I can think of no reason Iron Fist would have been worse off for giving the part to an Asian actor. I also have no hope that would've made this show comprehensible or exciting.

Plot points that should have been charged with urgency simply ended up feeling a bit dull, while the fight scenes themselves, at least in early episodes, lacked any real sense of danger.

Iron Fist is the textbook definition of "just fine."

Ultimately, Marvel's Iron Fist feels incredibly inessential, even boring at times.

Iron Fist's decided unwokeness is notable, particularly when Danny lectures Colleen, who is of East Asian descent, on the right way to channel her internal force. But it's just one of a list of flaws, with Jones's miscasting the most obvious issue.

The other three instalments of the franchise each had a distinct identity but Iron Fist feels like a spin-off rather than its own entity. There's no sense that it knows what it wants or needs to be.
