Sorry on my phone right now, but this hurts especially with the improvement they made on the newest season.

They cut too many corners. Maybe they’ll incorporate someone else now like Moon Knight or Taskmaster

Well this sucks. I really enjoyed Iron Fist season 2, and I was eager to see where the show went from there.

Heroes for Hire is the obvious move. Theres already so much crossover between Luke cage and IF it makes the most sense.

The actors could then do a Defenders season 2 since theyve expressed interest in it and the fan reception is there

@kgb725: Yes, hopefully both Danny and Colleen find their way onto the other Marvel Netflix shows.

It wasn't really a good series. Obviously I wouldn't want the character to disappear, but they said this is likely not happening, so I don't mind.

Just as long as this isn't the last we'll see of Colleen, I'm fine.

This.

It is easily the weakest of all series. It's "best" season, is only marginally better than the worst season in all of netflix mcu. And many will argue the worst season was Iron Fist s1.

His character is easily the worst thing in all of the netflix MCU. His contribution to the Defenders was the most painful and contrived one.
For a show based on martial arts, It has more cuts per fight scene than any other show. This shows how far removed it is from the comic counterpart or the martial arts cinema it's supposed to emulate.It really highlights the fight that the actor can't fight.

Danny's best portrayal wasn't even in his own show. It was in Luke Cage!

This is a positive thing. It shows that badly made shows will be punished. It can only lead to greater stories.

Too bad really. Didn't think it was as bad as most people thought it was and after the S2 finale, S3 could show us some rather interesting stuff.

Ohh well, they can always appear in some of the other shows, plus this can also lead to other characters getting their own show.

@soaringturkeys: Dude quit the cuts per fight scene nonsense already. There is one fight in narrow space that goes overboard with it very early in season 1 the rest is completely standard. Also less cuts is not automatically a better fight scene.

This elevator fight is tons better than Iron Fists and it has more cuts.

I've seen better fights then Iron Fist but can someone handle the people who think they knew so much about how fight scenes are best done and then come up with some just do no editing at all bullshit? The dumbest think I've ever heard was a youtuber that in many cuts were bad, because fighting games don't use them like a fight scene was perfect when it looked like a bunch of computer characters are punching each other from a side perspective.

Even John Wick utilizes some unnecessary cuts when the directors feel like it enhances the scene. Jackie Chan had cuts in his scenes eveb during his best days. One shots are not the be all and end all and propagating that kind of garbage will only stagnate film making.

If they were planning on ending it after season 2 then Why Not end the series with a sense of finality? Why clearly set up for a new season then just cancel it?

I don't know how ratings work with Netflix but maybe it didn't do that well? Doubt they would end the season they way they did, if they were planning on ending it.

Netflix invested a specific budget across all the shows. I think they really did want to see if they could make a better season of Iron Fist... and they did I guess, but not to what they were hoping for. The reviews were still lukewarm and as was mentioned above, they have their own ratings/viewing system (which they don't share with the public), and from the looks of it, it must have been bad. But yeah, its a mixture of elements.

They probably don't want to bother wasting their budget on the show anymore.

I will also say; I think Iron Fist was the most disposable show for Netflix, if they had to drop one of them. Daredevil essentially already brings whatever elements Iron Fist provides for the audience, Luke Cage & Jessica Jones are attractive properties for obvious reasons, and Punisher is its own unique thing as well. Iron Fist just hasn't provided anything new or unique, its only brought on controversy left right and centre (to no fault of the property, just the show, but still).

Rogue dislikes the show even more post-S2 so he'll probably welcome this.

Well I didn't like iron fist but I think we can all relate to fans of the show. Sucks when something you enjoy gets canceled especially without closure.

This is what I was pondering, too. The reason Disney film studios don't make a Hulk movie is because he works better as a character when teamed with other heroes like The Avengers or Thor (at least that's the excuse they give when it also has something to do with Universal having the solo film rights). Perhaps Danny is similar in that he should be teamed with others to really stand out. I didn't care for most of Season 1 and I fully admit I have been slow to finish Season 2, so this news doesn't surprise me however just because there isn't a solo Season 3 in the pipes doesn't mean that this is the last we've seen of the Immortal Iron-Fist.

I personally would love another Hulk solo. The incredible Hulk was really good imo. If they ever decide to make a sequel though they need to lean into a bit of horror like the immortal Hulk. Sam Rami could do it.

Can't help to acknowledge that there was a time where myself and other fans wanted to see the Netflix marvel heroes in the Mcu movies and currently i wouldn't mind at all if they ended every Netflix marvel show after a third or second season...

And its not because of the Disney streaming service, its because the tv series format easily can saturate franchises with unnecessary new seasons that usually undermine core elements from the characters... And even the shared universe built in the Netflix marvel was not really able to make the spectators be interested in every show, like for the most part happened and still happens with the Mcu movies...

So, i already saw K. Feige looking a better manager than currently, but when it comes to the crossovers between movies and TV, he always was right and most of us wrong...

Yet, if that is true the Mcu series that will released in Disney streaming service, can also not succeed like intended, because being made by Marvel Studios may not be enough, if anyone asked me i would say that i don't see Scarlet Witch or Loki working in the tv format, and regarding the last character mentioned, i know him pretty well and all the marvel Asgard lore...

Budget was too big relative to its rather limited popularity. It was $100 million a season.

That doesn't necessarily mean we won't see Iron Fist (Danny Rand's) character anymore. Maybe we will see Defenders Season 2 at one point (probably more unlikely tho), or he will appear in Luke Cage show. Maybe the show gets renamed to Luke Cage and Iron Fist. And Heroes for Hire is also a possibility, if they really don't want to do the second Season for the Defenders.

Wonder how they'll adress all the plot threads they left hanging out there, like Orson Randall or how Danny got back his Chi.

even after season 2 I still found the series the weakest of the netflix shows... though It was better and I'd like to see where Danny goes in future installments of different series like defenders, daredevil or luke cage

@Penguin-Dust: you have a point. Danny's continued journey with his surrogate brother Ward could continue in a heroes for hire series or defenders but even better segway would be for Daredevil since they have introduced Typhoid Mary.
