(Warning: The following contains mild visual SPOILERS for Marvel and Netflix's upcoming 'Iron Fist,' along with a few fragments of plot speculation. Proceed with whatever level of caution your innate sense of SPOILER-avoidance suggests is wise.)

Now, Marvel and Netflix's Daredevil might still be freshly ingrained onto our brain-stems, and Luke Cage might still be half a year away, but that doesn't mean there isn't space and time in which to get completely overexcited about the prospect of the next shiny new superheroic Netflix show's arrival. After all, not only is Iron Fist very much on its way, but it seems that images are already emerging from the set.

And you know what that means?

We Already Have Our First Look At Finn Jones As Danny 'Iron Fist' Rand

Which, having arrived on the interweb via intrepid Tumblr-er Delevingned, seem to suggest that we're set to see a distinctly un-business-like Danny Rand — as played by Game of Thrones's Finn Jones — arrive in New York at some point during the series, looking an awful lot like that Australian backpacker you once met who thinks Myanmar has gotten too commercial, and who hasn't paid for a hotel room in two and half years.

Whether Rand will be turning up in town fresh from becoming a mystically-infused superhero in the mysterious city of K'un-Lun or is simply arriving back from a lengthy gap year remains to be seen.

After all, Danny Rand is historically obscenely wealthy — so it's always possible that we're going to see him be more of a Tony Stark-like gadabout slacker who changes his ways rather than a K'un-Lun-raised martial artist since childhood.

Either way, doesn't Finn Jones's hair look nice?

What do you think, though?


What are we seeing in those images?
