Iron Fist controversy had Jessica Henwick questioning whether to sign on for her role

27 March 2017 1:22 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It appears that Iron Fist star Jessica Henwick was aware of the whitewashing controversy surrounding the casting process for Marvel’s final Defenders origin story, as she reveals it did make her questions whether to take on a role in the series.

“It was a hard decision to make to join the show,” said Henwick in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “Not because of the material or anything. But I’m part of the Asian community. I’m Asian. I’m an actor. If anyone understands the conversation, it’s me. I’ve lived and breathed it.”

Henwick has previously showed her support for Finn Jones in the lead role as Danny Rand, stating that “he smashes it out of the park.”

Carey Mulligan to Star in BBC Miniseries Directed by S.J. Clarkson

22 March 2017 10:02 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Carey Mulligan in “Suffragette

Carey Mulligan is teaming up with another woman director. Two months after her latest film, Dee Rees’ “Mudbound,” premiered at Sundance comes word that the Oscar nominee will star in “Collateral,” a BBC miniseries helmed by S.J. Clarkson. Deadline broke the news.

Described as “a modern-day state of the nation project which takes place over four days,” “Collateral” is penned by David Hare (“Denial”) and will begin production in April.

Mudbound,” Rees’ follow-up to her Emmy-nominated TV Movie “Bessie,” earned rave reviews at Sundance and scored the the biggest deal at the fest. Netflix shelled out $12.5 million for the drama, set in the post-wwii South. The film centers on two families “pitted against a barbaric social hierarchy and an unrelenting landscape as they simultaneously fight the battle at home and the battle abroad,” Deadline previously summarized. Along with Mulligan, the cast includes Jason Clarke (“Zero Dark Thirty”), Jason Mitchell (“Straight Outta Compton”), Mary J. Blige (“The Wiz Live!”), Rob Morgan (“Stranger Things”), Garrett Hedlund (“Inside Llewyn Davis”), and Jonathan Banks (“Better Call Saul”).

Mulligan received an Oscar nomination in 2010 for her role in “An Education,” a coming-of-age story about a precocious teen directed by Lone Scherfig. She most recently appeared in Sarah Gavron’s “Suffragette,” a period drama that depicts British women’s fight for voting rights.

“When will [the film industry] catch up with the fact that [women-centric] films do well? It’s just like what Cate Blanchett said at the Oscars. The hunger for female-driven stories is there. You just have to make the films,” Mulligan told Women and Hollywood while promoting “Suffragette.” “This shock over how these films do so well is a bit tired now. Jennifer Lawrence can open movies like any male star.”

Clarkson’s directing credits include episodes of “Jessica Jones,” “Orange Is the New Black,” “House,” “Dexter,” and Netflix’s upcoming superhero ensemble series “The Defenders.”

Carey Mulligan to Star in BBC Miniseries Directed by S.J. Clarkson was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Iron Fist, the fourth and final member of the Defenders, has finally made his debut.

Poll: What’s Your Favorite Netflix-Marvel Show?

21 March 2017 7:33 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Now that you’ve had an entire weekend to binge (or decide against) Netflix and Marvel’s latest superhero TV show, “Iron Fist,” it’s time to weigh in.

Daredevil” hit the streaming service with a bang in 2015, garnering critical acclaim and drumming up excitement for fans. A second season even debuted in 2016, and a spinoff, “The Punisher,” based on the character played by Jon Bernthal in Season 2 of “Daredevil,” is also being planned.

Next came “Jessica Jones,” which was widely praised for star Krysten Ritter, as well as its unique take on consent. In fact, Variety named “Jessica Jones” the best comic-book series currently on TV.

Not to be outdone, “Luke Cage” jumped into action, taking viewers to Harlem with its bulletproof hero. With its charismatic star, played by Mike Colter, taking on bad guys played by Mahershala Ali and Alfre Woodard, its second season renewal was hardly a surprise. “Iron »

Finn Jones says it will be a couple of seasons before Iron Fist wears his classic costume

21 March 2017 3:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Although Iron Fist never wears his classic yellow and green costume at any point during the first season of the Marvel and Netflix show, a set photo did arrive online yesterday showing the costume in all of its glory. However, it seems it will still be quite some time before we see the character officially suiting up, according to actor Finn Jones.

Speaking to TV Guide, Jones discussed the costume situation, saying: “The first couple of episodes you see Danny kind of awkwardly fitting into suits. He’s not used to this. He’s in a suit and it doesn’t feel right. Then he’s in regular clothes and it still doesn’t feel right. He’s trying to find his identity. Eventually throughout the series he kind of claims some kind of identity through his clothes — but we’ve got a couple more seasons to go before we get to that point. »

Marvel TV/movies crossover "wouldn't work", says Anthony Mackie

21 March 2017 12:47 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rob Leane Mar 21, 2017

Fancy seeing Falcon and Daredevil hanging out? Don't hold your breath, Anthony Mackie suggests...

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is a big place, and it's getting bigger all the time. You've got the solo movies that started with Iron Man, the cinematic team-ups that began with The Avengers, the TV shows that started with Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Netflix series that kicked off with Daredevil.  

Fans have long been hoping that these worlds could properly collide, with a crossover between the big screen Avengers, the small screen Defenders (Charlie Cox's Daredevil, Krysten Ritter's Jessica Jones, Mike Colter's Luke Cage and Finn Jones' Iron Fist), and perhaps even some S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, being a popular dream.

Today, though, Anthony Mackie - who made his McU debut in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, as Sam Wilson/Falcon - has told the »

The newest series in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Netflix's Iron Fist, joins the superhero slate alongside Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Daredevil. The show centers on Danny Rand (Finn Jones), a young martial arts master/billionaire who returns home after 15 years in search of his identity. This proves to be more challenging than he originally thought, because his duty as the Iron Fist gets in the way. In case you're wondering what goes down in the first season, here's what you need to know - including spoilers! Danny's Tragic Past When Danny was a child, he and his parents were in a plane crash near the Himalayan mountains.

Iron Fist set photo shows classic costume

20 March 2017 1:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While Finn Jones never got around to donning the classic green and yellow Iron Fist superhero outfit in the Netflix series, such a thing does exist as evidenced by this new behind-the-scenes set photo recently released on Instagram. Check it out below…

Showrunner Scott Buck recently spoke about the decision not to have Danny don the costume in the show, stating that: “There was no good reason we could imagine to put Danny Rand in a costume. Because Danny Rand is still discovering who he is as a hero and where he is going to be, so he’s not yet ready to put on a mask or a costume.”

Perhaps the outfit will make an appearance in future seasons…

‘Iron Fist': 14 References to Other Marvel Netflix Shows (Photos)

18 March 2017 4:41 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Iron Fist” is part the Marvel Cinematic Universe alongside the other Marvel Netflix shows, and that means they all regularly reference each other and even share some characters. Let’s take a look at all the ways “Iron Fist” calls back to “Luke Cage,” “Jessica Jones” and “Daredevil.” Some spoilers here, obviously. Jeri Hogarth (Carrie-Anne Moss) is one of the main characters in “Jessica Jones,” and she appears in “Iron Fist” as Danny Rand’s legal counsel. Madame Gao (Wai Ching Ho) is one of the behind-the-scenes villains of “Daredevil” as leader of the Hand — which constantly does battle with the Devil himself. »

Is Iron Fist as Bad as the Reviews Say? (Spoilers)

18 March 2017 12:24 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Marvel’s latest Netflix show Iron Fist was released yesterday and it’s gotten punched in the gut by critics, receiving a paltry 17 % fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and a somewhat higher 37% on Metacritic. Is it really that bad? Cinelinx break down the show to see if it’s as dismal as advertised and if so, what went wrong.  (Spoilers ahead)

Is Iron Fist terrible? Well…no, not really. It’s disappointing but it’s not as horrible as the critical ratings make it seem. The likely reason that the show—which stars Finn Jones as the iron fisted hero—is getting stomped on so hard is probably due to the fact that the previous Netflix shows have raised the bar so high in quality that expectations for Iron Fist were in the stratosphere. Sadly, Iron Fist doesn’t meet those expectations. It’s not bad…it’s just frustratingly mediocre. »

‘Marvel’s Iron Fist’ Review: Season 1 Lacks Punch, Proves Incredibly Skippable

17 March 2017 9:29 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The problem with “Iron Fist” can be identified right from the very first moments — specifically in how its opening credits sequence compares to the other series in the Netflix/Marvel universe. “Daredevil’s” eerie viscous drippings reveal the various conflicting forces in Matt Murdock’s life — justice versus action. “Jessica Jones” is a moody stroll through Jessica’s New York, haunted by her demons. And the landmarks of Harlem ripple across “Luke Cage’s” body as he delivers a hell of a punch.

Here’s what happens in the “Iron Fist” opening sequence: A dude does kung fu. It’s mystical kung fu, clearly, and he starts off doing the kung fu in a forested area before eventually ending up in a city. But it’s a dude doing kung fu. And over the course of Season 1, that ends up feeling like all the show has to say.

The Defenders look to be in a spot of trouble in latest set video

17 March 2017 9:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As Marvel’s latest series Iron Fist hits Netflix, production continues in New York City on the upcoming team-up show The Defenders, and a new set video has arrived online which shows the street level heroes (minus Daredevil) looking in pretty bad shape. Check it out here…

“Marvel’s The Defenders follows Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. A quartet of singular heroes with one common goal – to save New York City. This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realize they just might be stronger when teamed together.”

The Defenders will hit Netflix in 2017, with Charlie Cox (Daredevil), Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones), Mike Colter (Luke Cage), Finn Jones (Iron Fist), Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), Simone Missick (Misty Knight), Scott Glenn (Stick), Rosario Dawson (Claire Temple), Rachael Taylor (Trish Walker), Jessica Henwick (Colleen Wing) and Elodie Yung (Elektra) appearing alongside Sigourney Weaver as the villain, »

Iron Fist Season 1 Episode 1 Review – ‘Snow Gives Way’

17 March 2017 2:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Shaun Munro reviews the first episode of Iron Fist

Iron Fist arrives on Netflix today amid the bad-pr double-whammy of whitewashing accusations and a fleet of negative early reviews, but for those prepared to keep an open-mind, can the streaming giant’s fourth Marvel show still deliver the goods?

Well, it seems to get one thing right from the up; the first two episodes are helmed by legendary film noir director John Dahl (Red Rock West, The Last Seduction), who in recent years has worked on a litany of acclaimed TV shows such as Dexter, Breaking Bad, Homeland, Hannibal, The Americans and House of Cards, to name just a few.

Sadly, however, this season primer isn’t the most invigorating introduction to Danny Rand (Finn Jones), who returns to New York City after being presumed dead in a plane crash with his parents, to find the family business now controlled »

Your Complete Guide to Binge Watching 'Marvel's Iron Fist'

16 March 2017 3:00 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The Defenders roster is now complete. With the premiere of Marvel's Iron Fist -- all 13 episodes are available to stream at midnight -- the final spot in Netflix's assemblage of small screen Avengers has been filled by Danny Rand. Before you binge, here is a comprehensive guide of everything you need to know about Danny and his glowing fist of kung fu glory.

"The show is very gritty and very dark in certain aspects," Finn Jones explains to Et. "We tackle serious issues, like the heroin problem in New York and corporate cataclysm and corruption behind the scenes. There's definitely dark elements, but I think how Danny is different from the other superheroes is Danny has this naivety to him, which actually gets him in a lot of trouble."

Marvel's Iron Fist Clips: Who Is Danny Rand?

16 March 2017 11:15 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Netflix's newest Marvel television series Iron Fist has an identity problem. Each of the preceding series leading up to Iron Fist -- culminating in the epic mini-series The Defenders later this year -- exhibited distinct points-of-view and unique attitudes. Daredevil expressed Matt Murdock's Catholic-driven rage, Luke Cage was typified by his social consciousness and a soulful mood, while Jessica Jones demonstrated female empowerment against the backdrop of addiction and sexual abuse. Each was an extraordinary character living within a fully-defined world. The perplexing question left unanswered by the lead-up to Iron Fist is: who is Danny Rand? And more important, why should we care? 

Over the past couple days, Netflix has dropped three new clips, which aim to define the character of Danny Rand, portrayed by actor Finn Jones, while also fleshing-out the world of Iron Fist and how it will be woven into the tapestry of what will soon become The Defenders. »

'Iron Fist': How Marvel's New Show Reinvents a 1970's Kung-Fu Superhero

16 March 2017 10:28 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

A young boy loses his wealthy parents, receives spiritual guidance and martial-arts training in the Far East, then returns home to right various wrongs and restore order in the big city – it’s a familiar superhero origin-story narrative. Very, very few comic-book adaptations would introduce their main character, however, wandering barefoot and disheveled in the streets of midtown Manhattan, Walkman blazing (listening to, of all things, OutKast's "So Fresh, So Clean") with a semi-stoned grin on his face, looking like he just stepped away from a drum circle in a Phish pre-show parking lot. »

Claire Temple Lends A Helping Hand (Again) In New Iron Fist Clip; Finn Jones Teases A “Bigger Threat” Ahead Of The Defenders

16 March 2017 8:02 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Spare a thought for Claire Temple. Ever since Daredevil made a beeline for Netflix two whole years ago, Rosario Dawson’s kind-hearted nurse has patched up the Man Without Fear and Mike Colter’s Hero for Hire, not to mention giving some much-needed advice to the prickly Jessica Jones.

But on March 17th, the final Defender, Iron Fist, will call upon Claire Temple for medical aid, and a new clip from IGN sheds light on the first encounter between Temple and Danny Rand’s hero-in-training. Is Marvel’s steadfast supporting player slowly beginning to complete her transition to Night Nurse? It’s the one rumor that continues to do the rounds online, but until we hear official confirmation one way or another, you can get a better sense of Claire and Danny’s dynamic up above.
