    Cho is great as Hulk, and I'm glad Hawkeye killed Bruce. Come at me bro.

    This is a fallacious argument presented by people pushing their agenda. The Last Samurai is where you make this argument. No, you make TV shows about Asian characters you have already created. So, maybe they should have done a show based on Colleen Wing. Also, as Omega noted, do Shang Chi.

    Most people have little to no idea who Jessica Jones is or was and look what happened. You do a good show and people will watch.

    I still find it funny how huge the uproar is about Danny Rand and Steve Harvey's jokes, but there was only a minor Blip when The Ancient one was played by a British Woman. No, the uproar was nowhere near the crying FOR THREE YEARS over Iron Fist being white.

    Used to kick me in the balls every chance you got. Obviously the villain was a student of Krabby McGraw.

    I was hoping the reviews where whiny cry baby **** like some of the ones for Luke Cage. Unfortunately, while some are overly dramatic, this is a pretty average show. Compared to the other four marvel Netflix seasons, it is sub par.

    Not sure if I have the patience for another one of these. Luke Cage was pretty draggy already. I'm all in with Jessica Jones though, that was fantastic. Hope season 2 can be as good. Daredevil fell off considerably from season 1 to 2.

    Daredevil season 2 was worth it just for the punisher stuff.

    Incidentally, two of the most prominent characters in Marvel's ABC show are Chinese and half-Chinese respectively:





    Honestly, I really don't give much of a **** when TV/movie adaptations switch around the races of characters from books. Unless race is a critical, defining feature of the character (Which, admittedly, is usually more the case with non-white characters in American works), I'm cool with it so long as the finished product is actually good. I was fine with Michael Clark Duncan Kingpin (He was one of the saving graces of the 2003 Daredevil movie), for instance, and black Ben Urich was good, too. I more than likely would've been OK with an Asian Danny Rand, as well.

    Here's the thing, though: When the creators of an adaptation decide to stay true to their source material and NOT color-paint a canonically white character, bloggers should shut the **** up as they have no reason to complain. I understand Hollywood has a history of whitewashing "ethnic" characters, but two Wongs don't make a White.

    Initial thoughts on first few episodes. The story line is decent but the fighting choreography is terrible. I think they're truly trying to emphasize the Chi Kung aspect of the K'un L'un style.
