eldabe: A picture of Aqualad from the Teen Titans TV Seires (Aqualad with pants!)
When I heard that Iron Fist was going to be the fourth Marvel/Netflix series (after Luke Cage OMG guys Luke Cage) I literally only had one reaction: They have to cast a Chinese man for Danny or it's going to be racist. I mean, in a pinch, they could cast a Pacific Asian actor and it would be slightly racist. But they obviously, obviously, couldn't cast a white guy, right?

*sigh

I think the worst part of that article is the comments section. I thought it was a well-written, clear critique of the problem of casting a white Iron Fist. And the comments exploded into indignant fan rage. Then I remember why I've never gotten very far into the organized comic books fandom.

I guess Marvel should have made an Ultimate Iron Fist first, huh?

What? Me? Bitter?
