My word, Marvel. Ya’ll really ain’t going to get Iron Fist even remotely right, huh?
This trailer does nothing to sell me on the idea that the second season of Iron Fist will chug less turds than the first. Why are all the major sites stroking its so shamelessly? They that bought and paid for,
Regardless of what you think of it, Iron Fist is the rolling joke of the Netflix-Marvel merry marriage. In an attempt, I think, oh do I think, to fix the series, the showrunner of the first season has been replaced. Awesome! But. Wait. Replaced with the writer of 2005’s Elektra movie. Sweet Jesus Christ, this is amazing.
Am I excited for Iron Fist? Not really. Do I know if RZA is a good director? Not really (I never saw Man With The Iron Fists). But does RZA directing an episode of the aforementioned show get me excited? Yes really.
Carrie-Ann Moss’ Jeri Hogarth is going to be totally “very involved” in Marvel and Netflix’s Iron Fist series. This is according to Marvel’s TV Czar and writer of creepy Quicksilver/Scarlet Witch incest porn, Jeph Loeb.
Man, I don’t know. Netflix has dropped the first teaser for Iron Fist, and who knows how good it is going to be. Good, bad, somewhere in-between, I don’t know. What I do know is that all the promotional materials for the show are so fucking serious, and to the absolute left of how I think of Danny Rand. Especially Danny Rand during the seminal (or maybe not seminal) Brubaker/Fraction/Aja run.

Today, Netflix revealed the official release date for its Iron Fist. That’s right, no sooner hath the Luke Cage binges finished, has the next Netflix series been dated. So get ready! And clear your schedule for March 17, 2017.
This trailer is completely discordant with the Danny Rand I know and love in contemporary Marvel comics. But fuck it, who knows, maybe it’ll be good.
