It’s being rumoured that Iron Fist will be joining the MCU movies and that he’ll make his debut in Shang-Chi 2. This is being reported by Geekosity’s Mikey Sutton, and they have a pretty good track record as far as these things are concerned.
Sutton was very clear on one thing in his report on Iron Fist’s debut appearance in the MCU. He will not be in the first Shang-Chi movie, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. He stated that it would be in the second Shang-Chi movie.
It was revealed a while back that Iron Fist’s rights are now back with Marvel after they were with Netflix. Netflix made two seasons of Iron Fist with Finn Jones playing the lead character. It looks like he won’t be back as the character in the MCU.
Shang Chi 2 could see Iron Fist in his MCU debut
Mikey Sutton also revealed in his report that Finn Jones is unlikely to return as Iron Fist in the MCU. Here’s what he said about the upcoming Shang-Chi sequel which will feature – according to Geekosity – Iron Fist:
Shang-Chi 2 is looking increasingly like the movie for Iron Fist to make his cinematic debut. The chances of Finn Jones reprising the role are dim, though. According to my sources, Kevin Feige was not particularly impressed with Netflix’ Iron Fist. Out of all the Defenders series on Netflix, it certainly had the most polarized response by the fans and the critics weren’t exactly knocked out, either. Limited in budget and lacking in the intense and believable fight choreography to pull it off, Iron Fist simply didn’t fulfill its potential.
