Iron Fist's Finn Jones Responds to Show's Negative Reviews

Finn Jones is responding to some of the negative reviews of his Netflix and Marvel show Iron Fist, which will debut on Friday (March 17).

“These shows are not made for critics, they are first and foremost made for the fans,” Finn told Metro during an interview. “I also think some of the reviews we saw were seeing the show through a very specific lens. And I think when the fans of the Marvel Netflix world and fans of the comic books view the show through the lens of just wanting to enjoy a superhero show, then they will really enjoy what they see.”

The show has faced some criticism for not casting an Asian lead as Danny Rand. Asyiqin Haron, the creative director of Geeks of Color, and Finn got in a Twitter quarrel over the whitewashing issue.

Iron Fist currently has a 12% on Rotten Tomatoes.

    I am a comic nerd, and I had no problem with the changes to the core story, but there were a couple plot points that just seemed…. well, lazy.

    No spoilers, but if you have a character who is the ultimate fighting machine, don’t let him get beat down by the equivalent of mall cops in every second fight.

    If you establish a cool, sinister, badass villain organization, don’t water them down to the point of awkwardness.

    It seemed like the writers had a great idea, but lost it along the way.

    The show had some great bits, and great acting, but there was one point where I almost gave up on it half way through the season. There is a plot twist that makes no sense at all. Oh, and using the Bride of Spiders as a throwaway villain was a bad move.

    He’s not Asian in the comics, they’re not whitewashing anything. It’s political correctness run amok. I enjoyed the show, albeit not as much as Marvel’s other Netflix offerings.
