IRON FIST Star Finn Jones Responds To The Marvel And Netflix Show's Negative Reviews

The first wave of reviews for Iron Fist were nowhere near as positive as those for previous Marvel TV shows on Netflix, but now star Finn Jones has weighed in on the critical response to the series...

Up until now, Marvel's Netflix efforts have been pretty much critic-proof. There have been complaints about them being overlong or some of the character/story decisions, but for the most part, negative reviews have never really factored into the response to Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage. Unfortunately for Iron Fist, the verdict hasn't been anywhere near as positive as for those shows. 

Now, in an interview with Metro, star Finn Jones (who has to be feeling pretty demoralised right now) weighed in on those reviews and made it clear that it's a series he believes comic book fans will love.


"Well I think there’s multiple factors. What I will say is 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. I think it’s a fantastic show which is really fun and I think it stands up there with the other Defenders’ shows without a doubt."

It's important to note that critics only saw the first six episodes of Iron Fist and that the next seven could tie things together in a way which make the show one of Marvel's best; right now, it's as if people have seen half of a film and already written their reviews! There's no getting around the fact that most didn't like what they saw in those six instalments, though it's not like it's been really torn apart.
