marvel's iron fist

Last week, critics managed to see Marvel and Netflix’s highly anticipated series IRON FIST, which is released today on the streaming site.

Leading star Finn Jones has officially responded to critics negative reviews regarding the show. He told Metro:

“These shows are not made for critics, they are first and foremost made for the fans. I also think some of the reviews we saw were seeing the show through a very specific lens. And I think when the fans of the Marvel Netflix world and fans of the comic books view the show through the lens of just wanting to enjoy a superhero show, then they will really enjoy what they see.”

What are those negative critiques? Not casting an Asian lead as Danny Rand for starters. Asyiqin Aaron, the creative director of Geek of Color, and Jones got in a Twitter discussion over the whitewashing issues.
