What Time is "Iron Fist" Release on Netflix?

A after Earth's mightiest heroes first united in The Avengers, a new crop of protectors will come together on Netflix for The Defenders.

First there was "Marvel's Daredevil", with Matt Murdock, a blind attorney whose other senses are heightened way beyond the norm.

"Marvel don't really give that much information when you're auditioning for it, and I could kind of work out who the character was - Davos", Dhawan recalled. Then "Marvel's Luke Cage", an ex-con with awesome strength and unbreakable skin.

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

"Well, here's the situation", he begins, explaining that he only had three weeks to train before filming. The characters are popular in solo outings, but often are even more satisfying when they combine forces to fight super villains (and sometimes each other). So, for now, fans will have to wait and see whether Netflix's new superhero venture delivers on that promise.

They come from different worlds. "We wanted to hold back on showing Iron Fist", he says. Joy insists they need to get Danny out of Birch, but Ward stands his ground, leading Joy to wonder aloud, "What are you so afraid of?" Though Iron Fist pulls its punches in the originality department, it excels in thrilling martial-arts action: not just Danny's, but that of his reluctant ally Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick), a dojo master who makes extra money taking on fearsome opponents in brutal cage matches. "It has to be able to stand alone, but also has to advance the macro story". 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. But after 15 years away, he is back among the living.

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.

"It doesn't feel incorporated into character or organic, too often coming across like, 'Isn't kung fu cool and shouldn't we go to a Chinatown parade and do you want to hear a piece of advice that sounds like it came out of a fortune cookie?'" noted Brian Tellerico from RogerEbert.com. Another character, Colleen Wing is also introduced, who will prove to be a competent ally of Danny. When speaking to The Daily Beast, Scott Buck stressed he was not made aware of fans' desire to see a non-white actor portray Danny Rand until after Jones had been cast. "He has these spiritual pursuits - trying to attain these very Eastern spiritual philosophies - yet he comes from a very corporate Westernized culture". Not for me. I don't love anything enough to put myself through the rest of the episodes. The most glaring reason the airless protagonist Danny Rand, who has less charisma than the drug rug he struts around in for the initial few episodes. "It's not just some hokey-pokey fantasy land". Arrow, itself a bland riff that takes more from Batman's mythos than I can keep up with, also fits. It's in our nature, but we've forgotten it.

All 13 episodes will be available for streaming Friday.
