”

I was asked about this during the press for Echo, and I realized, ‘Oh, it’s not just assumed. People have an active interest and they want confirmation.’ So we were able to do it fairly quickly, and it’s interesting that the service of Disney+ actually became the statement just by rearranging those tiles. That’s our medium to define the canon now, which is wild to think about.

A few months ago during the actor’s strike, Kevin Feige and co. reviewed the completed footage on Daredevil: Born Again under original showrunners Matt Corman and Chris Ord (Covert Affairs, The Enemy Within), and decided that it was necessary to take the show in a completely different direction.

The solution was to bring in Dario Scardapane (The Punisher, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan) to replace them and scrap much of what had already been filmed, essentially starting from scratch. Under Scardapane, the decision was made to embrace the Netflix Marvel shows, which had previously been treated as if those events had occurred in another timeline.

It’s also worth noting in light of Jones’ post that recently, there was a rumor from Daniel Richtman that Finn would return to the role of Danny Rand in an Iron Fist project that would pass the torch to a female lead.

For his part, Jones has previously stated that he wanted to return to the role in order to prove the doubters wrong.

Said Jones, “Of course I would [return]. I’d love another chance. I care about [Danny Rand] deeply. I believe in that character, I believe there is a lot of work that can be done…I love the ability to prove someone wrong. And I want to prove all those [doubters] wrong. I know I have it in me, and I know I can give the Danny Rand performance that fans want.“‘

With a better director and script  to work from, do you think Finn has what it takes to deliver a performance that worthy of Marvel’s Living Weapon? Let us know in the comment section below.
