Luke Cage’s Mike Colter Says Iron Fist Has Already Been Cast

ironfistA surprise bit of casting news arrived yesterday as Jessica Jones and Luke Cage‘s Mike Colter revealed to Collider that the actor who will portray Danny Rand on Marvel‘s Iron Fist has already been found.

“The actor has been cast,” he said. “But he’s in a basement somewhere. When the time is right, they’ll let him up and tell him where he is.”

Considering the amount of interest and attention the Netflix series based on Marvel characters receive, it’s surprising to hear the part was cast in secret.

Colter went on to say he is unsure if he’ll appear in Iron Fist, but the two will eventually meet when the stars of all four shows join forces on the eventual The Defenders series.
