The ‘Iron Fist’ star reflects on his canceled Marvel Netflix show.
It’s been a little over two years since the Marvel TV show. Iron fist, starring Find Jones Y Jessica henwick, was canceled on Netflix. Iron fist was the first from Marvel Netflix’s list to be removed, with the streamer slowly shutting down all shows on the list (Jessica jones, Reckless, Luke cageY Defenders) quickly thereafter. Iron fistthe cancellation was a blow; it had been running for two seasons and despite mixed critical reception, it had gained a large fan base. Iron fistThe shutdown in October 2018 meant fans would never see what stories were in the works for Danny Rand (Jones), Colleen Wing (Henwick), Ward Meachum (Tom pelphrey), and that of the Iron fist to emit.
Collider’s Christina Radish recently had the opportunity to speak with Jones about her role in Season 2 of Apple TV + ‘s landmark drama. Dickinsonwhat stars Hailee steinfeld like Emily Dickinson. During that conversation, we wanted to ask Jones about Iron fist Season 3 and see if he had any idea what the plot of that third season would be. Jones responded bravely and went on to share specific bows for Danny, Colleen and Ward that could have happened.
“Raven [Metzner], who was the showrunner for season two, and I was sure there was going to be a season 3, so we’d already figured it all out. I was so excited to get into it. It would really be about Danny finally taking on the role of Iron Fist, fully accomplished, fully charged, and in full control of his shit, too. Was to be this incredible story [with] Danny and Ward meet in foreign lands almost like a buddy story. And then he had Colleen in New York, isolated with this new power, struggling to come to terms with her identity and with this power. At some point, we would have met again and probably formed this crazy power couple. [or] superhero relationship. ”
Jones continued: “Season 3 really was so promising and it’s a shame to see it wasted and never reach its full potential.”
All that potential plot being scrapped due to cancellation is a sad shock to the system. In light of this, we asked Jones how he felt about being forced to leave a series in which he had spent two seasons developing a character and, furthermore, leave the screening knowing how the show’s plot might have evolved. How does Jones feel about not having a proper closure on Iron fist?
“It’s horrible. It’s like the death of a friend or close family member. You’ve spent years building this other world within yourself and sharing this other person with everyone. Usually with movies or plays, you can see that arc across. There is a journey. But with ‘Iron Fist‘it was like we just made it to the top. We were getting there. We had just turned the show around. We just did a great job, really getting the train back on track. ”
Jones concluded: “And then, within three weeks of its release, all [the Marvel Netflix shows] they were annihilated. That was sad. He was stunted. It felt like losing a dear friend. It’s a shame. There’s not much more I can say. ”
