Considering the comic book lineage, time will tell how Iron Fist is treated with the presence of actor Mike Colter who currently plays Luke Cage next to actress Krysten Ritter's Jessica Jones as well as his own forthcoming series later this year - possibly November.

Programs Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage all have their leads for their respective shows leading up to The Defenders. And still, fans patiently waited to see who would claim the role of Iron Fist before then, and courtesy of EW, the word is out with Jones now set to lead with Scott Buck serving as showrunner and executive producer.
As matter of minor trivia, Jones is the latest actor to claim the role of Iron Fist long since its heyday as a potential feature film with actor and martial artist Ray Park (Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, Ballistic: Ecks Vs Sever) tapped to star.
