What do you hope to see from Iron Fist on Netflix? While other Netflix shows about Marvel heroes - such as "Daredevil", "Luke Cage", and "Jessica Jones" - have exceeded the expectations of many fans, things have not been smooth-sailing for the forthcoming Marvel series when a white British actor Finn Jones was cast in the lead role.
To know more about Iron Fist and the kind of adjustment Jones said he has to do, watch the clip below. Also starring in the series, but not seen in the images below, are Luke Cage's Simone Missick as Misty Knight and The Lord of the Rings' David Wenham as Harold Meachum.
We both worked on Game of Thrones for six years, and I don't know about you, but what I learned about being on that show, and it was an adaptation, is that it's important to just deal with the source material that you've got in front of you.
"Right now we life in a culture and a world where we are very unequal in politics, in economics, and in culture". He also mentioned that the television and film industry needs to have "more diversity", particularly for Asian actors.
"Danny Rand is not a white savior".
It's not much of a teaser but Jones did let out that Danny Rand has visited the sacred city and "met" a "dragon". "He is a very complicated, vulnerable individual".
Here's a synopsis: In Marvel's Iron Fist, billionaire Danny Rand (Finn Jones) returns to New York City after being missing for years, trying to reconnect with his past and his family legacy. "He's gone through and suffered huge trauma and he is struggling to claim his own sanity and identity back", he added.
Iron Fist is your typical "white guy that learns martial arts and mystical skills, co-opting Asian cultural attributes along the way" premise that litters pop culture, specifically the type that originated during the boom in such characters in the 1970s.
