I’m not gonna lie, I’m not very excited about Iron Fist. We talked about it on the podcast, but the preview just didn’t impress me. Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Luke Cage, all had something really unique to them, but Iron First looks like more Daredevil, but he can see, and has a glowy hand thing. So that “meh” attitude means I’m not gonna watch it? Of course I will, who are you kidding. I’m just not super hype about it. I am excited to see how the Defenders come to be. So there’s that. This definitely helped me get up to speed on a character I was not very familiar with.
