Will Alice Eve & Raven Metzner add punch to Iron Fist Season 2?
Iron Fist season 2 production work has started, and we got an update that ‘Iron Fist’ will be getting a new company. Star Trek: Into The Darkness actress Alice Eve will be joining Finn Jones aka Iron Fist. However, it is not yet clear that she will be joining his fight against ‘The Hand’ or herself portray a bigger threat.
Alice Eve recently worked on Netflix’s acclaimed series ‘Black Mirror‘ episode ‘Nosedive’ alongside Bryce Dallas Howard and Anthony Hopkin’s starrer ‘Misconduct.’ She will surely bring more star power to the Iron Fist. “We are very excited to have an actress of Alice’s stature join the cast of ‘Marvel’s Iron Fist,’” says Marvel TV boss and Iron Fist EP Jeph Loeb. “Her exceptional talent brings an intrigue and danger to her character unlike anyone else.”
The first season had a rough run and writing was all over the place. The main character was weak, and it didn’t feel like we are watching comics-based series. The series got terrible reviews from both the critics and audiences. After that ‘Iron Fist’ made the appearance again in ‘The Defenders’ and character felt like more developed out. As he fought the hand alongside Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage, which helped in giving him more depth.
Now as Netflix prepares for season 2, they have to work on many things to make this series a successful one. As currently, Iron Fist is the only Marvel series on Netflix which haven’t fared well. There has been some positive news around as Raven Metzner has taken over from Scott Buck as the series runner. Lately, Scott Buck has been responsible for the debacle of series like Dexter and Marvel’s Inhumans so his departure comes as a positive sign. Apart from that Raven has shows like Sleepy Hollow and Falling Skies under his belt, which gives us hope for the better season.
With the excellent first season of The Punisher behind us, we are hopeful that ‘protector of Kun-Lun’ will be back to deliver a much stronger punch this time around.
