Why you shouldn’t expect to see Danny Rand in LUKE CAGE.
The Marvel Netflix universe is in full swing - Daredevil season 2 has been in pre-production for a little while and I think they may have even started shooting some stuff, while Jessica Jones (they lost the AKA) is very far along. Luke Cage is in the writing stage, and I understand they have more than half the season broken and are working on scripts. But what about Iron Fist?
What I’m hearing is that Marvel still hasn’t decided what the direction of the show will be. They’ve brought in a lot of people to pitch, and have been having a lot of discussions, but so far nothing has stuck. My understanding is that one of the big hold-ups is the mystical element, with lots of different opinions on just how much weird wuxia to bring in to the show. I don’t know if there are other arguments about the race of the character, although I do hope they’re considering how to best proceed with that.
In the comics Danny Rand is Iron Fist, and he is more than just a kick-ass martial artist. He trained with the mystical masters of the hidden city of K'un Lun (which appears on Earth once every ten years) and gained the power of the Iron Fist - he can channel all of his body’s chi into his fist, which allows him to hit with superhuman strength, and which gives his fist a cool glow. This is what sets Iron Fist apart from, say, Shang-Chi, Master of Kung-Fu, who has no actual powers.
But will Danny have powers in the show?It’s an interesting problem for the Netflixverse - the first season of Daredevil was so grounded that Daredevil’s radar sense was backgrounded to an extent that some newbies told me they didn’t even know Daredevil had powers. You could technically do that with Iron Fist - he could mention his chi and shit a couple of times, but you don’t have his hand glow - but then why not just do Shang-Chi? At least that would get you an Asian hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I assume Danny Rand will be white because the character in the comics is white, and Marvel tends to default to reflecting the established character when it comes to major names. Part of what makes Iron Fist cool is the mystical stuff, and losing that just makes him feel like Baby Daredevil.
I just wanna say that it is ok to study witchcraft and not practice it. You don’t have to call yourself a witch to study witchcraft if you don’t want to. And, as far as I’m concerned, you are welcome to call yourself a witch if you feel like if you study but don’t practice. It’s up to you. Also, you are welcome to change your mind. With study comes new ideas and that shows growth, that’s not a bad thing. It just means you are becoming more yourself over time, and that’s a beautiful thing.
