Finn Jones Is Back In The Gym, Training For More Iron Fist

OK, internet — Finn Jones might have heard your complaints about his fighting in Marvel’s Iron Fist… and Marvel’s The Defenders. The former Game of Thrones star is already in the gym training for Season 2 of his Netflix series where he plays Danny Rand, the Immortal Iron Fist.

In the first season of Iron Fist, Danny returns to New York after having become the protector of K’un L’un. You’d think the job would involved being at K’un L’un, but he heads home to find himself and his fortune. Danny discovers that the Hand, the sworn enemy of the Iron Fist, has been at play in his life since he was a child. It was their partnership with Wendell Meachum that led to the plane crash that killed Danny’s parents and left him in the care of monks from a secret city that vanishes for a decade at a time.

Production on the series was very quick, and Jones didn’t have a lot of time to study/train, leaving his fight scenes with much to be desired. This could’ve been remedied through the use of a mask and a stunt double… but Marvel choose to only show the mask in the flashback to the previous Iron Fist. He would go on to appear in Marvel’s The Defenders, where again his skills weren’t quite up to some of the other fighters. And the series left him in place to guard the city as Daredevil — well, he’s not doing too hot.

But a photo posted on Twitter shows that Jones is already in the gym and training for Season 2… or possibly for an appearance in Marvel’s Daredevil Season 3. Either is possible. Whatever the reason, the fans will definitely appreciate more training on his part.
