British-Singaporean actress Jessica Henwick expresses disappointment regarding the cancellation of Iron Fist on Netflix, specifically in that they did not explore the Daughters of the Dragon story arc.
The tightly-knit universe of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The Punisher slowly loosened the rope that held them altogether when Netflix axed all of Marvel’s TV shows. After ending all the series with huge cliffhangers, presuming sequels were on the way, it was really disappointing for fans.
For Iron Fist’s Colleen Wing actress, it was about her own plot with Simone Missick’s Misty Knight. She said, “I definitely would’ve loved to have done more Daughters of the Dragon-type stuff with Simone.”
She shares having great chemistry with Simone on and off-screen but she’s more ecstatic to portray Colleen Wing on a higher level. “Colleen had a great journey. It was this real zero-to-hero type moment for her at the end of season two.”
Colleen Wing is a martial arts expert who managed to unlock the power of the Iron Fist. In the season finale, we finally witnessed her wield the power using her signature katana. In this case, it was something most fans would have loved to see in the third season.
In other news, Marvel Television head Jeph Loeb said in an interview that The Defenders could possibly reemerge on another streaming platform. “It depends on the showrunner, it depends on the availability of the cast, all of those things,” he explained.
After the launch of Disney+ and Netflix removing Marvel-based TV shows, particularly The Defenders series, there have been so many programming shifts happening all at once.
Fans can only hope to see Marvel revive The Defenders universe under Disney+ or Hulu platform down the line.
