    If they hadn't before, you can fucking BET they have now. There must have been a brutal Twitter purge after this went down.



    This is how I picture Iron Fist's training:
    Lol, love it. Saw this video earlier and now imagining it's IF make it even better. Seriously though, the fights in season 1 were apparently super rushed, so fingers crossed they took some time to make this season better.

    The Netflix shows budget/ timeframe seems to be taking a hit, and while I've enjoyed them all (even IF), the flaws in each of them just don't make me want to rush off to see them. IF1 was rushed and it was obvious from their reuse of that one snowy scene or the Dragon that was a lawn ornament from Home Depot, they didn't have money for it. But I can't see IF2 being less rushed or more money to it, the schedule for all the shows is pretty continuous.

    From what I heard, IF was even more rushed than usual. They were saying that most action scenes in a MarvelFlix show have like a month to get right. IF was rocking a week or less of practice to get them right.

    I honestly just don't get Iron Fist as a concept. He's like...a super-ninja? But his super-power is to make parts of his body (or just his fist? I'm not clear on this) super-hard or magical or something?

    Like...it sounds like the basis for a bad porno.

    It's an old Kung Fu trope and iron fist is your classic white savior Kung Fu tale along with all that entails

    He controls his Chi, which is a pretty standard "martial arts" trope. When he channels the Chi energy into his fist it allows him to strike with much more force than a normal human. He can also use it to make himself stronger and faster, make himself more durable, heal wounds quickly, and purge poisons from his system. There's probably some more but it's been awhile since I've read any Iron Fist.

    That's always been the kinda vibe I've gotten from it...White guy goes and studies "eastern mysticism" of some sort, and becomes super-awesome better at it than anyone else ever before. Like I get that these comics are written by and aimed at primarily white audiences...but in this day and age it seems a little trite.

    Okay, so he's got kung-fu magic.

    And here I thought it was something weird yet interesting like...one hand had been turned entirely to metal or something.

    But shouldn't we be worried that Squirrel Girl will be so far above the power level of everyone else in the show that there will be no believable dramatic tension?

    He plunged his fist into the molten heart of the dragon Shou-Lao the Undying. Not interesting enough?

    I hope they put more into the fight scenes next season. I feel like I'm the only person on earth who really enjoyed Iron Fist season 1. Maybe some really great fight choreography will sell the show better. Also a bigger budget would really help, though that's probably not very likely considering the first season underperformed.

    It's a shame, I honestly think the plot of season 1 was really well written, and the cast was great. Strong performances all round. Even Danny himself, I get why a lot of people didn't like him but it's a hard character to get right and the way he played him made sense in the circumstances of the story. I do think the actor himself is quite good. He's actually pretty charismatic in interviews, if they went a new direction with the character next season they could bring that out more. Also Colleen Wing and Misty Knight better get a show at some point, they're great...

    Fingers crossed season 2 changes everyone's mind about Iron Fist, poor guy.

    Wait, Spider-Ham is in it?

    I am much more hyped for this than I ever thought I'd be.

    Iron Fist's whole storyline was about leaving K'un-Lun before his training was complete and being emotionally compromised so his chi was constantly messed up. He's a long way from being the Immortal Iron Fist of the comics.

    He's probably mostly completed that arc in season 1 though, so hopefully they'll take him somewhere new.

    Too interesting. I would have found it far more interesting if he were say, unable to beat this dragon because he took it on after not completing his training and was punished by having one of his hands turned into metal. As he attempts to clean up his life, he breaks into the super-hero biz, ya know, 'cause getting punched with a literal iron fist fucking hurts.

    I just went and read his wiki, and jesus it's like a bad D&D backstory meets 90's Mortal Kombat.
