What Wholly said, with a few additional comments. Iron Fist was rumored for a long time, but there was some difficulty getting it off the ground. It’s by far the least grounded of the four properties even considering that we’re still talking about three super heroes (4.5 if you want to count Punisher). The powers (all Martial Arts based) exhibited therein are out of the extra fantastic side of Wuxia. So it seems like some of that may not translate and if it doesn’t someone has to rework it in an acceptable manner. Though I’m hoping it all comes in because I want to see all six* Immortal Weapons in action, and all of that glorious and crazy martial art action. And I want to see the other mystical aspects (things like cities that only connect to this plane of existence every so often) just because I love Immortal Iron Fist that much (the first half of which I recently read).
I haven’t read anything about the strategy Netflix is pursuing with respect to how often it wants to give us shows from this corner of their space. If we did get Iron Fist finally, and possibly a Punisher down the road, we would definitely need to do 3 series in a year at some point. Given that we’re still in somewhat unsettled territory it may be that Netflix is being especially deliberate right now until it gets more confident about scheduling this stuff.
In closing: 29 Rising Dragons kick pls.
- Bride of Nine Spiders can GTFO or maybe we can substitute someone for her?
