The wait is finally over. (The other three, "Daredevil", "Jessica Jones" and "Luke Cage" will join Iron Fist later this year in "The Defenders", an Avengers-like team up). Marvel fans took to Twitter to voice their disagreements with the mostly negative reviews the show has been getting.
The actor has specifically called out Donald Trump as a reason why "Iron Fist" isn't being well received. It is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and shares continuity with the films of the franchise. Here are some of the key elements. The times when we would be amused at them lowlife DC fans at their attempt to tell us that they are better than us?
"I'm not in the Defenders, no", the actor confirmed. Because, you see, Iron Fist is the best kung-fu boy in the world, a monk-blessed avenging hero with a magical fist (the porn parody is going to be harrowing) who is destined, or ordained, or something, to fight The Hand, an insidious and far-reaching criminal enterprise that employs ninjas to do its dark deeds. We're supposed to believe that this kid grew up in NY and yet for some reason believes he can stroll into the lobby of a big corporation like Rand dressed like that and be taken seriously?
Sigourney Weaver's Character Explained Sigourney Weaver is a seasoned actress.
Warning: Mild "Iron Fist" spoilers ahead. The Hand believe that the age of government is over; corporations rule the world now, and the Hand work to rule the corporations. (Dawson's charm nearly wins out over the leaden dialogue she's burdened with.) Characters make decisions that seem demanded by the plot but aren't true to what we know about them. We know that Weaver will be playing the show's main villain, and we know that her character is named "Alexandra".
When we last left our wayward Iron Fist, he'd found himself on the receiving end of some very rude drugging courtesy of Joy Meachum - and woken up in what appeared to be a hospital of some kind.
The promotion makes some sense. But you'll still have to sit through the six hours critics have seen, and there are entire series that do much more to reward that time investment than Iron Fist. Danny Rand (Finn Jones) returns to NY after spending most of his life being trained by monks in the Himalayas to harness the power of the Iron Fist.
Vulture's Seitz agreed, although he noted that "it's far from the worst of its kind", calling Danny Rand "a young white guy's fantasy about the mystical awesomeness of Asian religion and martial arts". Hell, even in the comics, it's not like Danny Rand is the first Iron Fist!
But it's Iron Fist's friendship with Cage that's really special. Just as Davos warned, with the Iron Fist in America, the way to K'un L'un was open - and nobody stood in the Heavenly City's defence.
Fifteen years later, he returns to New York City in order to reclaim his life - and his father's multibillion-dollar company.
So far, it looks as though Daredevil and Iron Fist will be the most important members of the Defenders. Why has he come home and what does he want?
Netflix has released it's latest web offering Iron Fist on March 17, 2017 for audiences worldwide.
