‘There’s a lot of room for growth’: Netflix’s Iron Fist Actor Finn Jones Wants To Make Up For Show’s Abysmal Ratings With MCU Reboot Like Daredevil: Born Again

Netflix's Iron Fist Actor Finn Jones Wants To Make Up For Show's Abysmal Ratings With MCU Reboot Like Daredevil: Born Again

Lately, Marvel has been surprising its fans by putting ace after ace on the table, or rather, bringing its aces back in the game. From Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine and Patrick Stewart’s Professor X to Daredevil played by Charlie Cox, Marvel has situated some of its finest superheroes back in the league. And to say fans are happy would be an understatement.

But, this certainly begs the question as to which characters are next in line and what it means for the ones that aren’t exactly fan favorites. Like the character of Iron Fist played by Finn Jones. Will Marvel bring his character back despite the poor reviews his show received?

Whether or not that will happen isn’t definite yet, but despite that, Jones hasn’t lost hope with regard to his role.

Finn Jones believes there’s still hope for Iron Fist

Iron Fist‘s reputation post-release had been extremely precarious with critics and reviewers claiming it to be a bad show and one that had failed to meet their expectations. However, that did not demoralize Finn Jones. In fact, he took his failures in stride and got motivated to do much better in the future.

In a recent interview with ComicBook.com, the actor shared his two cents on the situation and mentioned how he wouldn’t want to be separated from the role anytime soon. “I would love to continue playing the character. I think there’s a lot of room for growth”, he said.

Danny Rand may be the Immortal Iron Fist, but his adventures have come to an end. Netflix recently announced it was cancelling Iron Fist, which stars Finn Jones (Game of Thrones) as the heroic martial artist.

Jones touched on the topic of Marvel reintroducing its superheroes and had a few suggestions for the same. “Personally, where I would like to see the reintroduction of the character would be something like a Heroes for Hire TV series.”

The star observed how it would be “a fun way to reintroduce” both the characters of Danny Rand that he himself plays and that of Luke Cage as well, which is played by Mike Colter in the show. “I think that would be the most dynamic and fun way to reintroduce those characters. I loved working with Mike and I loved the on-screen chemistry between Danny and Luke.”

Jones would love to see his character in Heroes for Hire

In Marvel comics, Heroes for Hire is like a private security and investigation firm that is led by the two superheroes Jones talked about, Iron Fist and Luke Cage. And gradually, it saw the involvement of more such heroes, including Moon Knight and Human Torch.

Keeping the same in mind, Jones seems to be quite optimistic with regard to Iron Fist and believes that he has the potential to give the character his best.

“I think it’s a really interesting creative place that show can be taken in. I’d love to pick up that mantle again and keep moving this character forward and make the best possible Iron Fist there could be”, Jones concluded.

Though Jones talked about him wanting to return to the MCU as Iron Fist, it could either have been a subtle hint towards something that’s already in the works, or it could also just mean that he what he shared was simply his perspective regarding things.

Either way, it would surely be exciting to see Heroes for Hires turning into a Disney+ series in the future. And it would be equally intriguing to see how Jones lives up to becoming the best version of Iron Fist there could possibly be.
