However, according to rumours yet another DefendersVerse character is soon set to get his MCU to come back and that is Iron Fist who was played by Finn Jones in the sequel of Shang Chi and The legend of the Ten rings.
Shang Chi was different from the mainstream Marvel movies of late and the origin story of the Simu Liu played character won over many fans. It earned a whopping $432 Million at a time when most of the movies were going flop and the numbers were less due to the COVID-19 upsurge.
In the latest interview, Simu Liu has already said that he wants the Shang Chi franchise to expand and what better way to do so than introducing Iron Fist in the sequel.
Both Shang Chi and Iron Fist have a lot in common. Both are extremely talented martial arts experts and have some sort of connection with a mysterious city. Even in the comics, these two characters are often brought together as a duo called The Deadly Hands of Kung Fu.
