And just like that, Iron Fist totally redeems itself! I loved the second season of Iron Fist! I haven’t been this excited about Marvel’s Netflix Defenders in what feels like a long time. The action was thrilling, the pacing was solid and the characters were full of life and good development. This was a very exciting season of television.
TV Show Rating: 9/10 – Great.
I did not dislike the first season of Iron Fist like most people. I didn’t love it, but I also didn’t hate it. I was largely just fine with it. But I’m very pleased to say that Marvel and Netflix took all of our criticisms to heart, brought in a new showrunner and set about fixing Iron Fist‘s problems. I would have to say that they largely succeed across the board!
First and foremost, the fights are much better choreographed and more fun to watch! This is a show about mystical martial arts, so the martial arts action should be the most important part of the darn show. Iron Fist season 2 makes that happen and is therefore better for it.
Join me after the jump for all my thoughts on the second season of Iron Fist! Expect FULL SPOILERS for the entire season.
Casting announcements have been flying around the past week or so for the upcoming Luke Cage show on Netflix, and while I didn’t really know any of the characters or actors announced, we’ve finally got a live one here! It seems that the show will feature Misty Knight, another established superhero in the Marvel Universe!
Misty Knight will be played by actor Simone Missick, who I’ve never heard of, but I’m sure will do a fine job. Marvel and Netflix have this casting thing down pat!
Deadline made the catch after a casting call listed the character as ‘Missy’.
Misty Knight is a badass former cop who lost an arm in the line of duty, then had it replaced by Tony Stark with an awesome bionic arm. No word on whether or not the bionic arm will also be in the show, but adding Misty Knight to the Netflix universe sounds awesome to me! And perhaps she’ll guest star in the eventual Iron Fist series, since they’re romantic partners in the comics.
