I like Finn Jones well enough, I can understand that it sucks to have your show panned and face a lot of personal backlash, and I certainly agree that critics have no particular merit these days (especially those who suddenly claim to object to a white savior narrative that is stamped all over their other Marvel favorites), but someone in PR really needs to ask him to just please stop talking.

Yeah, I think the show is probably not great (the showrunner choice was a poor one) but I also think there was an ingrained need to attack it online based on some pointless Internet groundswell to re-create the Danny Rand character as Asian. That being said, he is making a fool of himself.

I tend to wonder how many put up with Daredevil (which is essentially a generic white man mixed up in "mysterious" other cultures) expecting some big departure for Iron Fist. Ultimately I'd say there are other genres that will have this but Marvel Fu isn't one of them.

 

Sorry, I know this is off topic for GoT. The only thing I heard about that show recently is an item about Ed Sheeran being on it, which...yeah. Good for his fans I guess.

Finn brought a lot of the backlash onto himself. Had he left well enough alone the drama would've passed a lot quicker.
