Marvel’s six Netflix series — Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, team miniseries The Defenders, and spin-off The Punisher — were all canceled in 2018, as Marvel shifted its focus to producing shows for its own streaming platform, Disney+ (per EW). However, at an SDCC panel in 2022, Marvel revealed plans for a new series called Daredevil: Born Again, which would bring new life to the first hero of The Defenders. Additionally, Matt Murdock, aka Daredevil, appeared in Spider-Man: No Way Home, and the original trailer for She Hulk: Attorney at Law also teased the return of Daredevil in that series. With the return of Daredevil, many questions have been raised about the possibility of other characters from the Netflix Marvel shows returning.
In an interview with ComicBook.com, Krysten Ritter said that not only is she ready to return as Jessica Jones, but she’s anxious to do so. “I absolutely love Jessica,” said Ritter, showing much less nonchalance than her character. “And I loved those years playing her. If there was ever an opportunity for her to show up anywhere, I would be the first [to say yes].”
Then, in another interview on The Rich Eisen Show, Mike Colter said he wasn’t necessarily opposed to a return as Luke Cage, but he wasn’t sure how likely such a return would be. According to Forbes, Rosario Dawson, who has appeared in every Marvel Netflix show except Punisher, said at the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo that Jon Bernthal would be returning as the Punisher, then retracted her statement that she heard it from fans .
As for the Iron Fist character, actor Finn Jones has an interesting idea on how to bring the character back.
Finn Jones wants a Heroes for Hire series
In an interview with ComicBook.com, Finn Jones talked about bringing back the Iron Fist/Danny Rand character. “I would love to continue playing this character,” Jones told ComicBook.com. “I think there is a lot of room for growth. I personally would love to see the character reintroduced in an Art Heroes for Hire TV series. I think that would be the most dynamic and fun way to reintroduce these characters. I loved working with Mike and I loved the on-screen chemistry between Danny and Luke.”
The Heroes for Hire are a team in Marvel Comics typically run by Iron Fist and Luke Cage, meaning such a show would require both Jones and Mike Colter. Tying his character to Colter’s character is probably a smart idea for Jones since Luke Cage was significantly more popular than Iron Fist.
Deadline reported that the premiere of “Luke Cage” coincided with a Netflix outage that many speculated was caused by too many people trying to stream the Marvel series. While “Luke Cage” still achieves 87% on Rotten Tomatoes, “Iron Fist” comes in at just 37%. So it’s possible fans will be willing to put up with Danny Rand if Luke Cage rides along.
