The Netflix original series Iron Fist has just locked down another major role for their upcoming second season. According to Variety, actress Alice Eve is set to appear in the superhero series for the next season. Eve is perhaps best known for her role as Carol Marcus in J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness.

As of right now, the actual details surrounding her are under wraps, but a couple days back, it was speculated that Lady Gorgon could play a part in the season to come. Lady Gorgon is known to have a strong connection to The Hand, an organization Danny Rand has a lot of history with in both Iron Fist and The Defenders, so it’s not completely ridiculous that she could be involved in the impending season.

If Lady Gorgon is set to be the villain, Eve wouldn’t be a bad choice. Though of course, seeing that Lady Gorgon is the Punisher’s dead wife, it would be a bit of a can of worms to start intertwining Frank Castle in with the rest of the Marvel Netflix universe, especially since The Punisher is easily the darkest and most violent of the Marvel Netflix series to date..

Alice Eve joins a returning cast that includes Finn Jones, Jessica Henwick, Tom Pelphrey, Jessica Stroup, and Sacha Dhawan.

What role do you think Eve can play in Iron Fist Season 2? Let us know in the comments down below!

    I can’t think of any actress or actor they could cast that would make me want to watch another season of this series…

    • mrneddles

      What if they cast a comic accurate costume?

      • chaburchak

        They’ve had two series now (including Defenders) with no Iron Fist costume at all, so don’t hold your breath for comic-accurate anything…

        • SeanDon

          Well the Defenders took place over what, 48hrs or something. So they still have time to at least have something comic book based.

  • Cancel this foolishness. NO ONE wants another season of iron fist. Probably not even the cast. More DD and Punisher please.

    • Smerdyakov

      You’re getting that.

  • Smerdyakov

    You lost me at “the Punisher’s dead wife”

  • Momitchell

    Just wondering if I’m the only person who thought that Iron Fist was better than The Defenders? And yes, I know that’s not saying much…

  • SeanDon

    While I don’t mind having Alice Eve on screen at all, I’d rather see an article that states “New fighting choreographer hired on for Iron Fist season 2: promises more stuntman based fight scenes due to mask based costume”
