The Marvel-Netflix series will see Moss reprising her role as Jeri Hogarth, the lawyer we were introduced to in Jessica Jones‘ first season. Hogarth also made an appearance towards the end of Daredevil‘s second season.
“Danny Rand lives in the highest stratosphere of New York’s business society and he’s going to need a ruthless lawyer to help him navigate this alien world,” Scott Buck, the former Dexter executive producer attached as EP and showrunner on Iron Fist, said in a statement. “I’m very happy to have the opportunity to bring Carrie-Ann Moss as Jeri Hogarth into Marvel’s Iron Fist.”
“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,” added Jeph Loeb, executive producer and head of Marvel Television. “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.”
Finn Jones (Game of Thrones) will be playing the titular character, aka Danny Rand, who returns to New York City after being missing for years. Apart from trying to reconnect with his past and his family legacy, the series will see him fight the criminal element corrupting the world around him with his incredible kung-fu mastery and ability to summon the awesome power of the fiery Iron Fist.
Also on board is Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing, David Wenham as Harold Meachum, Jessica Stroup as Joy Meachum, and Tom Pelphrey as Ward Meachum.
Hogarth could become quite an important part of the impending superhero team-up, The Defenders. Her appearance at the end of Daredevil season 2 saw her offer Foggy Nelson, who was coming off a failed Punisher trial and a falling out with Murdoch, a job tackling cases involving vigilantes. It remains to be seen if Nelson will also be popping up in either Luke Cage and/or Iron Fist.
Iron Fist will be hitting Netflix sometime in 2017. But before the kung-fu master hits our screen we’ll be getting the first season of Luke Cage, which will drop on September 30. And as if that wasn’t enough, don’t forget that The Punisher has his own run on the way.
