In the new batch of set photos from Iron Fist Season 2, Alice Eve's mysterious character can be seen aiding a wounded Danny Rand, who appears to have injured his leg. Unfortunately, the set photos don't reveal much regarding Eve's character, although she does appear to be Danny Rand's ally here.
At the time of Eve's casting, Marvel Television's Jeph Loeb stated, "Her exceptional talent brings an intrigue and danger to her character unlike anyone else." Prior to her casing, That Hashtag Show revealed a character description for the show's latest villain, Lady Gorgon/Tonya Parker. The character was described as "a chameleon adapt at playing roles, she inhabits the part that best fits the mission.”
Given that Eve was the only new casting ahead of filming, it's possible that Eve is playing that very role and may be deceiving Danny in the above photos, though it's hard to know for sure at this point. Fans will just have to wait and see whether Eve's character winds up being a friend or foe when the show returns for its sophomore season.
Although a release date for Iron First Season 2 has not been announced, the series is expected to return in 2019. Iron Fist stars Finn Jones, Jessica Henwick, Tom Pelphrey, Jessica Stroup, Sacha Dhawan, Simone Missick and more.
