Quesada is Marvel’s Chief-Creative-Officer and former Editor-in-Chief. He made a name for himself with the Marvel Knights imprint, which brought back prominence to many of Marvels “street level” heroes, including Daredevil and the Punisher, characters already adapted into the Netflix MCU.
Iron Fist stars Finn Jones and is executive produced by showrunner Scott Buck and Jeph Loeb. The show will follow the adventures of millionaire turned hero Danny Rand aka Iron Fist, as he uses his mystical kung-fu abilities to fight crime and corruption on the streets of New York. Historically Danny Rand is one-half of the Heroes for Hire duo with current breakout character Luke Cage. Iron Fist will also join Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage in forming the superhero team The Defenders, scheduled to appear in their own 2017 series.
Iron Fist is currently shooting and set to premiere streaming in 2017.
