First Full Iron Fist Trailer Revealed at New York Comic Con
The first full Iron Fist trailer is here, and it's better than we ever imagined it would be:


Here's the good news: it seems action-packed and exciting, with an epic scope that will probably be helped by the mystical element. And hopefully that same mystical element won't prevent the fighting from being as gritty and realistic as other Marvel/Netflix shows, and that aspect of the show looks promising from this trailer.

The bad news: this still looks super racist, even putting aside Finn Jones' controversial casting. Marvel is making strides with diversity, but after the mystical ninja debacle on Daredevil, it definitely still has an Asian problem, and this show doesn't really look like it will fix it. Plus, racist depictions of Asian cultures often go hand-in-hand with cheesiness and adherence to bad action movie tropes, which none of us want. We'll give it the benefit of the doubt until it comes out, but we're skeptical.

Iron Fist comes out March 17, 2017.
