Finn Jones and Jessica Stroup on the Set of “Iron Fist”

Posted on April 20, 2016

Finn Jones and Jessica Stroup pictured filming an action scene for the new Netflix Marvel Series “Iron Fist” at the Gramercy Park in Manhattan.

 

This series will stand alongside the Netflix Daredevil (for which we will have a final review and season wrapup in the next day or two, we promise), Luke Cage and Jessica Jones series and is a planned lead-in to a Defenders series where all the characters team up, presumably to save Hell’s Kitchen from the threat of another Starbucks.

There was some controversy with the casting of Finn Jones (who you might recognize from Game of Thrones) in the part of Danny Rand, aka Iron Fist, because there was a push to cast the character with an Asian actor as a way of updating and diversifying the character, a white man with knowledge of mystical martial arts. Alas, Marvel went with the tried and true and cast a cute white boy in the part.  Granted, the cuteness is well-camouflaged here, which appears to be a particularly poorly dressed corner of the Marvel cinematic universe.
