So now that we have Finn Jones cast as Daniel Rand / Iron Fist, it’s time for Marvel to fill in the cast and according to the MCUExchange, the below casting calls went out to do just that. Below are the description for four of the series regulars.
Character Name: DEVON
25 – 30 yrs old, male, please submit Asian, East Indian, Pacific Islander, etc., handsome, effortlessly-powerful, an intelligent, thoughtful warrior.
PLEASE NOTE IF TALENT HAS MARTIAL ARTS TRAINING / EXPERIENCE. (Series Regular.)
Character Name: CHRISTINE
25 – 30 yrs old, female, Asian, New York toughness mixed with a businesswoman savvy, a good heart, but with many secrets.
PLEASE NOTE IF TALENT HAS MARTIAL ARTS TRAINING / EXPERIENCE (Series Regular.)
Character Name: WALTER
30 — 35 yrs old, male, Caucasian, intelligent and insecure, brilliant in the office but has a ruthless streak. (Series Regular.)
Character Name: JODY
25 – 30 yrs old, female, Caucasian, highly-educated, logical, compassionate. (Series Regular.)
They’ve also deduced that the names of course are fake and that they equate to other characters from the comics. Devon is assumed to be Davos / Steel Serpent, Christine would be Colleen Wing (to go with Simone Missick who was cast as Misty Knight in Marvel’s Luke Cage), And Walter and Jody would be Ward and Joy Meachum.
It would also be good to note that the Steel Serpent has a tattoo on his chest simliar to the way Iron Fist does. But that symbol has already been seen in the Netflix / MCU on each bag of drugs made by Madam Gao in Marvel’s Daredevil season one.
