If you tapped out of Iron Fist Season 1 this summer feeling somewhat unsatisfied, maybe the show’s latest cast member will be enough to make you want to tap back in again: Star Trek Into Darkness and Black Mirror‘s Alice Eve is joining the show for Season 2.
In a statement, Marvel’s head of television and series executive producer Jeph Loeb said: “We are very excited to have an actress of Alice’s stature join the cast of Marvel’s Iron Fist. Her exceptional talent brings an intrigue and danger to her character unlike anyone else.”
As always, that character is currently being kept under wraps. We personally think she might be playing villain Ferocia, one of the humanoid wolves that attacked and killed Danny Rand’s mother in the comics. Or rather, we want her to be playing Ferocia, because how awesome would that be?
“We’re over the moon that Alice Eve is joining us this season,” said Season 2 showrunner and executive producer Raven Metzner. “We think she’s going to be a great addition to an already stellar cast.”
Along with Eve, Iron Fist Season 2 will star Finn Jones as Danny Rand AKA the Iron Fist, Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing, Simone Missick as Misty Knight, Tom Pelphrey as Ward Meachum, Jessica Stroup as Joy Meachum and Sacha Dhawan as Davos.
