Marvel & Netflix's Iron Fist Trailer
 

As they say in the trailer, the series starring "Final Defender" will debut on Netflix on March 17. Two more Marvel-Netflix collaborations are slated for release this year, the 8 episode Defenders series mid year, and the first season of the Punisher series set for later in 2017.

Just what I always wanted, live action Iron Fist with shitty, awkward fight choreography.

Dorkandproudofit 02-07-2017 11:26 AM

To be fair, the trailer didn't give away much of the choreography. Besides, Marvel has yet to give us a bad Netflix series.

There's enough there to see that the fight scenes are cable-TV levels of meh.

But even Guardians of the Galaxy had terrible fight scenes, so I shouldn't blame funding.

Take it you have not seen all the ones that came out after Daredevil.

How soon before he gets the mask? The jeri curl isn't working for me.

Also, no matter how good the Fraction/Brubaker run was, do we really need more 'white guys learns ancient martial arts secret from a monastery and becomes underdog hero' in media?

Even if you want to set aside the identity politics of that criticism (not me, but comics nerds, right?), the template itself is just fucking boring and old at this point.

It's the catch 22 for Asian actors. Studios and casting directors will always defend their decisions not to cast Asians in major roles by saying "there are no Asian actors with enough name recognition for the role", but then they won't cast Asian actors in roles where they can accrue name recognition.

digitalErich 02-07-2017 02:25 PM

Yeah and that's always the least convincing argument given that the studios are literally the ones in control of who has name recognition.

But think it looks good, shrugs.

That was terribly underwhelming...

Oh, man, pom. You're my favorite sometimes. I feel the same way.

So half-second clips containing barely ANY really clear images of choreography combined with shots of regular stances where they're just posing as opposed to actively fighting tells you that the fight choreography is awful? Wow, you guys must be the greatest experts in fight choreography known to man if you can make that judgement based on this trailer.

Seriously, they didn't even give much of the plot away aside from the very basic idea of his origin--plane crash kills parents, learns kung fu for years before returning. How the heck do you make an accurate call concerning the quality of the show and be so entirely certain as you guys sound, just based on that? I'll be reserving my judgements for the release, thank you very much.

Looks good enough to give it a shot to me, you bunch of negative Nancys.

Narradisall 02-08-2017 02:06 PM

I'll give it a whirl but I'm not in any rush to see it.

Negative doctor lady was the best part for me. She always says what I'm thinking

I didn't watch much of the trailer because I plan to watch the show and spoilers suck. :p

Iron Fist punches a lot of stuff. Sometimes he kicks.

He also has a contentious and playful relationship with Hot Asian Chick, and of course they'll hook up. The show would have probably been more interesting if she had played Iron Fist instead of him.

So apparently they didn't cast an Asian person as Iron Fist because they wanted a known actor...but who the heck is this random white dude? I don't recall seeing him in anything before.

Edit - Apparently he is on Game of Thrones.

Dav Slinker 02-08-2017 04:35 PM

The fact they 'needed' a big name for a show when the marvel Netflix series already have a good cachet behind them... Worries me?

I'll check out at least the first episode, but I'm so lukewarm on this.
