'Iron Fist' Review: The Struggle Is Not Real

Ouch. Just when I thought Iron Fist had turned a corner, the cold open - sexy women pitching synthetic heroin to potential buyers - bordered on cringeworthy. With the immortal Iron Fist having just landed on Netflix in his own solo series, Marvel are rebooting the character's adventures on the page with Iron Fist #1, from creators Ed Brisson and Mike Perkins.

Despite knowing it wasn't the "right word", Thomas went on to use it anyway, adding, "It's very easy to second-guess anything". In the interview with The Inverse, Thomas then went on to refer to Asians as 'Orientals, ' prompting many fans to rise up against the unflattering term.

Later in the interview, Thomas admitted that he would've been fine with a non-white lead in the show.

Thomas and Gil Kane created Iron Fist in 1974, and the comic book and its subsequent Netflix series focus on Danny Rand, a white hero who learns martial arts in the mystical city of K'un-Lun.

"On the other hand, if they had decided to make Iron Fist an Asian, that would have been fine with me, too".

Still, the show's not on solid ground yet, but I'm enjoying it more than the first couple of episodes, and I'm not sure it's as complete a failure as many critics said during the preview period. I didn't consider myself the safeguard of some kind of Caucasian literary standard or anything like that.

I tried to watch Iron Fist on Netflix, but it was boring and I gave up after 20 minutes. "Okay, so you can make some adjustments".

"I read for Danny originally", said Tan. Netflix and Marvel's collaboration is a bit of a dud. A few antagonists are surprised to find out that Danny is the Iron Fist and Davos refers to him as an "outsider", but that's as close as it gets to addressing his race. But in the comics, they weren't necessarily an official team together, though, I think all fans can agree that it's bound to be epic.

"Obviously I can do my own fight sequences, so those would be more dynamic". "So the last times we saw them, where are they, and what are they going to need to do in order to grow up?"

Claire is as normal as they come but as we seen in Iron Fist, she exhausted of being stuck on the sideline. It's an interesting debate about culture and respecting your past that at the very least feels nuanced in the ways Danny's plight does not. "That's been really hard - especially for me". "This was something I told the writers: It's taking the questions that were posed in the finales of each of their shows", he told Entertainment Weekly. Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Iron Fist (Finn Jones) and Luke Cage (Mike Colter) will all bring friends. Unsurprisingly, the "Iron Fist" series is the most martial arts-heavy of the bunch, yet it's good to see the style as well represented as it is in this one, with plenty of nods to the kung-fu movies of the old as well.
