Con News: “The Defenders” Finn Jones and Jessica Henwick come to Baltimore Comic-Con!

I love the Netflix Marvel Universe…okay, I wasn’t that impressed with the Iron Fist series.  Not because of the acting; that was great.  But because the screenwriting was absolutely abysmal.  I got whiplash from all the character motivational switcheroos, but that was balanced out by all the yawn-inducing RandCorp blah blah.  Luckily, Iron Fist himself (played by Finn Jones) was treated much better in The Defenders, leaving me actually stoked to see the second season of Fist.  Who’da thunk?  Definitely not me after bingeing IF season 1.

You feel the same?  Or maybe you love all things Fist-y? Well, you can tell it to the man himself, because Finn Jones is coming to this year’s Baltimore Comic-Con! And he’s bringing Jessica Henwick, who plays Colleen Wing, one of the best things about the first season of Iron Fist. (The second would be Claire Temple, of course.)

G’head and pump them for Game of Thrones behind-the-scenes deets as well, as they’ve been on that show too.  Finn was Loras Tyrell (R.I.P.) and Henwick was “Sand Snake” Nymeria Sand (R.I.P.)  Find out what it’s like to be on two super-fannish shows when they’re here!

Read on for the full deets!
