News & Interviews for Marvel's Iron Fist: Season 1
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.
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.
Audience Reviews for Marvel's Iron Fist: Season 1
There's a lot to like about Iron Fist, not least of which is Jessica Henwick's second-fiddle as Coleen Wing. Unfortunately, as a complete package it is not a success, and a lot of that blame can be laid at the feet of lead actor Finn Jones, but the lion's share goes to showrunner Scott Buck.
The writers really screwed this up.
