    I kind of hope that she gets her hair with red highlights instead of a full dye job.

    Pretty good choice and I'm glad they are using Colleen Wing. Hope she does an American accent tho.

    I hope they use more of the fun, well-rounded personality Colleen Wing that was presented in the old H4H books as opposed to more modern portrayals of Colleen as a silent, uber-serious character (which we see with many of Asian females in the media, including Agent May).

    I wonder if her father Professor Lee Wing will appear on the show. And wasn't it revealed her mother was a member of the Hand in the books? Maybe Marvel will use that when it comes to the Defenders as a nice tie-in.

    Do we have confirmation that Misty will be in Iron Fist yet?

    Not sure. I think we are just assuming she will.

    Will be curious to see if Wing ends up being a romantic love interest for Danny.

    So, dangerous question here...
    What kind of outfit would you guys like?

    Traditional?

    Or tight one-piece suit with the zipper half open and pokies showing...?

    The latter by far. Show the Bride how it's done.

    It'll probably be the first one. Easier to pull off in live action and fits the grounded tone they are going for. Though over time I think Marvel will give Misty and her their newer outfits.

    The second one could just as easily fit the grounded universe since it's basically not much different from what Black Widow and Quake wear.

    I imagine her V neck would not be that deep though for...obvious reasons.

    ^Great interview with Jessica Henwick on getting the role of Colleen and being a part of the Iron Fist show.

    Some highlights:
    • She didn't know about Marvel's street-level characters until the Netfix shows were announced and started coming out, which is how she found out about Iron Fist and Luke Cage and the rest.
    • She started to look into the different kinds of properties Marvel was putting out. She heard about Iron Fist and proceeded to reseach his supporting cast to get a sense of who would be featured and what kinds of roles she could try out for. Found Colleen and thought "You can't do Iron Fist without Colleen Wing!"
    • She really wanted to audition for the part so she e-mailed her agent descriptions and character traits of Colleen Wing to look out for as she knew Marvel never releases the characters real names when it comes to the character breakdowns for casting.
    • She really wanted to play Colleen because there of how few Asian-American heroes in comics, and she views Colleen as one of the best.
    • Both Jessica and the panel hope that Colleen being on the show and Jessica getting the role will give Colleen a higher status and more permanent fixture in the comics (like Luke, Danny and Misty seem to have rather than disappearing for years)
    • She initially thought it was weird her and Finn would co-lead the same show after being together on Game of Thrones, but sees it as a positive, because that believable friendship chemistry will show on screen.

    I'm impressed by how ambitious Jessica is. She looked into Marvel, researched and learned about the characters, carefully looked for and went after the part, AND landed the role. Talk about being a go-getter.

    Good for her, she earned a spot! I say her current look is fine for Collen Wing.

    She's awesome! I dislike her in the books but loving the live version. I like that they got an Asian actress to play her despite her looking Caucasian in the books (I didnt even know she was half Japanese until a few years go)

    I'm about halfway through the season and she's without doubt the best thing about this series. I kinda wish the show was centered around her because everyone else is on snooze mode.

    She's the sole reason I continued to push through to the end.
