Looks like the final two series regulars have been found for the Netflix original series "Marvel's Iron Fist."

According to Variety, "90210" alum Jessica Stroup and Tom Pelphrey ("Banshee," "Guiding Light") have been cast in the upcoming superhero series. Stroup will play the series regular role of Joy Meachum, while Pelphrey will play her on-screen brother, Ward Meachum.

As IGN reports, Joy is responsible for the success of Rand Industries, along with her brother Ward. But their role and work at the company gets flipped upside down when Danny Rand returns after years missing.

If you are familiar with the "Iron Fist" comic series, then you know the roles of these two characters are slightly skewed. In the comics Joy and Ward Meachum are actually niece and uncle. They are close and do work together but are not siblings. It's also worth noting that these two are not always considered good guys. After Joy's father had been murdered, she found Iron Fist next to his corpse and naturally blamed him for her father's death. Which lead to her and her uncle attempting to kill Iron Fist at any chance they received.

"Game of Thrones" star Finn Jones will play the lead Danny Rand, while "Lord of the Rings" actor David Wenham will play Harold Meachum, the father of Joy and Ward, on the Netflix Original Series. While "Game of Thrones" actress Jessica Henwick plays Rand's ally Colleen Wing.

"Marvel’s Iron Fist" follows Jones' Danny Rand as he returns to New York City after being missing for years. He fights against the criminal element corrupting New York City with his incredible kung-fu mastery and ability to summon the awesome power of the fiery Iron Fist. "Dexter" alum Scott Buck will serve as showrunner.

As of now, there is no release date for "Marvel's Iron Fist" but we can assume it'll arrive in 2017.
