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

With so many alums from Netflix's Defenders series set to appear in Daredevil: Born Again, a potential Finn Jones return as Iron Fist doesn't seem so farfetched.

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.

He needs to work out, get martial arts training, and act better. Because his performance was terrible. After Shang Chi, We need Iron Fist to be able to fight just as well.

@SonOfAGif - do you all not realize what happened with the production of Iron Fist in S01? They had barely, if any time for training or rehearsals. Additionally, scripting was terrible in the first season and the fight choreography was so finely edited that even the mistakes and non-hits are noticeable.

They just need a better story + more time to prepare, and to never hire Scott Buck again.

@SonOfAGif - the scrip and writing had a lot to be desired. The actor can only do so much, but I agree that he should workout and have better training

@dagenspear - I'd imagine it's because Kevin Feige has a long track record of very successful movies and TV shows, and Scott Buck was the showrunner on Season 1 of Iron Fist and the Inhumans.

@Clintthahamster - Not comparing to Scott Buck, but Fiege ain't the one writing or directing or acting the characters in those movies and shows.

@Clintthahamster - I think the writing, directing and acting has more weight. I think people idolize Feige, when he doesn't deserve it.

@dagenspear - Take a look at Feige's IMDB sometime. Sure he's "just a producer" but he's "just produced" about 80% of what folks consider the greatest comic book movies of all time, predating the MCU.

Not saying he's infallible, as Phase Four has shown in spades. But I'll take the guy that produced X2, Spider-Man 2, Winter Soldier, and Endgame over the guy that produced Iron Fist and Inhumans any day of the week.

Just shows them rushing his first season and not giving him enough time to train was a big part of the issue and not him.

I don’t want to get ahead of myself since he could just be collecting comics and seems to be into the fantasy genre…

However if it is true then I’m so down for it!!.

I personally think the writing of the character improved as he went along more or less as did Finn’s performance imo (with LC 2 being the peak imo).

I hope he’s given a proper shot if he is indeed coming back.
