Iron Fist Renewed for Season 2 at Netflix, Taps New Showrunner


Raven Metzner (Fox's Sleepy Hollow, NBC's Heroes Reborn, and TNT's Falling Skies) will take over as showrunner for Iron Fist Season 2. Variety has the story.

Quote:
Netflix has renewed the Marvel series “Iron Fist” for Season 2.

Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb made the announcement at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday. In addition, Loeb hinted that Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick) would team up with NYPD detective Misty Knight (Simone Missick), who first appeared in Season 1 of “Luke Cage.” The characters previously partnered together in the Marvel comic books.

“Iron Fist” stars “Game of Thrones” alum Finn Jones as Danny Rand, the heir to the multi-billion dollar Rand Corp. who returns to New York after training for years in the mysterious city of K’un-Lun. Through his training, he was chosen to be the living weapon known as the Iron Fist, which allows him to channel his chi energy into his fists.

Eh. I'm not sure which one was worst. This one or Luke Cage.

I gave this one up during the ridiculously comical and over-the-top bludgeoning of a body. I'm all for violence with a purpose in a story, but that was handled so poorly it just turned me off of the entire series, which to that point had merely been boring and stupid, not ridiculously and artistically inept.

Season 2? Waste of money.

As long as the story is consistent and thought out... bring it on.

Iron First, for me, was probably the worst of the Netflix Marvel series. That said, it was still better than 99% of the episodic content out there (I'm talking all platforms, networks). It was downright painful at times, but had its moments. So I watched it and I'll watch season 2 too, hoping to see some improvement.

I think doing a second season of Iron Fist might be a mistake. While Luke Cage suffered from a boring story, and Jessica Jones suffered from a pretty stale "hero" Iron First suffered from both.

Maybe it needs a new show runner and maybe that person will understand we need a little more kung fu with our kung fu hero and more Iron Fist with our Iron Fist. And some more Kingdoms lore with our missing and dying kingdoms. And some more explanations about our protectors of the kingdoms.

Iron Fist was so bad I spent most of the show pressing the fast forward button.

Tedious.
