Following news of Finn Jones’ casting as Iron First for the fourth of Marvel and Netflix’s TV series collaborations, word comes from Collider Heroes that before we see him there, we’ll get a first look at him in action in the final episode in the preceeding series “Luke Cage”.
The site claims Jones was announced last week because that’s when they shot his scenes for the episode, so the reveal was done before it could be potentially leaked.
In related news, Marvel’s Nate Moore has spoken with Slashfilm regarding the possibility of Marvel’s TV heroes like Daredevil or Jessica Jones ending up on the big screen. Moore isn’t opposed to the idea, but there’s creative issues to work out:
I think it’s possible for sure. It’s interesting that the TV timeline and the film timeline moves so differently because they tell stories so quickly because they have 10 to 22 episodes. So sometimes it’s just hard for those things to line up perfectly.
But we love that idea of ultimately, say a Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Punisher, Agents of SHIELD, maybe there’s a way to get ’em back in there as long as it makes sense for our storytelling and doesn’t prohibit them from telling a story. We say ‘oh, this happened to Daredevil somewhere in the future’ and they go ‘Well, that’s not what the TV show wants us to do.’ We don’t want that to start to feel like there’s friction so we haven’t figured out how to do it but we’d love to do it.”
The “Luke Cage” series is currently targeting a late 2016 bow.
