Wu Assassins Certainly Feels Like What Iron Fist Could Have Been

A quick glance and you’ll notice a lot of similarities between the new Netflix Original, Wu Assassins, and old Netflix Original, Iron Fist. Both are goofy shows about chosen ones out to stop bad guys with their fists. Both are about men facing a turning point in their personal lives. Both are set in coastal American cities. Both include a brother/sister duo who love the protagonist but might be toxic for them. Both feature Lewis Tan being very charming. But in Wu Assassins, everyone can actually fight. Read More >>

The Conflicted Legacy of the Marvel Netflix Experiment

With the release of Jessica Jones’ third and final season, a TV experiment four years in the making is over.

Iron Fist Season 2 Introduces a Cavalcade of New Characters From Marvel’s Comics

The way Netflix’s Marvel shows gradually introduce certain B and C-level supporting characters from the comic books into their universes has always been one of the most interesting things about them. Iron Fist’s second season continues in this tradition, but the specific characters introduced here could portend major things on the horizon for Marvel’s street-level heroes. Read More >>

The First Pictures From Iron Fist Season 2 Include a Badass-Looking Daughters of the Dragon Teamup

Of the many villains that Danny Rand faced in Netflix’s Iron Fist, a case could be there was none greater than Scott Buck, the series’ showrunner, who gave the series an unlikable Danny Rand, too many boring Rand Corporation board meetings, and a dearth of fight scenes that actually looks cool. But it’s just been announced Iron Fist getting a new showrunner for its second season. Read More >>

After Logan and Legion, are the Traditional Super-Heroics of Iron Fist Obsolete?

Do you remember back in 1999, when Star Wars: The Phantom Menace was being talked up as a mind-blowing new world of CGI that would change film forever? Then The Matrix came out of nowhere a month before TPM’s release and gave us a more modern, inventive and influential use of CGI than TPM could ever hope to top. Remember that?

Finn Jones’ Latest Dumb Defense of Iron Fist: It’s Trump’s Fault

Finn Jones, star of Marvel and Netflix’s Iron Fist, keeps blaming outside factors for the poor reviews of his show. He’s already trotted out the old and rotted “this is for the fans not critics” argument, but now he’s added an argument as baffling as it is new: Danny Rand is too much like Trump and that is why people don’t like him. We are dead serious. Read More >>

The Iron Fist TV Series Is Marvel and Netflix’s First Big Failure

There’s a critical concept with the Marvel Netflix shows often referred to as “the wall”—the moment where, about two-thirds of the way through their season, they slam the brakes on the pacing and stakes and preamble for a bit, mostly before pulling it together in the finale. Iron Fist starts by hitting that wall, and has enough problems that I don’t think it’ll ever get past it. Read More >>
