IRON FIST Teaser Confirms Finn Jones And "Joy Meachum" - Also Hints At Plot
Thanks to this teaser image from Marvel and the official Iron Fist twitter account, it looks as if the final Netflix drama before The Defenders will deal with Danny Rand's quest to regain control of his company from Joy. In the comics, Joy's father and Danny's father are the founders of Rand Meachum, Inc. However, after the death of Wendell Rand and the murder of Harold Meachum, Joy is mistakenly led to believe that Iron Fist is the man responsible. In order to exact revenge on Iron Fist, Meachum employs the Steel Serpent to assassinate him. This begins a series of complicated encounters between Serpent, Danny and Meachum where Danny's name is eventually cleared in the murder of Joy's father and the two become somewhat awkward allies in the management of Rand Corporation.
Marvel's Iron Fist confirms Finn Jones for the titular role and the inclusion of supporting character, Joy Meachum which provides a big clue to the direction of the show and focus on Rand Corporation.
In the origin of Iron Fist, Danny's father and Joy's father embark on a quest to find the mystical land of K'un-Lun, where Wendell trained numerous years prior. With the door to K'un-Lun opening once, every 10 years, Wendell seeks to return and he brings his business partner (Harold Meachum), wife and son (Danny) along for the treacherous mountain expedition (father of the year right here). However, in typical mustache-twirling villain behavior, Harold attempts to kill Randall so that he can have sole ownership of the company. Harold also was in love with Wendell's wife so he was doubly motivated to off Harold.
In addition, Marvel press release officially confirms Finn Jones for the role of Danny Rand. Executive Producer Scott Buck adds, "Danny Rand is a very complicated character. He’s a billionaire New York Buddhist monk martial arts superhero who’s still trying to figure out what exactly that all means. Finn is able to play all these levels in such an honest, revelatory way that as soon as I saw him I knew he was our Danny."
Marvel and Netflix are pleased to announce that Finn Jones (“Game of Thrones”) will star in “Marvel’s Iron Fist,” the newest series coming soon only to Netflix. Jones will play Daniel Rand, who returns to New York City after being missing for years. He fights against the criminal element corrupting New York City with his incredible kung-fu mastery and ability to summon the awesome power of the fiery Iron Fist.
