In a recent interview with Inverse, Finn Jones spoke about The Defenders and how the improved Iron Fist fight scenes will translate to Season 2 of his solo series. In the interview, Jones said:
“Now, just gonna let you know, moving into Season 2 of Iron Fist, I’m actually starting my training next week. We’re at least four or five months away from shooting, so this time around, I’m being given a lot more preparation leading up to Season 2, which I think is really gonna have a huge improvement on the quality of the fight scenes in Season 2 of Iron Fist”
After the first season of ‘Iron Fist’ premiered, it was revealed that the cast had little to no training, preparing fight choreography minutes before they shot scenes. One of the many criticisms from the first season of ‘Iron Fist’ came from the ‘horrible’ fight choreography displayed. Danny Wu, star of the martial arts show ‘Into the Badlands’, was one of those who criticized the fight scenes in ‘Iron Fist’ Season 1, saying:
The actors on Badlands put themselves through the ringer for two years trying to be good martial artists. 6 hours a day for 5 weeks, 5 months of filming and then months of extra work in the off season. We kick ass because we work hard. So I have no respect for a “martial arts show” after seeing the literal blood, sweat and tears our cast puts itself through.
The improvement of fight choreography and execution was tremendously seen in Marvel’s ‘The Defenders’. Fans who didn’t enjoy the first season of ‘Iron Fist’ should be pleased to hear this news.
