Star Trek Into Darkness‘ Alice Eve has been cast on the second season of Netflix‘s Iron Fist.
Iron Fist is the story of Danny Rand (Finn Jones), “the heir to the multi-billion dollar Rand Corp. who returns to New York after training in martial arts for years in the mysterious city of K’un-Lun. Through his training, he was chosen to be the living weapon known as the Iron Fist, which allows him to channel his chi energy into his fists.”
“We are very excited to have an actress of Alice’s stature join the cast of Marvel‘s Iron Fist,” said Marvel‘s head of television and series executive producer Jeph Loeb. “Her exceptional talent brings an intrigue and danger to her character unlike anyone else.”
