Since the dawn of the Silver Age, legacy characters have been a staple of superhero fiction, and having a new character step into a well loved roll can open up new opportunities for writers and artists to tell different kinds of stories. In The Replacements, we’ll look back at the notable and not-so-notable heroes and villains to assume some of the most iconic mantles in the superhero genre.
This week, in honor of Mutant Week, we’re looking at the X-Men’s most storied legacy position. That’s right, we’re looking at the women, men, and clones who have at one time or another called themselves Phoenix.
The moment Jessica Jones announced that Carrie-Anne Moss would play a gender-flipped version of Iron Fist character Jeryn Hogarth, it seemed inevitable the former Matrix star would cross paths with Finn Jones’ Danny Rand. And so it is, that Marvel confirms Moss will appear in the first season of Marvel’s Netflix Iron Fist!
Attention now turning from Civil War to Avengers: Infinity War (or whatever they end up calling it), time and time again Marvel brass have tempered expectations as to whether the climactic MCU event will finally bridge the gulf between movie and TV. Not likely, it seems, as writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely reveal the “nearly impossible” challenge in logistics.
No matter how great the divide between Marvel’s TV and movie universe, fans have always quietly banked on Avengers: Infinity War uniting all its live-action heroes in one universe-shattering showdown. Directors Joe and Anthony Russo don’t want to get your hopes up, however, noting “our focus is on telling the stories of the characters that currently exist on the movie side.”
Thus far, first photos of Marvel’s Netflix Iron Fist have given us a pretty good look at Finn Jones’ Danny Rand in full-on hippie mode, but less so that badass warrior fans are hoping for. Now, the latest look is more “The Dude” than The Defenders, but still gives us our first taste of Iron Fist in action.

This week, we're taking a look at the man who, by focusing his chi, can make his fists like unto a thing of iron, Danny Rand, the immortal Iron Fist!
The first photos of Marvel’s Netflix Iron Fist gave us a clearer look at the state of Finn Jones’ Danny Rand, as well a better sense of the production that had Defenders fans worried for years, and now the rest of the cast is going before camera as well. It’s a not-so-friendly reunion, as hippie Danny meets up with Jessica Stroup’s Joy Meachum in the latest photos of Marvel’s Iron Fist.
Marvel’s Netflix Iron Fist wasn’t kidding around with yesterday’s announcement that Jessica Stroup and Tom Pelphrey had completed the cast, given that series star Finn Jones has already begun principal photography in New York. Meet your pre-Iron Fist Danny Rand, as the character returns from K’un Lun, and without any shoes!
Despite all the Defender talk of late, Marvel’s Netflix Iron Fist keeps right on rolling as the next major series to gear up for production. Now that we have our Harold Meachum as well, the time has come to meet Danny Rand’s childhood friends-turned professional rivals, as Jessica Stroup and Tom Pelphrey fill out the Meachum family.
It was Daredevil star Charlie Cox who first let slip that Marvel Netflix teamup The Defenders would start shooting before 2016's end, throwing into question Daredevil Season 3, and now we can consider it official. Not only will Daredevil showrunners Marco Ramirez and Doug Petrie helm The Defenders, but Drew Goddard will take an active position as executive producer.
