In Marvel comics, Iron Fist and Luke Cage are famous best friends who run a superhero business together in Harlem, but nobody really gets along with Finn Jones’ version of Iron Fist on Netflix’s Marvel shows. The Defenders team-up miniseries tried to make Iron Fist a bit more likable, but there’s still a lot of work to do before Netflix can make him as cool or interesting as the other heroes. With a second season of Iron Fist coming at some point in the future, it looks like Netflix is going to try and remedy that problem a little early by bringing Jones’ Iron Fist to season two of Luke Cage—which will premiere before Iron Fist, though we don’t know exactly when.

Entertainment Weekly has a photo of Iron Fist and Luke Cage together, and while they don’t look like they’re having a good ol’ bro-hang, at least they’re in a room together. Who knows, maybe Luke Cage is telling Iron Fist to be less boring. You can see the photo in the tweet below at about 20 seconds. You can also click the link up above to see a static version.


Season two of Marvel’s Luke Cage will premiere on Netflix in 2018.
