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!
