The first six episodes of Iron Fist were released for critics to watch. Suffice it to say that the first reviews haven’t exactly been kind to the latest Marvel Netflix series. Many have called it not only incapable of handling diversity problems, but that the story itself is boring and Finn Jones’ performance flat.
Jones recently spoke with Metro about how, at the end of the day, it isn’t about the critics, but that the show is made with the fans in mind. Way to keep a positive attitude? I guess we’ll have to wait until later this week to see what the fans truly have to say about the series.
You can read what Jones had to say below.
Well I think there’s multiple factors. What I will say is these shows are not made for critics, they are first and foremost made for the fans. I also think some of the reviews we saw were seeing the show through a very specific lens, and I think when the fans of the Marvel Netflix world and fans of the comic books view the show through the lens of just wanting to enjoy a superhero show, then they will really enjoy what they see. I think it’s a fantastic show which is really fun and I think it stands up there with the other Defenders’ shows without a doubt.
Iron Fist will debut on Netflix on March 17.
10 Characters Who Should Appear In The ‘Nightwing’ Movie
So Michael Cera’s appearance as Dick Grayson in The Lego Batman Movie wasn’t enough for all you Nightwing fans, huh? Well, WB is listening and has decided to give Heroic Hollywood’s Number 1 sidekick his own movie. Now, Chris McKay, director of Lego Batman, has been named the director of a Nightwing movie no one saw coming. Nightwing’s place in the DCEU is up in the air. How long ago did he quit being Robin? Are he and Batman speaking right now? Why wasn’t he mentioned in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice?
While the movie will likely answer all those questions, I expect it will also serve as an introduction to a different corner of the Batman universe, similar to the upcoming Gotham City Sirens. Batman might be in it for a scene or two, but the movie will need a full supporting cast to help Nightwing appear as the kickass, sociable character he is. Bruce Wayne has got the brooding down, but former circus performer Dick Grayson knows how to have fun in a way his mentor doesn’t.
