It’s been speculated for some time now that Carrie-Anne Moss would reprise her Jessica Jones role as Jeri Hogarth in Marvel’s Iron Fist, which is currently filming its first season in New York. However, Marvel has finally confirmed the news, making this the third Marvel series that Moss’ character has appeared in since debuting in Jessica Jones last year. Per the release below, Hogarth will provide Danny Rand (played by Finn Jones) some much needed help when he makes his return to New York after having been missing for years. For fans of Iron Fist, this isn’t exactly shocking news. After all, Jeri Hogarth is a gender-swapped version of Iron Fist character, Jeryn Hogarth, a lawyer who worked for Rand-Meachum Inc. in the comics.
“Marvel’s Iron Fist,” coming soon to Netflix, just got some extra legal expertise with the addition of Carrie-Anne Moss to the cast!
Moss will reprise her role as lawyer Jeri Hogarth, first seen in “Marvel’s Jessica Jones” before also appearing in the Season 2 finale of “Marvel’s Daredevil,” to provide Danny Rand (Finn Jones) with help as he returns to New York.
Moss proved to play a large part in the first season of Jessica Jones, and her appearance in the second season of Daredevil made for a nice surprise, so I’m happy to see her character continue to crossover into the other shows. Along with the news of her casting in the series, Marvel released statements from Jeph Loeb, the head of Marvel Television, as well as Iron Fist showrunner, Scott Buck, showcasing their excitement over the news that Moss would be joining the series. You can read those below.
“Carrie-Anne has fast become a fan-favorite part of our street level saga, and we share our viewers’ excitement in bringing her into ‘Marvel’s Iron Fist,’” said Executive Producer/Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb. “As Marvel fans know, Hogarth in the comics plays a critical role in the life of Danny Rand so it seems only fitting that Carrie-Anne join in.”
“Danny Rand lives in the highest stratosphere of New York’s business society and he’s going to need a ruthless lawyer to help him navigate this alien world,” said Executive Producer and Showrunner, Scott Buck. “I’m very happy to have the opportunity to bring Carrie-Ann Moss as Jeri Hogarth into ‘Marvel’s Iron Fist.’”
Along with the press release, much like they have with each bit of Iron Fist casting news thus far, Marvel revealed a short teaser image for Hogarth’s involvement in the series which you can view below.
Marvel’s Iron Fist stars Finn Jones as Danny Rand, Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing, David Wenham as Harold Meachum, Jessica Stroup as Joy Meachum, and Tom Pelphrey as Ward Meachum. The show, which is currently without a release date, is expected to debut on Netflix sometime next year.
