Why You Can’t Miss the Netflix Series of Iron Fist
Iron Fist is the latest production of television series created by Scott Buck for Netflix, which together with Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage form a consistent set of Marvel Comics adaptations. Before Iron Fist was released on March 17, 2017, it had been lively discussed by critics and fans and, unfortunately, had suffered from bad reviews. Although, the attitude towards the newest Marvel’s superhero character is quite ambivalent, we decided to highlight the positive elements of the series in order to encourage you to watch Iron Fist and judge it from your personal experience.
Iron Fist is a story about a young man Danny Rand (Finn Jones) who lost his parents as a child and after 10 years of training martial arts comes back to New York City and tries to fight the corruption he faced with the help of his incredible ability to summon power and kung fu mastery.
The show not only depictures a glorious fighter with brilliant fighting skills but represents new storylines and connects earlier episodes introduced by the Marvel Netflix universe. Keep on reading and get to know why Iron Fist is a must watch show for every Marvel Comics fan as well as people keen on fantasy.
K’un-Lun Does Exist
The mysterious city of K’un-Lun, which is also known as the Capital City of Heaven is represented in the comics as a second dimension. K’un-Lun is almost impossible to reach as its dimension opens for the Earth only once in 10 years. The events in Iron Fist make K’un-Lun real as the main hero Danny Rand returns from the otherworldly city and continues his life in New York. The time he spent in K’un-Lun had helped him to shape his personality and taught him martial arts with the help of which Danny fights with the criminals.
All the Series Have Strong Bonds
The huge fans wouldn’t stay indifferent to the appearance of well-known characters throughout the newest episodes of Marvel Comics on Netflix. With the help of inserting the already known characters, Buck creates the feeling of nostalgia for the former shows and gives the audience a glimmer of hope to see their favorite superheroes like Daredevil, Jessica Jones, or Luke Cage in the next episodes. The following, already familiar to the audience characters, as Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson), Jeri Hogarth (Carrie-Anne Moss), and Madame Gao (Wai Ching Ho) appear in the episodes of Iron Fist connecting the destinies of the main heroes of solo seasons in order to make the next show The Defenders, which is coming soon, even more coherent and gripping.
For example, Clair Temple’s appearance in each season of the solo Marvel series makes her character a cornerstone of the Marvel Netflix universe. In Daredevil she plays a nurse, in Jessica Jones season helps the main heroine to save a seriously injured Luke Cage, whereas in Luke Cage, Clair and Luke fall in love with each other. In Iron Fist Clair gets to be herself and learns self-defense with her teacher Colleen.
What concerns Jeri Hogarth, she was at first introduced to the audience in the Jessica Jones show and now again appears as a Danny Rand’s lawyer.
Madame Gao is another unforgettable personage who was spreading heroin in Daredevil show and is back to her affairs in Iron Fist. Though, her role in Iron Fist series is more important as there is a connection between her belonging to the Hand (a ninja clan), heroine’s serpent sign, and a tattoo that Danny has on his chest.
Iron Fist Is Full of Action
As we already know, the main hero Danny Rand spent a decade in the city of K’un-Lun where he was taught martial arts and became a dangerous rival for each and every enemy on his way. Most episodes of Iron Fist are full of dynamic events, quick action, and fast movements, which we are able to observe during the fights. In reality, Finn Jones, the actor who plays the role of Danny Rand, has spent a great deal of time mastering kung fu, wushu, tai chi, and other martial arts in order to correspond to the hero of Marvel Comics. He has also taken classes of meditation and learned the philosophy of Buddhists, which helped him to get the feel of Danny Rand.
Love Affair Is Provided
Any story about a superhero can’t go without a romantic relationship. Iron Fist isn’t an exception. In the Iron Fist series we get acquainted with an excellent martial arts teacher Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick), also known as the Daughter of the Dragon, who charms Danny Rand and without who’s fighting abilities Danny would definitely have harder times.
The Plot Is Hooking!
Despite the fact the character of Danny Rand has been severely criticized, Iron Fist has brought a refreshing balance between all the seasons of Marvel Comics on Netflix. In fact, it is a golden medium between the too much of action in Daredevil and constant self-examination of the main heroes in Jessica Jones and Luke Cage. It is a gripping story with well-balanced fighting, training, self-exploring, love, and many other scenes. In comparison to all the previous main characters, Danny Rand is capable of having more positive look at what is going on around him, which makes his personage even more compelling.
Hope, we managed to reckon you to spend your time on watching Iron Fist series, the first season of which is already available on Netflix since March 17, 2017.
