    Half the Defenders are Brits!

    I'm ok with the choice.

    Marvel Netflix hasn't failed me yet with the casting choices.

    Awesome. I only know him from GOT, but he's good on that.

    Good choice! Hopefully he can pull off Danny's sense of humor.

    I haven't watched GoT in ages so I don't have much point of reference for this guy. Hopefully this guy pulls off the role. I'm just glad someone has been cast and they're still moving onto the Iron Fist series.

    No idea who this guy is. Will he look good with a dragon tattooed on his chest?

    SJW on Tumblr are going crazy as well.

    Reminds me of when the SJW on Tumblr started saying they will boycott Doctor Strange because they cast a white actor in the role :loco:

    The irony is these folks are just as bad as the people that get mad about Heimdall or Johnny Storm being played by black actors :whatever:

    I like Ser Loras. Not a bad choice at all.

    Why the f*** are people complaining about the Iron Fist actor being white? Even Collider commented: "it would have been nice to cast an Asian-American in the role instead of the whitest dude imaginable"

    ANyway, don't know about the actor. Don't remember him from GoT (I dont remember most of the characters). Hope he does well

    Great. Another white man playing a white character.

    Reminds me when they cast Spider-Man and Nick Mundy commented: "Congrats to another boring white dude"

    I mean, as a black person myself I find the whole thing just stupid.

    Username checks out. Haha.


    It's just another case of news media feeling the need to have an opinion.

    Maybe it's better if the Asian/Asian-American non-issue is kept within the thread dedicated to it. I wouldn't want to see this thread bogged down by something that just isn't worth considering, especially since he has been cast now. Just my thoughts.

    It'd be kind of interesting if they could swing him looking like he does early on in GoT

    until he masters the Iron Fist, at which point he gets totally jacked.

    Casting a white guy for a white character, marvel is so racist.

    If Mike Colter was correct, I'm sure Jones has been cast for a while. He looks to be in better shape from his most recent pics.

    He probably trained, the marvel training can give abs to anyone.

    Wouldn't it have been arguably more racist to cast an Asian in the role of a kung-fu expert? I feel like that would've ruffled even more feathers.

    Almost every guy that plays a Marvel superhero gets into shape. Even Rudd lost a bit of weight to play Ant-Man and his costume covers his entire body.

    This was always going to be a lose/lose situation for Marvel. the character is great but at the same time very problematic.

    My main issue has always been that tiresome trope of a white dude going into another culture, submerging himself in it, and somehow emerging as the best that culture has to offer. Its the same reason why The Last Samurai was such a face-palmer for a lot of people despite the movie being pretty solid.
