    Huh, I thought that she'd debut in the Iron Fist show (given her and Danny Rand's long "history" in the comics). Still, this is really cool and she could always appear in the IF show as well.

    I suspect they will debut her her here for a role in Iron Fist.

    I just got and E-mail from CBR about it . I wounder how they'll do her prosthetic arm since it looks closer to human the most others that have bionic and cybernetic arm in the MU

    This actress doesn't look like she's gonna be the damsel in distress type. She looks believable as the tough girl from the block.

    A flesh and blood Misty Knight! *squee!*

    But Deadline says that it will be Misty Knight.

    Looks like they are going with an unknown for this role and she's it.

    So glad that we're beginning to get more casting news!

    I'm not familiar with Simone Missick's work, but she definitely has the look...she's beautiful! Hopefully, she has the acting chops as well.

    It does make me wonder if Colleen Wing's coming also, possibly in Iron Fist?

    Awesome to get confirmation that Misty will be in the MCU! I always liked her as a character. I don't know anything about the actress, but here's to finding out!

    Now the questions are: Will she have a robotic arm at the start of the season? We know the tech exists in the MCU (Bucky, Coulson, Deathlok)
    Or will she get it by the end of the season?
    Who will give it to her?

    Did Iron Man give her the arm? Would be cool if there were a reference to Stark Enterprises or whatever he calls it these days in the MCU.

    Don't know the actress at all, but I guess we're not getting the 70s Afro on her either.

    Why couldn't they just call her Misty though instead of Missy? It's not like Misty is unbelievable as a name.

    Wasn't it said that Missy was just the fake name given out to try and cover up the character being in the show, which evidently didn't work

    It's funny how someone was inquiring if she'd be in Luke's show last night and this literally broke all news sites a couple hours later.

    Start calling out Danny's name like a bunch of cursing sailors , we might get lucky again, lol

    Now, will we get Colleen Wing as well? They're kind of a package deal.

    My guess is the neither Luke Cage nor Iron Fist will be getting a straight up second season like Daredevil is getting. Instead I'm guessing both of their 2nd seasons will just end up being a H4H first season(this is likely where Shang-Chi will debut if not earlier somewhere else but he'd be a 3rd regular main character) and that they'll proceed from there. This will free up Netflix to possibly do a Daughters of the Dragon or a Punisher first season(or both) after the Defenders mini-series has dropped. I could be wrong about all this but I would not be surprised if this all goes down this way.

    Why are people so sure only Daredevil is getting more than one season?

    Is there an official statement from Marvel/Netflix out there somewhere? Is there even a strong rumor? Or are people just making this guess? And if so, why?

    If the other shows are equally as successful as Daredevil, why wouldn't they get multiple seasons?

    Because they have less source material, and because the characters appeared together as opposed to solo a lot of the time in the comics as well (Heroes for Hire)

    And I think there actually was something from a Marvel Head, possibly Loeb, saying that some shows would only have one season. I might be mis-remembering, they may have been talking specifically about pre-Defenders, which would make sense purely for the fact that, like Iron Man had 2 films before Avengers while the others had 1 film, Daredevil was first out of the gate and has most of the cast & crew in place (with Goddard having had a Season 2 outline before he left) so there was time to get a second in.

    If they're aiming to have Defenders out in 2017 then there just won't be time for the others to get a second season before that.

    All comments about them having only one season were thrown out the window when Netflix saw how well Daredevil did and wanted a second season.

    That's kinda what I think. The door's wide open now. If they're making money doing this, and the people involved in the production are open to moving forward, then the only thing that can prevent future seasons of other shows is audience response.

    If Misty has her bionic arm already in the series, many online commenters have guessed

    That she lost her arm during the Battle of New York

    That does tie up some MCU ends up rather nicely.
