Netflix Cancels “Marvel’s Iron Fist” After Second Season

The Scoop:
The Netflix/Marvel collaboration and original series “Iron Fist” (sometimes listed as “Marvel’s Iron Fist”) has been cancelled by the streaming service a little over a month after the second season became available for streaming. Read more down below.

The joint statement was snagged from Deadline who first reported this yesterday and while I couldn’t locate a full on press released figure that they are a really reliable source for this kind of thing. “Marvel’s Iron Fist will not return for a third season on Netflix, Everyone at Marvel Television and Netflix is proud of the series and grateful for all of the hard work from our incredible cast, crew and showrunners,”. “We’re thankful to the fans who have watched these two seasons, and for the partnership we’ve shared on this series. While the series on Netflix has ended, the immortal Iron Fist will live on.”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Now I remember a lot of my friends saying how much they hated “Iron Fist” out of the rest of the Netflix shows and while I wasn’t on the same page as them since I enjoy the character, can see why some of their issues were louder than the rest. For me the main one was that he never wore a costume of any kind and what I want in all of these series and movies are costumed heroes. Like in their comic books. I didn’t hate Finn Jones and I loved Jessica Henwick and Simone Missick who while never called the title, were an excellent “Daughters Of The Dragon”. The second season was much better than the first but I guess it wasn’t enough. Back to the comic books with you Iron Fist, unless they are making this move to offer up a larger angle like they did with “Defenders”. What do you readers think about this? Were you as shocked as I was about it or are you happy to see it go and think that something much better is going to replace it? Chime in down below.

Now Streaming: Marvel’s “Defenders” On Netflix (8/18/2017)

By now I am hoping that you have watched the first two seasons of “Daredevil” along with the first seasons of “Jessica Jones”, “Luke Cage” and “Iron Fist” as a subscriber to Netflix because its all been leading up to this mini-series “The Defenders” where ALL of these mighty heroes and numerous players from across their respective shows will appear and unite against a common foe. If you have only recently subscribed to Netflix, then you have some serious binge watching to do and I recommend you keep these shows in order since much like the big screen hero counterparts, this does take place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and there is referencing throughout the shows. Take a look at the official poster and the premise and casting below.

The Premise: Set a few months after the events of the second season of Daredevil, and a month after the events of Iron Fist, the vigilantes Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist team up in New York City to fight a common enemy in The Hand. (thanks Wiki).

Netflix Presents: Marvel’s “The Defenders” (Official Trailer 2)

As most fans of the comic and movie media stuff we post about know, the Comic Con International: San Diego of “SDCC” is underway and will be winding down today with its fourth and final day. This convention always brings the trailers and sneak-peaks into the upcoming Fall television shows and motion pictures and as you know there is a lot coming out this year. A few months ago we shared the first trailer for the next Netflix installment of their Marvel series “The Defenders” and this is a mini-series that unites the stars of the previous shows Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist. These are the Marvel Comics “Street Level” heroes and here is the second trailer for the upcoming series. Check it out.

The Premise: Set a few months after the events of the second season of Daredevil, and a month after the events of Iron Fist, the vigilantes Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist team up in New York City to fight a common enemy in The Hand. (thanks Wiki).

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I pretty much raved about the first trailer and this just excites me all the more. I really enjoyed the other shows and hope that this keeps on coming. Most of us were skeptical at the beginning and here we are now chomping at the bit for the next go at these characters. Sure I wasn’t crazy about this being called “The Defenders” since I grew up on a different team but this dynamic sure seems to work. The question remains is will we find any of these folks in the 2018 major motion picture “Avengers: Infinity War”. Part of me says “no” because they are NOT Avengers at all but neither are the Guardians Of The Galaxy, Doctor Strange and Spider-Man and they are all in there. Only time will tell for that. “The Defenders” will consist of eight total episodes and will be available for streaming in full on August 18, 2017. Let me know what you think of the trailer down in the comments below and you can learn more about the show’s cast and characters via the official Wikipedia entry.
