One of the big roles Marvel Studios is looking to cast next is Iron Fist, but according to Luke Cage actor Mike Colter he's already been found. In an interview done January 17 at the Television Critics Association press tour, Colter told Collider that Marvel have chosen an actor but are keeping it a secret.
"The actor has been cast, but he’s in a basement somewhere," revealed Colter. "When the time is right, they’ll let him up and tell him where he is. I am [excited]."
Colter, who's currently filming the Luke Cage series for Netflix, doesn't know if he'll appear in the solo Iron Fist series or the recently announced second season of Jessica Jones.
"I’ll get a nice little break, after doing Jessica Jones and Luke Cage," the actor said. "Whether I’m in [his show], I don’t know, but there’s The Defenders."
