Iron Fist could get the MCU treatment he deserves from The Legend Of The Ten Rings’. Or at least this is what the director says, so after confirming a new Marvel show. In addition to directing the Shang-Chi sequel, director Destin Daniel Cretton has signed on to direct a Disney+ MCU series. There are only a few details about the show at this time. Nonetheless, The Legend of the Ten Rings post-credit scene hinted at the show’s central theme: Xialing’s command of the Ten Rings.
Many Marvel fans have been calling for a character reboot ever since the Netflix series Iron Fist premiered. Critics and viewers alike have been unkind to the series on Netflix, calling it the worst of the Defenders franchise. Fans have been eagerly awaiting the return of Iron Fist since the show’s cancellation in October 2018. Moreover, Danny Rand’s MCU debut is likely to happen in Cretton’s MCU Disney+ Show.
Ever since Charlie Cox’s confirmed return to the Daredevil role in the MCU, Iron Fist has been long overdue for an introduction. Because of the Ten Rings’ activities, a new series that Chris Cretton directs could be the perfect opportunity to integrate Iron Fist into the MCU. In comics, Fin Fang Foom is linked to the Ten Rings, and Iron Fist is linked to Fin Fang Foom.
A race of shape-shifters called the Makkluans crash-landed on Earth many millennia ago. As a result, the Mandarin was the one to recover their rings from the wreckage. He is the most popular Makkluan character and has tried to get the rings from the Mandarin on multiple occasions. Fin Fang Foom. Shang-Chi was rumored to be Fin Fang Foom’s first appearance in the MCU. However, he was axed to avoid tarnishing the family-centered narrative.
The character of Fin Fang Foom could be combined with that of Shou-Lao instead of being retold in its entirety by Marvel Studios. To prove his Iron Fist worthiness, Danny Rand had to defeat Shou-Lao, the dragon guarding K’un-Lun, the enigmatic city where he was raised and trained. Iron Fist may join forces with the Ten Rings organization to thwart an attack by the Foom-Lao hybrid. This could retain its Makkluan origins and steal the rings from the compound.
For now, there is no release date for the Ten Rings show. However, it is expected that more information will emerge in the near future. Introducing Iron Fist in the Ten Rings show before he joins the Avengers or gets his project could help clear up the confusion regarding the Netflix MCU characters’ reboot. No matter how Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings director decide to handle Iron Fists, the martial artist will appear in a Marvel Studios film at some point.
