Finn Jones is in a tough spot. His "Marvel's Iron Fist" arrives on Netflix this Friday, and there's no ignoring the reviews. They're not just bad, they're Walter White bad. Rotten Tomatoes currently has "Iron Fist" at just 14 percent fresh, with critics ripping it apart as the worst of the four Marvel/Netflix shows leading up to "The Defenders."
Jones (Danny Rand/Iron Fist) is working to promote the show, and Metro.co.uk asked him about the rough early reviews. It's an awkward thing to have to address, but he sounded prepared.
Here's his response:
"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."
The fans will be able to judge for themselves soon enough. The 13 episodes of "Marvel's Iron Fist" will be available for streaming on Netflix this Friday, March 17.
