Marvel and Netflix have added a familiar face to the cast of Iron Fist today, as Jessica Jones star Carrie-Anne Moss will be reprising her role of Jeri Hogarth. This isn’t terribly surprising, given that she also showed up in Daredevil‘s second season, but it’s still exciting news as it’s yet another connection between the shows that fans can look forward to seeing.
Not much is known about how Hogarth will factor into the plot, but apparently she’ll be helping out Danny Rand, aka Iron Fist when he returns to New York.

Whilst the world's cinephiles eyes are all turned to the mother of all film festivals, Cannes, down under the Sydney Film Festival have just announced their cracking line up. While it's not one of the most prestigious festivals, it's carved a perfect spot for itself on the cinematic calendar in June each year.

Sydney Film Festival of course has its own world premieres of Australian films, and while this year doesn’t have as many as previous years, there’s some exciting works all the same.

Stepping into the shoes of one Danny Rand, the Game of Thrones actor is dressed down in his civvies in these official set photos, and it’s likely that Scott Buck’s origins story will adopt a similar arc to that of Daredevil; introduce the lead hero slowly but surely, before culminating with the money shot of Rand decked out as Marvel’s Iron Fist.
Until such a time, we’ll have to make do with the pictures of Jones flaunting his martial arts skills.
