Jessica Henwick on MCU’s Return as Iron Fist: “Never Say Never”
Jessica Henwick was offered a role in Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings but she refused it. The actress took a job with Matrix resurrections, rather. Henwick Matrix The concert has her fans cheering on various action beats and story moments as she teams up with franchise veteran Keanu Reeves, but there’s also a large camp of her fans hoping to see her more in the Iron fist role. Throughout history, Resurrections wasn’t the only reason Henwick didn’t join Shang-Chi. The actress is keen to get another chance with her Colleen Wing character and seems quite open to becoming the Iron Fist herself.
A return for Henwick from his role in the Marvel TV-controlled Iron Fist series for the Marvel Studios-controlled Disney + shows or films doesn’t seem too unlikely. Vincent D’Onofrio and Charlie Cox both recently revealed that they reprise their roles as Kingpin and Daredevil, respectively, from their Netflix shows. “He’s so good,” Henwick said of D’Onofrio. “And yes, Charlie Cox is over there doing his thing.”
As to whether or not Henwick will reprise the role, it looks like there isn’t any news on that just yet. When asked if she would be interested in portraying the MCU’s Iron Fist, Henwick didn’t exactly dismiss the idea. “Look, the way we left Iron fist, spoil alert, Colleen has the power and she’s in a really good place, ”Henwick told ComicBook.com. “I would love to see her again. This character meant a lot to me and really changed my life. And I’d love to see her again someday, but it really would have to be the right place, and the right time, and the right scenario, but never say never. “
Henwick portrayed Colleen Wing in Iron fist, The defenders, and an episode of Luke Cage. It is not yet entirely clear whether the Marvel stories told on Netflix shows are the main continuity canon of the Marvel Cinematic Universe which is controlled by Marvel Studios. D’Onofrio tells ComicBook.com he was tasked with playing his Kingpin the same way he did on Netflix’s Daredevil when he appeared in Hawk Eye, although there were some notable physical differences in character that could be explained by the time lag since he was last since 2018 before appearing in Hawk Eye, which is set for 2024 at the earliest.

After being a part of the Matrix franchise, Henwick might even have a few new moves to show in the Marvel Cinematic Universe if she gets the call to return. “[[[[Matrix resurrections I felt like an amalgamation of all the different training I had had over the years with so many amazing coordinators and instructors, ”explained Henwick. “But what was really new about this time around was the work I had to do with the guns. . I had almost no real, unconditional weapon experience. And we had an amazing trainer, Rock, who made me feel really safe and tried to encourage me to feel like it was an extension of the hand, that I was one with it. . Because if you look at Keanu, I remember the first time on set with my gun, he just came over and inspected it. And there is one effortless aspect that I really wanted to emulate. “
