The first-look trailer for Iron Fist from San Diego Comic-Con. The snake in the logo is, of course, the same snake that was on the little drug packages The Hand was selling.

Sure, Arrow and Flash have been pretty good shows so far but I have to admit that Marvel is staring to catch up and surpass DC on the small screen, as well.

Oh cannot wait! So happy to see a trailer!

Here's what I said about the snake in the DD thread:

Okay, so I binge-watched the entire season over the weekend like I expected I would.

It was worth the wait and it was worth binge-watching. The action is really good and the plot and characters are engaging.

We didn't get as many crossover characters as I would have liked but Hogarth (Carrie-Anne Moss' character, the high-profile lawyer) and Claire showed up. I am beginning to think the entire series of shows is about Claire--she knows all 4 main characters now.

Probably the most entertaining character is still Madame Gao--she is everywhere yet always behind the scenes. She didn't really have much to do in Jessica Jones or Luke Cage but we don't know how linked the Hand and that corporation behind the experiments might be.

I've watched 2 episodes so far and was shocked to find that I found them border line...boring. What I've seen so far is on such a slow burn that I find myself being distracted by sketchy acting and questionable film-making. My wife refuses to watch anymore and she absolutely loved both seasons of Daredevil. I will go back and try to finish the season but only because I feel like I'll be missing something important if I don't see it through to the end. I hope I feel like Hashi does about it when I'm done.

I'm with Tom. I've seen 2 episodes and am nearly bored to tears. I'll give it one more episode before giving up.

The first several episodes of both Jessica Jones and Luke Cage were somewhat boring, as well, if you recall. A slow start does not equate to a bad show, in my opinion. Babylon 5, arguably one of the best TV shows in television history, got off to a slow start, as well--the first season is a little painful to sit through now that I have all the DVDs.

I've not gone back to Netflix yet (another week or two), but the consensus I'm hearing (not just from critics) is that it's slow, pointless, and the action is bad. So...

Haters gonna hate. *shrug* I liked it and I readily recommend it for anyone interested in the MTVU.

I did binge-watch the whole thing. Mainly because I wanted the background of the Iron Fist for The Defenders.

I enjoyed it overall and I like the premise of the character, but the show was sort of all over the place. I think the plot, pacing and story line could have been much stronger with a little tweaking.

Still, I think it's worth the watching.
