Now that Finn Jones has been cast as Danny Rand/Iron Fist, more information will trickling in about the fourth in Marvel and Netflix’s Defenders series.
In a red carpet interview with Comic Book Resources at the premiere of Daredevil season two, Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television revealed that he had promised Clark Gregg that he could appear in Iron Fist.
“Before I get done, I have to make sure that Clark Gregg and Iron Fist get together…I’m not saying Agent Coulson — Clark Gregg has actually made me promise that he gets to meet Iron Fist. He’s a gigantic Iron Fist fan,” Loeb said.
There has not been any formal crossover between any of the Netflix Marvel series and Agents of SHIELD, although there have been mentions such as Matt Murdock’s father fighting Carl Creel who appears in SHIELD, as well as Daisy Johnson and Matt Murdock attending the same orphanage.
Perhaps Iron Fist will finally give us a chance to see our favorite SHIELD director enter the world of the New York street heroes.
