Charlie Cox Endorses Jessica Henwick Coming Back as Iron Fist

A lot of people are excited for Charlie Cox coming back to the MCU, and he’s currently working on the Marvel Studios revamp of Daredevil. A lot of fans are curious when the other Netflix heroes will make their debut in the main canon, and while some are expecting recasts, Cox already has a good idea on who could be Iron Fist.

Talking to The Hollywood Reporter, Cox endorsed the return of Jessica Henwick to Marvel fold. When asked if he could give in a good word for Henwick’s Colleen Wing, Cox said:

“Yeah, she’s amazing. She’s amazing. Look, I agree with you, wholeheartedly. I could also say that about a number of people that I worked with not only on Daredevil, but also on the other shows we did there. So I don’t know what they’re thinking, but I will absolutely put in a good word. And you’re 100 percent right about that. [Jessica] is awesome. And I did get a lovely text from her the other day saying that she read the news and was thrilled for me.”

While a lot of people remember Finn Jones as Iron Fist from the Netflix show, the series did also give the power to Collen Wing (her fist glows white rather than yellow).

Though I think Henwick would be a fine addition to the MCU, there are some fans who want to give Finn Jones a chance to redo Danny Rand again, since he was considered to be the least popular Defender from Marvel Netflix.

If you ask me, the character that needs a lot of work is Luke Cage, since his Netflix iteration is more of a black Captain America, rather than the more morally grey, street-smart Luke Cage from the comics.

No release date has been set for Daredevil: Born Again, but you can catch him in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law now streaming on Disney+.
