Marvel confirmed Alice Eve has joined the ensemble of Iron Fist, but did not say who the British actress will play.

Returning for the comic-book adaptation's second season are Finn Jones, Jessica Henwick, Tom Pelphrey, Jessica Stroup and Sacha Dhawan. The 13-episode first season of the series is now streaming on Netflix.

"We are very excited to have an actress of Alice's stature join the cast of Marvel's Iron Fist," Jeph Loeb, Marvel's head of television and executive producer, said in a statement Tuesday. "Her exceptional talent brings an intrigue and danger to her character unlike anyone else."

"We're over the moon that Alice Eve is joining us this season," added show-runner and executive producer Raven Metzner. "We think she's going to be a great addition to an already stellar cast."

Eve, 35, is known for her work in Black Mirror and Star Trek: Into Darkness.
