Check out this character featurette for Iron Fist with Finn Jones talking about Danny’s character through the series. Side note: looking at the series’ Wikipedia page, it looks like this season will be adapting some of the Immortal Iron Fist run (#17-20 from 2008).
There have been plenty of casting rumors for Inhumans, but the first one to be confirmed is Maximus the Mad, who will be played by Game of Thrones’ Iwan Rheon.

Anything not related to the MCU that I find interesting
Producer Scott Kinberg has “no idea” if they will make another Fantastic Four movie. Honestly, after Fant4stic they would have to be crazy to throw more money at that property unless Marvel Studios produces it with them.
Speaking of troubled Marvel-FOX productions, Gambit won’t start filming until at least 2018 now.
Which of these possible spinoffs from the X-Men universe would you be interested in seeing—Alpha Flight or Exiles?
So I guess The Batman isn’t in as much trouble as we thought. It is confirmed that Matt Reeves is replacing Ben Affleck as director. And in even better news, it is also confirmed that Ben Affleck is still going to be playing the title character!
Color me intrigued: Reportedly, Warner Bros. has begun working on a Nightwing movie set in the DCEU, with Chris McKay (LEGO Batman) in negotiations to direct.
Black Lightning cast its lead: Cress Williams will play Jefferson Pierce, a.k.a. “Black Lightning.” It looks really interesting, especially with Black Lightning having been in retirement for a while before the series starts.
Do you remember Mystery Science Theater 3000? I never watched it, but my wife got me started watching it recently. Anyways, the reboot (which includes Patton Oswalt) is set to debut on Netflix on April 14.
