Jones revealed this desire in an interview with ComicBook.com, where he said this:

I would love to continue playing that character. I think there’s a lot of room for growth. Personally, where I would like to see the reintroduction of the character would be something like a Heroes for Hire TV series. I think that would be the most dynamic and fun way to reintroduce those characters. I loved working with Mike and I loved the on-screen chemistry between Danny and Luke. I think it’s a really interesting creative place that show can be taken in. I’d love to pick up that mantle again and keep moving this character forward and make the best possible Iron Fist there could be.

The Iron Fist was a Netflix series that debuted in 2017. Jones played the role of Danny Rand, a billionaire and martial artist who can focus his chi into his fist, thereby making it exponentially powerful. The series did not receive much love from fans and critics and it ran for a mere two seasons before Netflix canceled it. Because of this, making an argument for the return of this character in its own show might be a hard sell. Besides, in the comics, Iron Fist usually appeared with other characters.

As a result, Jones’s suggestion of a Heroes for Hire series makes a lot of sense for Marvel to reintroduce the character, if they have any intention of such.

The actor suggested that Iron Fist should be reintroduced in a Heroes for Hire series.

In the comics, Heroes for Hire is an organization filled with superpowered individuals helping strangers for money. The group was usually led by either Danny Rand or Luke Cage and had any of Human Torch, Moon Knight, She-Hulk, and the Ghost Rider as members of the group.

Recently, Disney has made it a habit to bring characters from other Marvel franchises. We have already seen Daredevil’s Matt Murdock, played by Charlie Cox, in Spider-Man: No Way Home, as well as Kingpin, played by Vincent D’Onofrio, from the same series in Hawkeye.

Only recently, Marvel brought back X-Men’s Charles Xavier as well as King Black Bolt from the Inhumans in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Rumors also suggest that Jon Bernthal will return as The Punisher. It’s not far-fetched that Jones’s Danny Rand can feature in the Marvel Cinematic Universe at some point.

If you wish to refresh your memory on Iron Fist, both seasons of the series are available on Disney+.
