    I'm also looking forward and watched all of the predecessor series. When does JJ S2 come out?

    So I binged this in two, four hour, sessions this past Friday and Saturday night... Yeah I have no life ;)
    I enjoyed it, but still don't get the Iron Fist character. Is he that much of a naive brat in the comic too? I also don't understand why he uses his super power so infrequently, there are multiple fight scenes where he doesn't use it, or uses it only briefly(?)

    I don't like get the Iron Fist character either. He seems quite flat somehow? And very boring in comparison to the others. Plus it would have been lovely if they had cast an Asian character as Iron Fist. His storyline depends so much on Asian Culture it would have been nice if they had found an Asian actor too but oh well. It's too late now I suppose :D

    Overall, I thought they took too long to get to the *real* plotpoint and there was no clear storyline from the start. I did enjoy seeing Jones, Cage, and Daredevil again and seeing them interact :)

    Nolan, they have not gotten Iron Fist quite right but he should not have been Asian. In the comics he has always been the blond hair blue eyed guy that learned from the Asians. In many ways he is like Bruce Wayne of Marvel. They just did not nail it quite right. I don’t care for the actor at all.

    I'm excited for this one, but I haven't watched Cage yet, and I only made it part way through JJ I found it very underwhelming. Iron Fist I liked to a point, the story is great, the acting, meh, Danny was just too whiny pouty face to me.

    Note: LOVED Daredevil.
