Maybe Marvel's Iron Fist Needs More Time to Develop?

Iron Fist

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). For the moment, the 13 episodes (the first season) lead to the evolution of the fourth member of The Defenders, a series that is to be released after this one.

In the books, when Iron Fist has a chance for revenge, he chooses not to kill his father's ex-business partner upon seeing that the man has already suffered, and instead channels his sympathy and compassion. How does the series continue the ongoing narrative of #Marvel's Netflix universe, and how does it set up the triumphant team-up? If they still dared to fight for the candy floss served in the name of superhero TV shows, we were ready with our masterstroke. And when housed in a series that's as shoddy as Iron Fist is, it all begins to seem like a rather cruel and witless act of aggression.

Sigourney Weaver's Character Explained Sigourney Weaver is a seasoned actress. The Hand believe that the age of government is over; corporations rule the world now, and the Hand work to rule the corporations. Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick) fights alongside Danny, and may make some wish that she was the Iron Fist. (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.

Danny and Colleen's relationship doesn't evolve in quite the ways you expect-despite being descended from a family of samurai and owning her own dojo, Colleen still ends up being schooled in martial arts and spiritualism by Danny. Such an epic, personal struggle should elevate our understanding of his character and at least be visually dynamic. Whatever the case may be, there's way too much in the way of corporate f*ckery in Iron Fist to make even the biggest stan stay awake.

The promotion makes some sense.

United States puts away Canada early, advances to second round
Butera, coming around from first, decided to make a break for home on the misplay with what would have been the winning run. The result means Mexico (1-2) and Italy (1-2) will have a play-in game on Monday to join Puerto Rico in the final eight.

Iron Fist can't justify any of this problematic stuff with a cracking plot or engaging characters.

During NYCC, Hidden Remote caught up Marvel's Iron Fist stars Tom Pelphrey and David Wenham to get to know a little more about their characters Ward and Harold Meachum, how the duo reacts to Danny's sudden return and more! Danny Rand is trained specifically to go up against the Hand, and he understands their dark sorcery in a visceral way that Matt Murdock will never get. When he returns, he's a Buddhist monk and martial arts expert.

Iron Fist - AKA Danny Rand - is a master martial artist and wielder of the mystical force he is named after, which allows him to focus his chi - or natural energy force - to move or strike at devastating speed, or even heal himself or others. That explains where he's been, and why it took him so long to return to NY.

No Real Direct Setup - But A Notable Presence!

How much of a fan were you of the comic books, now as it's been transcending on screen?

Of the poor reviews, Jones takes the same stance as "Suicide Squad" star Cara Delevingne and "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" star Amy Adams, deriding critics and stating the series is made for "fans" and not critics. While other Netflix Marvel shows have taken their time in their reveals, we usually get a bit more than this in the early stages. "We need more stories like that and God bless Netflix and Marvel for making those characters and making that statement in the show". Rosario Dawson's Claire Temple has made appearances on Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, and Daredevil.
