This Fan Reimagines Aaron Taylor-johnson As The Next Iron Fist In The Marvel Cinematic Universe

Apparently, this amazing, costume-accurate art piece was created by a Marvel fan who is a huge fan of Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s role as Iron Fist in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

I was inspired to create a jaw-dropping piece of fan art by artist @clements.ink on Instagram depicting the Avengers: Age of Ultron actor as the new Danny Rand/Iron Fist in the Marvel Universe after cosplayer and fan @bobbincolin was asked who would be a good replacement for actor Finn Jones from Netflix’s show.

In response to the cosplayer’s suggestion, @clements.ink designed a Marvel Comics-accurate costume for Taylor-Johnson that included the Defender’s signature bandanna mask, green jumpsuit, and glowing gold fists, which were all inspired by the comic book.

Marvel premiered Iron Fist in the pages of Marvel Premiere #15 (May 1974) as a character created by Roy Thomas and Gil Kane.

In order to train in martial arts, the character depicted in the film, Danny Rand, spent some time as a boy in the mystical city of K’un-Lun.

Danny returns to Earth to avenge the death of his parents, using the power of his chi to turn his hands into mystical weapons of iron in order to avenge their death rather than accept immortality.

In 2017, Netflix announced the release of Iron Fist, starring Game of Thrones actor Jones as the title character Danny Rand.

There was little critical praise for Iron Fist’s first season, unlike previous Marvel Netflix shows like Daredevil and Jessica Jones that have enjoyed great critical receptions despite strong viewing numbers, unlike Daredevil and Jessica Jones.

Jones’s performance as well as the series’ storyline were panned by critics and audiences alike. There was a shift in season 2 of Iron Fist, as Danny lost his chi abilities, which were transferred to his martial artist girlfriend, Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick).

Critics welcomed the change in the narrative and the improved fight sequences in season 2, but after one month, Netflix canceled Iron Fist as part of its plan to phase out all Marvel shows by the end of 2018.

Previously, Jones had shared details regarding the possibility of a third season. “I was so excited to be able to play a part in that,” the actor said.

There was a real possibility that Danny would take on the role of Iron Fist for the first time, fully competent, fully charged, and in absolute control of himself.

As it turned out, it was gonna be an amazing story that was supposed to feature Danny and Ward off in foreign lands as a buddy storyline. Then, there was Colleen who was alone in New York, unable to come to terms with her identity and her new power.”

As of right now, there is no official word from Marvel Studios about Iron Fist’s return to the MCU, but Taylor-Johnson is switching from playing Quicksilver in Age of Ultron to playing Spider-Man’s nemesis Kraven in Sony’s Kraven the Hunter stand-alone film, set for release in 2023.

There are currently two seasons of Iron Fist available to stream on Disney+, seasons one and two.
