It was bound to happen at some time or another… Marvel was bound to receive negative reviews at some point. That day has come and Finn Jones isn’t taking it well. And he has blamed everyone, including Donald Trump, for the negative reception.

Finn Jones Is Blaming Everyone But His Mother For Negative Reviews Of 'Iron Fist'

Critics have not been kind to Marvel’s Iron Fist. We’ve heard every critique from whitewashing to bad storytelling to bad editing. Well, Finn Jones is sticking by the Netflix show and defending it. In a recent interview with Radio Times, the actor even blamed U.S. President Donald Trump:

“I think the world has changed a lot since we were filming that television show. I’m playing a white American billionaire superhero, at a time when the white American billionaire archetype is public enemy number one, especially in the US. We filmed the show way before Trump’s election, and I think it’s very interesting to see how that perception, now that Trump’s in power, how it makes it very difficult to root for someone coming from white privilege, when that archetype is public enemy number one. Danny is a fish out of water, and you don’t really understand where he’s coming from. But I think there’s also a level of intrigue. People need to see the full series–’Iron Fist’ doesn’t end until the last episode of ‘Defenders.’ He really goes on a journey of self-discovery, and grows into the role. It’s paced out; it’s a long journey.”

Of course, this isn’t the first time he has defended the fourth Defender show. In an interview with Metro, Jones also weighed in on critics:

“Well I think there’s multiple factors. What I will say is these shows are not made for critics, they are first and foremost made for the fans. I also think some of the reviews we saw were seeing the show through a very specific lens, and I think when the fans of the Marvel Netflix world and fans of the comic books view the show through the lens of just wanting to enjoy a superhero show, then they will really enjoy what they see. I think it’s a fantastic show which is really fun and I think it stands up there with the other Defenders’ shows without a doubt.”

At least someone in the world knows how Ben Affleck feels defending Batman v Superman. We’ll wait until Netflix releases Iron Fist before we pass judgement.

    Yeah I wasn’t to big on the casting I don’t really like Iron Fist in the comics or otherwise. The only one I gave a shit the only one I like is Daredevil all the other Netflix shows suck to me Jessica Jones garbage Luke Cage the only good thing about Luke Cage is the cast and the music everything else was trash

    Yeah it was a fail, because there was already a movie called “Man with the Iron Fists” which was awesome. He should try being a little bit more creative with new ideas and stop following the Hollywood decline.

      Ummm… the comic book character has existed for years. Since 1974. The Quentin Tarantino movie was made in 2012.

      Also, the actor playing Iron Fist didn’t create the character so I’m not sure how “he” should be more creative. All he did was audition.

        Bryan are you a moron or something? First Iron Fist is older than the Man With Iron Fist and second it’s not even a film. Plus how about watching it before you make assumptions. Another idiot led by the news!!’

    I have watched the first series and it’s not bad but could be better. The writers need to have Danny much more confident in himself, Finn needs more time training to be a martial arts. I am a 2nd degree blackbelt and getting it right takes time and practice . The fight choreographer needs to improve the look of Danny’s fighting . I have seen people with less training look better and it comes down to fight choreographer and fight editor. Hopefully by the time we see the Defenders all will have continued to improve to make a good program , great .
