Iron Fist is trending. No, not because the Protector of K'un-Lun finally got a reboot, but because Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige overlooked the series and character during a now-viral comment made at Disney+'s TCA stop on Wednesday. After a member of the press slammed the shows produced by Marvel Television, suggesting they weren't as popular as other Marvel Studios offerings, the Marvel Studios exec stuck up for the shows and their fanbases by applauding the fans of shows like Daredevil and Jessica Jones.
"I think there are legions of Agents of SHIELD fans, and Daredevil fans, and Jessica Jones fans, and Luke Cage fans who would disagree with you," Feige said on the virtual presentation. While the mega-producer also omitted other shows like Cloak & Dagger and Runaways, Iron Fist is the lone series that was part of Netflix's The Defenders crossover.

I would like to remind that while Season 1 of Iron Fist was certifiably hot garbage, Season 2 is exceptional.

PM & IF When?
Say what you will about Iron Fist as a series, but Finn Jones and Mike Colter had some top-tier chemistry... and I would still gladly watch a Power Man & Iron Fist spinoff. #Marvel pic.twitter.com/l9OK9qrODQ— Noah E. Dominguez (@NoahDominguez_) February 24, 2021

The Punisher, Iron Fist, Runaways, Cloak & Dagger and Agent Carter: “Hey, what about us?!”— Some Dude From Maryland (@DootDootYeah) February 24, 2021
I wouldn't even say Iron Fist season 1 was hot garbage, but most of it was not good at all. More a D or C- than straight up F. But season 2 tho? 🔥🔥🔥🔥— Uncanny Kev (@WeaponXKP21) February 24, 2021
