Finn Jones and the rest of the cast and crew behind 'Marvel's Iron Fist' are in for some big celebrations.
When the reviews for Marvel's 'Iron Fist' came out earlier this year, fans of the comic book property and those that have enjoyed predecessors 'Daredevil', 'Jessica Jones' and 'Luke Cage' on Netflix were shocked to see the hugely negative reaction to the fourth instalment in the collaborative series.

Now sitting with a score of 17% on review aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes, with verified critics on the platform giving 44 'rotten' reviews and just nine 'fresh', many didn't hold out much hope for an exciting and engaging story when the show hit the streaming platform for all to see. Consumers seemed to enjoy what they got however, with 81% of the audience saying they liked the show and an average rating of the series sitting at just over four out of five.
Iron Fist co-creator Roy Thomas 'tries not think' about the critics of the Netflix/Marvel series, because he has 'so little patience' for them.
Marvel's latest Netflix collaboration 'Iron Fist' has caused quite the stir. Though critics were quick to slam the new series as the first dud to come from the streaming service and comic book company's team-up, viewers across the globe have voted in their numbers, going against what the professionals had to say and landing the show an 84% audience score on reviews aggregate site, Rotten Tomatoes.

Whether it's a lack of action, character development or something else entirely, most criticism can be shrugged off, but a section of the public who didn't enjoy their time with 'Iron Fist' are now accusing those behind the character of 'whitewashing'; a term used to describe when a major release TV series, film or other property uses a white actor in the place of one of a minority that would have been better suited to take the role.

Cast members were asked some hilarious questions at the Game of Thrones Season 4 premiere, take a look at some of their answers.
The lucky BuzzFeed team were at the season four premiere event for Game of Thrones, and managed to ask the cast some rather personal, but also hilarious questions. BuzzFeed asked the cast members they managed to flag down what email addresses they think that their characters would have, as well as which mythological creature they would take into battle with them. They didn't get the chance to ask Emilia this question, but we have a sneaking suspicion we know the answer to that one anyway!
Emilia Clarke plays Daenerys Targaryan in Game of Thrones
First up was Mother of Dragons, Daenerys Targaryen, played by Emilia Clarke. Emilia’s email answer was probably our favourite, responding that Dany’s would probably be “email@example.com”. Sounds pretty spot on to us, especially after watching the most recent trailer, which sees her character determinedly claim “I will answer injustice with justice.” We can’t wait to see the Khalessi bring it in season four!
