Marvel has kept a tight lid on the details for Iron Fist, which is currently filming in New York City. In fact, as of right now, we only have six confirmed cast members for the series. However, that could very well be changing soon enough. Sameer Ali Khan, an actor relatively unknown in American television has recently revealed on Instagram that he will be appearing in Iron Fist over the next three months. Now, here’s where things get tricky: While Khan is an actor, he’s also a stunt coordinator, making it hard to know exactly what his role will be in the series. He could be a recurring character, but there’s also the possibility he’s only working as a stunt double on the show. (After all, Brett Chan has already been confirmed as the stunt coordinator.)
According to Khan’s IMDB page, he has experience in martial arts, which will fit in well with the world of Iron Fist. Khan will be joining Finn Jones as Danny Rand, Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing, David Wenham as Harold Meachum, Jessica Stroup as Joy Meachum, Tom Pelphrey as Ward Meachum, and Carrie Ann Moss who is returning to the Marvel Netflix world as Jeri Hogarth. What do you make of Khan’s comments? Do you think he’s playing a recurring character? Or do you think he’s being brought in solely for stunt-work? Sound off in the comments below!
Iron Fist is currently filming and will (most likely) hit Netflix at some point in 2017.
