During an interview promoting the upcoming Iron Fist series, Danny Rand actor Finn Jones set his sights on a spin-off series that would be familiar to many fans.

"I think it would be awesome to see a series with the Heroes For Hire and the Daughters of the Dragon working together to take down crime," Jones told Nerdist while discussing Jessica Henwick's role as Colleen Wing in Iron Fist.

Jones went on to discuss the controversy that followed Iron Fist when he was cast as Danny Rand, despite a vocal group of fans wanting to see the character recast as an Asian-American.

"First of all, I understand where this frustration comes from," he explained. "I understand the need for diversity in TV and films, especially for Asian actors. I understand that frustration. I agree with it, I stand in solidarity with that voice. We're attacking the issues that people are upset about."

"People from all over the world, all different cultures come from K'un L'un," he continued. "So it isn't just an Asian-specific culture. You have people from Brazil there, you have people from Europe there. It's a multicultural, intergalactic, alternate dimension."

Iron Fist will premiere on March 17 on Netflix.
