    Default Netflix's Iron Fist Discussion Thread w/ Trailer



    "Game of Thrones" star Finn Jones will play martial arts master Danny Rand in "Iron Fist" Netflix series, according to Entertainment Weekly. The report of the casting originally surfaced in That Hashtag Show podcast.

    CBR News has reached out to Marvel Television and Netflix for confirmation. Both Marvel and Netflix declined comment on EW's report.

    Here's how Marvel describes the series: "Returning to New York City after being missing for years, Daniel Rand 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."

    In addition to his role as Loras Tyrell on "Game of Thrones," Jones has appeared in "The Last Showing" and "Sleeping Beauty."
    "Six Feet Under" and "Dexter" veteran Scott Buck will serve as showrunner on Netflix's "Iron Fist." No timeline for the show has been announced, however. "Jessica Jones" debuted on Netflix in November, while "Luke Cage" is now in production. With "Daredevil's" second season already planned, it seems likely "Iron Fist" won't premiere until at least 2017.

    I think I'm pretty happy with this casting. Can't wait to see the Iron Fist series.

    So stoked! Daredevil was fantastic, Jessica Jones was mostly entertaining. I'll definitely give Luke Cage a chance, and Iron Fist the benefit of the doubt regardless on how Cage turns out.

    So far Marvel is 2/2 on Netflix and batting a near 1000 when it comes to casting, they could have told me Harrison Ford was cast to play Iron Fist and I would be confused, but on board.

    Until they fuck up, they have the benefit of the doubt.

    I can stand behind this, I like him on GoT and I think I can dig him as Iron Fist.. and of course, there are some on social media crying about the casting because.. you know.. he's white... Non-comic fans.. they make me cry
    Now you're on the field callin' me an asshole, 'Cause I roped up your body like a lasso

    And I could be just like Mr. HK, runnin' cause a melee

    I think people's feelings on the casting is quite valid though.

    I understand that the comic book character is white, but I think it would've been a good idea to retcon the character and make him Asian. Especially since the creation of Iron Fist was inspired by Asian characters and Kung Fu movies. He's heavily Asian influenced.

    Nonetheless, I'll definitely check it out.

    Some more Iron Fist casting news, as Marvel has reportedly cast Jessica Henwick for the role of Colleen Wing.

    "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" star Jessica Henwick is rocketing over to Netflix for Marvel's "Iron Fist." According to Entertainment Weekly, she'll play martial arts expert Colleen Wing, who "will serve as an invaluable ally to Iron Fist, aka Danny Rand (Finn Jones), as he returns to his life in New York."

    Marvel confirmed the casting with CBR.

    In addition to her fan-favorite role as Jessika Pava in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," Henwick appeared as one of the Sand Snakes in HBO's "Game of Thrones."

    In the series, said only to be "coming soon," Daniel Rand returns to New York City after being missing for years. There he fights the criminal element corrupting the city "with his incredible kung-fu mastery and ability to summon the awesome power of the fiery Iron Fist."

    "Six Feet Under" and "Dexter" veteran Scott Buck will serve as showrunner on Netflix's "Iron Fist," which stars Finn Jones in the title role. With "Luke Cage" scheduled for a September 30 debut, it seems likely "Iron Fist" won't premiere until at least 2017.

    I am so hyped for Iron Fist I can barely stand it. I don't even know how I'll be able to withstand the waiting for Defenders.

    Looks better and better each time I see it. Dig the subtle effects for the actual fist. They need to really try hard to show why he is better of a fighter than Daredevil. My guess is he does not tire during fights.

    Looks good. I wonder how many flashbacks per episode to his time on the island.

    Looks boring and generic. No style and personality at all, by the looks of the trailer. Not feeling these Marvel shows. Both seasons of Daredevil were solid. Jessica Jones was outright awful. Cringe worthy dialogue and forced, ham-fisted characterization; nothing felt natural about it. Luke Cage was absolutely freaking BORING. I wanted to love Luke Cage so badly, and while it had a few great moments, overall it was a big yawn that failed to jump off the screen. How do you make Luke Cage boring? How?!

    Oh, and cramming Rosario Dawson's character into every show doesn't work. Claire Temple deciding it's her mission to help special people was so lame and flimsy.

    Jessica Jones felt very aligned to Alias. Dead on to how I saw her at least. Only thing really missing was Ant Man. Luke Cage was amazing as a black television show and captured who I felt Luke Cage was very well. I dig Claire. I like she is the thread that unites the shows.

    I am binging this this weekend, reviews be damned. This is the lead in to Defenders and even if Iron Fist sucks, I expect to see Stick and Colleen Wing is supposed to be great. I am hoping post Defenders Cage, Jones and Rand get rolled together for Heroes for Hire. Daredevil has plenty of stories to tell, but Jones really only had The Purple Man worthy of a full show, Cage works best with others and Rand cannot support his show it seems. Also Heroes for Hire is a great story that should resonate now with fans.

    I know it's starting off slow, but as somebody that doesn't know jack shit about Iron Fist, it's quite welcome. It's not throwing too much at me too fast.

    Starting off with Outkast didn't hurt either.

    Reading many of the reviews, I am curious, when did Daniel Rand become Asian? I thought he was always just a guy from NYC who happened to find K'un L'un. Reviewers seem insistent that he should have been played by an Asian though.

    I like the series, but it is a very slow burn... Probably strays into too slow.

    People who dont know what the fuck Iron Fist is have been complaining about this since the show started filming. It's so dumb.

    Believe it or not; that entire debate has been going on since Iron Fist began. You can even see it in the Letters section on his original run in the 70s.

    Danny Rand has always been a white man. I definitely would have understood if the race changed him (honestly wouldn't have cared but I honestly would have got it if they did it) but it's not a debate that should have ever occurred. I do get the issue but even race changing him just creates different issues (I did joke that they could have split the difference and find a mixed actor).

    I'm about to finish episode 6 and I really like the series. I do understand the reviews now though; it's a slow burn (like a few other Netflix shows such as Sense8, Marco Polo and Bojack Horseman off the top of my head). It takes until about episode 3 to get better and episode 5 to fully hit it's stride. It's a series that's meant to be binged. Hoping to finish by Monday.

    Okay, I have a big problem with the ending...

    Definitely the weakest of the MNU, but still solid. Dug the characters, references, Easter eggs, and acting, but the writing was not the strongest.
