The Matrix Resurrections star Jessica Henwick would love to reprise her Iron Fist role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Netflix’s corner of the Marvel Universe is having a resurgence after the shows were canceled a few years ago. On Hawkeye, we got to see the return of Vincent D’Onofrio as Kingpin, and in Spider-Man: No Way Home, Charlie Cox played Matt Murdock once again. Former Iron Fist star Jessica Henwick has been busy promoting The Matrix Resurrections but shared that she was also up for a role in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
Jessica Henwick later revealed that part of why she turned down the Marvel role was because she knew Charlie Cox was coming back as Daredevil. While speaking with ComicBook.com, Henwick told the site she hopes to return as Colleen Wing from Iron Fist down the line under the right circumstances:
“Look, the way we left Iron Fist, spoiler alert, Colleen has the power and she’s in a really good place. I would love to revisit her. That character meant a lot to me and really changed my life. And I would love to revisit her one day, but it would really have to be the right place, and the right time, and the right script, but never say never.”
Here’s the official synopsis for Netflix’s Iron Fist series:
Iron Fist Season 2 features Danny Rand (Finn Jones) as he fights against the criminal element corrupting New York City with his kung-fu mastery and ability to summon the awesome power of the fiery Iron Fist.
Season 2 furthers the transformation of Danny , a character with a fish out of water coming of age story making his way in a harsh new world, battling to work out who he is. This season, Danny has promised that with Matt Murdock gone, he will step up and protect his city. But a sinister plot twist threatens his very identity and he must conquers his villains to protect the town and people he holds close to his heart.
