Maybe this is just me but I think Iron Fist and Ghost Rider were introduced in the wrong areas of the MCU. Iron Fist should’ve been introduced in “Agents of SHIELD” while Ghost Rider should’ve been in Netflix.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m fine with where they ended up. But personally, I think Danny fits SHIELD’s tone better while Robbie fits Netflix’s.
Danny’s character and backstory alone makes you think of goofy, comic book shit. He’s got a glowing fist of energy, he was raised by monks in an ancient, mythical city, he’s the heir to a massive corporation, etc., etc. Plus, Danny is just the kind of character you’d see on AoS. He’s light-hearted, has a big heart, and you get the feeling that he’d be the type of person to say corny jokes here and there. One of my main problems of the Iron Fist show is that the show’s approach to the character was wrong. Going for the “grounded, realistic” approach just doesn’t work because a character like Iron Fist SHOULD be loud and goofy. He’s the one instance where it’d be fine if the show was more like SHIELD, with all of its loud, pulpy, comic book action.
Meanwhile, Robbie Reyes would fit perfectly against guys like Daredevil and the Punisher. Yes, he also has a bizarre and colorful background. But the character in general fits the dark tone of Netflix MCU. He’s dark, brooding, has a depressing backstory, is known for being extremely violent, has questionable morals, etc., etc.. Although AoS did make it work with GR, he never truly fit on the show. You always had this feeling that he should be on a different program, one that allows him the freedom to be extremely violent and dark. And the times that he IS violent on AoS (like when he rips the Neo-Nazis apart), it sticks out like a sore thumb because the rest of the show isn’t like that. So with GR, AoS had a bit of an identity crisis. Did it want to remain a funny, quippy, cable superhero TV series or did it want to replicate the grounded, dark nature of its Netflix siblings?
Just imagine if these two guys were switched around. Instead of GR, the first third of AoS season 4 would be titled “Iron Fist” while Robbie took over as the fourth Defender. I don’t know, I think it would’ve worked better.
Look, I don’t wanna fuel speculation if it doesn’t exist but...
In the comics, Robbie Reyes’ love interest was this woman named Lisa. This is what she looked like:
Now, with AOS’ cast already pretty big, it’s tough to see where the writers can insert Lisa and have her be a major character. It’d be nice to see her on the show but I wouldn’t be surprised if they didn’t adapt her. Gotta keep the cast at a manageable size, you know?
But what I CAN see them doing is combining Lisa with another character. That being said, this could explain why Daisy started wearing a beanie beret and necklace all of a sudden (the necklace is a stand-in for the dog tags).
I mean, I KNOW I’m reaching and this was probably not the intention but that’s the first thought that came to mind. Now if that really was the intention, to combine Lisa and Daisy, then I gotta give it to the writers for including that change of wardrobe.
