‘Iron Fist’ season 2 adds Alice Eve, ‘brings intrigue and danger to her character’

Iron Fist added Star Trek: Into Darkness star Alice Eve, who has signed on for the sophomore season of Netflix’s hit Marvel series.

Finn Jones will return as the protector of Kun-Lun, sworn enemy of the Hand and Eve joins Jones alongside his returning castmembers Jessica Henwick, Tom Pelphrey, Jessica Stroup, and Sacha Dhawan.

“We are very excited to have an actress of Alice’s stature join the cast of ‘Marvel’s Iron Fist,’” says Marvel TV boss and Iron Fist EP Jeph Loeb. “Her exceptional talent brings an intrigue and danger to her character unlike anyone else.”

Eve was recently seen in Joe Wright‘s acclaimed Black Mirror episode “Nosedive” alongside Bryce Dallas Howard and Lionsgate’s film Misconduct.

Iron Fist introduced Danny Rand (Jones) to Netflix’s growing Marvel Universe. Heir to the multi-billion Rand Corp., Iron Fist‘s first season followed Danny on his journey back to New York City after spending his life in training as the protector of the mystical city of K’un-Lun. Danny also played a key role in The Netflix superhero team-up The Defenders, which aligned the Iron Fist with Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage in his battle against The Hand.

Iron Fist’s second season sees Raven Metzner taking over for Scott Buck as series showrunner after Buck departed to work on Marvel’s Inhumans. Metzer previously worked on Sleepy Hollow and Falling Skies.


Here’s the official synopsis:

“In the second season of “Marvel’s Iron Fist,” Danny Rand, The Immortal Iron Fist and Colleen Wing set off on a new adventure as the protectors of Chinatown in NYC – where death, action and surprises await them around every corner.”
