'Iron Fist': Meet the Cast of Marvel's New Netflix Show

Finn Jones as Danny Rand in 'Marvel's Iron Fist'

Warning: This article includes spoilers for episode 6 of Iron Fist.

"I think the world has changed a lot since we were filming that television show", Jones said.

"But what you will start to see is he starts to realise...yeah he's happy that his friend and brother has become Iron Fist, but maybe Danny isn't actually up to the task at hand, because he just left".

Iron Fist follows billionaire Danny Rand, who returns to New York City after being presumed dead for 15 years. It's based on comics about the son of wealthy industrialists who is orphaned in a plane crash, only to find a mystical city that only appears on earth at infrequent intervals.

The best way for Marvel/Netflix to punch through that negative energy was to produce the best Iron First story possible for a live-action adaptation.

Once Iron Fist is fully established in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Netflix foursome can team up for the big payoff. Iron Fist is a familiar character in the comics, but unlike Daredevil or even Iron Man, he is one that many casual fans might not know much about. Luke Cage had his time before the camera a year ago in a maxiseries that ran on Netflix and that I thought was pretty good.

When asked a general question about how he prepared for the exciting martial arts scenes, and his reply is halfway between an excuse and an apology. There was spectacular source material there for the taking.

Change those clocks! It's time to 'spring forward'
Although Daylight Saving Time is no longer a federal requirement only two states don't do it, Arizona and Hawaii. I know, it's insane . "I'm all for erasing it all together and I know a lot of my friends would probably agree".

Fifteen years later, he returns to NY to reclaim his family name and find his way in the world. It's a talent that he uses only sporadically in the half-dozen episodes previewed, as Danny girds to battle The Hand, a shadowy organization he has trained his whole life to defeat. It looks like Danny is going to continue to be caught between a rock and a hard place now that he's officially a top dog at Rand.

Netflix never does like to sit still, and so it's no surprise that this week the company is upsetting more than just people who enjoy 5 star ratings. However, when a long-destined enemy rises in NY, this living weapon is forced to choose between his family's legacy and his duties as the Iron Fist. It's not like Iron Fist is a Daredevil-level hero. And the sad thing is, plenty of people saw these problems coming a mile away.

The difference of style in Iron Fist compared to the other three Netflix Marvel series is a commendable effort from Netflix. And when housed in a series that's as shoddy as Iron Fist is, it all begins to seem like a rather cruel and witless act of aggression. You probably wouldn't think this scruffy-looking hippie kid could efficiently wipe the floor with half dozen armed security guards twice his size. Their relationship is an interesting one which sets them apart from the other Netflix villains. Iron Fist makes its grand debut to the streaming platform on Friday, March 17 and fans already can't wait to see how his story will play out.

There's a sad, puppyish quality to Iron Fist, Netflix's latest colorless Marvel series.

Over the past few years, Marvel Television and Netflix have rolled out show after show with the grand plan of uniting a mismatched group of NY superheroes into a kind of Big Apple Avengers.

But just how does Iron Fist pave the way for #TheDefenders?
