Star Trek alum Alice Eve is set to appear in the second season of Marvel’s Iron Fist. Variety reports that the details on her role are being kept under wraps.
The English actress is best known for her role as Carol Marcus in the film Star Trek: Into Darkness, which is the second movie in the Star Trek reboot series. She also appeared in Season 3 of the Netflix series Black Mirror and Lionsgate film Misconduct. Eve will be joining series star Finn Jones along with Tom Pelphrey, Jessica Henwick, Jessica Stroup, and Sacha Dhawan.
“We are very excited to have an actress of Alice’s stature join the cast of Marvel’s Iron Fist,” Marvel head Jeph Loeb said. “Her exceptional talent brings an intrigue and danger to her character unlike anyone else.”
Season 2 will also see Raven Metzner take over as showrunner, replacing Scott Buck, who left the series to work on Marvel’s Inhumans on ABC.
“We’re over the moon that Alice Eve is joining us this season,” Metzner said. “We think she’s going to be a great addition to an already stellar cast.”
Season 2 will follow the journey of Danny Rand (Jones) and Colleen Wing (Henwick) as they set off on a new adventure as the protectors of Chinatown in NYC – where death, action, and surprises await them around every corner.
Season 2 of Iron Fist will most likely be released in 2019, but no premiere date has been set.
