Iron Fist Punches, Kicks and Cements His Place in Our Anticipation Schedule!

Iron Fist was apparently the star of New York Comic-Con on Saturday, as Marvel trotted out a bunch of clips from the upcoming Netflix show and a brand new, bigger, better trailer!

I know I say this a lot, but it looks pretty great to me! I’ve been a fan of every Marvel Netflix show, and they’ve once again made a really great trailer. I suppose it’s not that hard to make a great trailer, especially for the people at Marvel. They’ve been on point in their trailer game for a long darn time.

But this Iron Fist trailer looks great! The fighting looks cool, and I like the thump, thump, thump of the hits. The mystery sounds nifty and, based on some of the clips that were shown off at Comic-Con, the show sounds like it’ll be another hit. Plus, that’s totally Madame Gao in that trailer. That’s gonna be sweet.

Though that dragon tattoo on his chest looks kind of dumb. Hopefully he gets his super suit before too long, and hopefully it’s based on the modern design.

  1. While Im excited about the show, Im sure it will be quality, Im a little nervous about supporting the whitewashing. Couldn’t they just have made him Asian-American?

    • Iron Fist is white in the comics so it’s not white washing, I think you mean cultural appropiation and the Iron Fist comics had dealt with that issue respectfully for a while so I’m sure they’ll handle it appropiately.

      Also this may be because I’m not american but I find the concept of “Cultural appropiation” a bit silly, at least according to my experience people love sharing their culture.

      It’s mostly people of one culture living in another that complain, I’ve seen asian-americans complain about it but I have a couple of friends from China that told me they are very excited for it.

      • You’re right, that was lazy writing and I used the incorrect term, it should have been cultural appropriation. I think that many people rebel against the cultural appropriation of Hollywood because they feel as though there is a lack of representation, which ties in with whitewashing. The fatiguing cliche is that a white male often seems to be the “only hope”, savior or “chosen one”. I appreciate you calling me out on the improper term. Again, I’m excited about it, I just wish they would have made a different choice.

    • I think it would have been a really cool move on Marvel’s part if they made Iron Fist Asian-American, but I’m also fine with them keeping him white, like in the comics. I have more than enough faith in Marvel and the creative team to treat the cultural appropriation with respect.
