In many of the e-mails I was asked the same question "What would you do to "fix" Iron Fist in Season 2?" In this blog I will detail my ideas for Iron Fist Season 2 .
I've had people say to me that Danny Rand isn't a character that they can get behind because he's whiny and I agree with that to a point. I believe Finn Jones played Danny in a way that he and the bosses of the show thought would show this man who grew up in a place where things are completely different without his parents to guide him and mold him into a man. I feel the struggles that Danny Rand has been through in his life are lost on the majority of the audience who watched this show for the fight scenes and the story line was secondary.
The Fight scenes in this show were pretty cool in my opinion now with that said they weren't perfect but they were cool and they looked great .
The Hand being the main villain's of the season was great because we learned about them in Daredevil and I think that helped this show alot. We got plenty of exposition about The Hand and Danny Rand's job of being the sworn enemy of the Hand because he's the immortal Iron Fist. I think the story line is amazing and really give us something fun and very enjoyable to watch for the duration of the season for any number of reasons. I've put alot of thought into how I would "fix" Iron Fist in season two so here are the TWO things I would do to fix it and ONE thing I wouldn't do .....
2. If they decide to do a straight season two to Iron Fist I think they need to bring him to a place where he is finally at peace with the events that lead to his parents death. I also think they need to use the Davos character and develop him into the Steel Serpent character. By doing this I feel you could really grow both characters in a positive way in the fans eyes.
3. I would NOT bring The Hand back as the main villain for the season for two reasons 1. I think if The Hand comes back it lessons the events of The Defenders and 2. I feel that there is so much more that Danny Rand / Iron Fist can be so much more then the "sworn enemy of The Hand." Build him up against other threats and make his character something special in the MCU .
People dismiss this show before they even give it a chance for whatever reason and that's not my style, I read negative things about the show before I decided to watch it for myself.
Again I don't think it's a "perfect show" it has flaws everything does but why can't we watch these shows and enjoy them for what they are a way for us to escape reality for awhile ?? Is it that hard to do in this day and age? Danny Rand does whine and cry alot about the events of his life but look at what he had to go through from the age of 10 on.. would you be a chipper rich kid when you finally got back to New York City? I doubt it.
