Iron Fist Season 1 Review (Minor Spoilers)
Starring: Finn Jones, Jessica Henwick, Jessica Stroup, Tom Pelphrey, David Wenham, Rosario Dawson
Iron Fist is loaded with possibilities. Marvel’s latest Defender has a built-in Netflix audience and the advantage of seeing how to construct a superhero TV show off the momentum of Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage. Looking back at Season 1, it’s evident that Iron Fist is inconsistent, uninspired and deeply flawed.
“No Good Deed Goes Unpunished.” A gun-toting vigilante named Frank Castle, aka The Punisher, is set to cross paths with Daredevil in Hell’s Kitchen.
Marvel’s Daredevil centered on Matt Murdock, a blind attorney by day and crime fighter by night, will stream the entire Season Two consisting of 13 episodes on March 18, 2016 on Netflix.
Jessica Jones Season 1, Episode 1 “AKA Ladies Night” (Spoiler Free Impressions)
The first season of Daredevil was critically praised, leaving Jessica Jones, the second of four individual Marvel drama series created for Netflix, a lot to live up to. The series premiere is a good indication that it’s tough, no-nonsense heroine can not only hold her own as a lead character but that this series is going to be a dark, engrossing ride.
The future of the Fantastic Four franchise is not bright. 20th Century Fox spent 120 million dollars to produce a reboot of Marvel’s longest running superhero team. Early estimates put the opening weekend box office at well below $40 million.
Director Josh Trank has spoken out against the studio meddling with his vision of Fantastic Four. As reported at comicbookmovies.com, Fox cut out 3 action set pieces days before filming, took over the third act from Trank and removed the director from the editing room.
Currently, Fantastic Four (2015) is scoring 9% on Rotten Tomato’s critical consensus, the audience score is at 28%. I’ll reserve judgement on the movie until I’ve seen it myself.
Here are five options on how the studio can handle the Fantastic Four property. We’ll discuss the pros & cons and the probability of each option.
