I doubt he will. He has shorter hair in recent photos.

Finn looking like Danny Rand ripped out of the pages of the comic



For those wondering if he will have the sense of humour, after doing a google image search for him, half of his pics are him making a funny face lol

In light of the Iron Fist casting, I guess Marvel wanted to cast Charlie Hunnam as Ghost Rider all along lol. Not sure what role Garrett Hedlund would play...

I am so very happy with this decision on all fronts. Danny coming to life.

That is the best thing about this news. It is actually happening. This was my most anticipated as well, though it is going to have to be special to compete with what Daredevil and Jessica Jones have already done.

Finn reminds me of a blend of a bunch of actors - at times and at differing angles Ewan McGregor, Jude Law, Matt Damon, Paul Walker, Heath Ledger, and then as the love child of Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy

This




Plus

Equals

Here is a recent picture of him with short hair from earlier this month

So they cast a white actor to play a white character but the always rational internet wanted an Asian Kung Fu master?

they would've went Koba on the internet if they did hire the stereotypical Asian kung fu master !

another notch on the credibility belt of the internet lol

His hair is still a bit too curly for my liking. I hope he straightens it.

Eh. I can live with that length. It's not all that curly as it is just messy, to me.

The show is going to have Asian Kung Fu Masters anyway. It's unavoidable. I would have rather we'd gotten a fleshed out protagonist Asian Kung Fu Master, rather than just villains or secondary characters.

Is Marvel going to confirm this casting or not?

A lot of fans were leaning towards Charlie Hunnam as Iron Fist. Since that didn't pan out it makes more sense for him to be Johnny Blaze instead. Marvel will confirm it soon.

Given Colter said he was cast a while back, I wonder if Jones has shot some scenes for Luke Cage?

Have there been confirmed reports that Hunnam and Marvel are in talks for something?

This is from another thread talking about iron-fist.

Not to mention the ignoring the character's own contributions to diversity, helping bring down barriers in the 70s with his relations with Luke Cage and Misty Knight, as well as being part of a series responsible for creating multiple new Asian characters ripe for usage in other books. People tend to be willfully ignorant of these facts for some reason.

I think Iron Fist can open up a lot of avenues for Asian actors. When you look at the amount of potential characters in the Iron Fist mythos who aren't white, I mean, Davos, the Thunderer, Sparrow, Prince of Orphans (possibly), Tiger's Beautiful Daughter, Dog Brother #1, Bride of 9 Spiders, Fat Cobra, Misty Knight, Colleen Wing, the other 65 (66?) Iron Fists who are bound to appear in flashbacks, and possibly even Shang-Chi. And most of them are on par or better than Danny regarding martial arts, so it's confusing for me when people so harshly imply he's just another mighty whitey or white saviour.

Danny has the most diverse cast of any of the heroes that are getting shows.

Iron Fist - White Guy
Misty Knight - Black Woman
Colleen Wing - Asian Woman
Jeryn Hoggarth (Probable) - Lesbian White Woman
Luke Cage (Probable) - Black Man
The Thunderer - Asian Man
Steel Serpent - Asian Man
The Deadly Weapons - Asian men and women from different ethnic backgrounds.
All the people I'm forgetting from Kun Lun - Asian
Clare Temple - Black/Hispanic (She'll probably show up since she's in everything)

Most of the time he's literally the only white guy around when he's in his own world (his series or PM/IF) and not Avengering.

Oh, I was just going off the general casting of elder men in Hollywood.

He looks his age to me.

I approve of the casting. Game of Thrones mishandled Loras Tyrell very badly, but Jones has always done a good enough job in the rare occasions he is given the opportunity.

Does it matter? I think it is great an actor's sexuality is becoming more of a non-issue nowadays. Ten years ago, it would be unthinkable to hire a gay actor to be an action lead. Today I rarely see anyone even asking.

Since Marvel still hasn't confirmed anything, I hope we don't have to wait until Daredevil S2 is out.
