Netflix already has three major heroes: Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage. And now at last, this corner of the Marvel Universe is complete. Game of Thrones actor Finn Jones will play the hero in the upcoming Netflix series, according to Entertainment Weekly. Jones plays Ser Loras Tyrell on Game of Thrones.

The Iron Fist series will be run by Dexter and Six Feet Under producer Scott Buck. It’ll film in New York and take place in the same geographical area as the other three heroes mentioned above. Eventually, all four heroes will come together for a team-up series called The Defenders. No release date has been set.

Iron Fist is an American martial arts expert who has mystical powers that he learned from a far away, ancient land called K’un Lun. This is going to be a tricky character to realize, because he’s a white guy who masters Asian martial arts, plus he’s a mystical figure who dabbles in sorcery, on the same mean streets as Daredevil, Luke Cage and Jessica Jones. Let’s hope Jones is up to the task, and they can pull this off.
