It’s no surprise that Marvel and Netflix are looking to replace the upcoming Iron Fist series which is part of the Defenders, a group of super powered heroes in the Marvel Universe that are a little less mainstream than, say, the Avengers. One of the Defenders, Iron Fist to be specific has had his noggin on the cutting block for a bit. With Daredevil a huge hit, and the upcoming Jessica Jones, we have two of the Defenders who are New York based fit quite well. Iron Fist who is a practitioner of martial arts and the wielder of a mystical force known as the Iron Fist, which allows him to summon and focus his chi.
With that being said, you can see the conundrum Netflix and Marvel are facing with tying the stories together. So it looks as if They will then change Iron Fist into a film available on Netflix and replace the hero with none other than The Punisher.
