Marvel Studios plans a revival of the Daughters of the Dragon for Disney Plus. The duo of Colleen Wing and Misty Knight nearly saved Netflix’ Iron Fist from being unwatchable.
Jessica Henwick and Simone Missick played the duo on Netflix’ now-defunct Marvel TV programs.
Their presence was crucial on Iron Fist.
After all, a soft lead (Finn Jones), lackluster action, and monotonous corporate melodrama dragged the series into the ground.
Fans howled in disappointment at its cheapness, lack of costumes, and unlikeable characters.
Nevertheless, Henwick and Missick charmed and electrified viewers.
The casting of Colleen Wing and Misty Knight was dynamite in both instances.
Before Netflix, a Daughters of the Dragon TV show was developed in 2001; however, it wasn’t green lit.
Furthermore, the Daughters of the Dragon were meant to spin off in their own Netflix show before all of the Marvel series bit the dust.
Marvel Interested In Daughters of the Dragon For Disney Plus
Writer Chris Claremont and artist Marshall Rogers co-created the Daughters of the Dragon for Deadly Hands of Kung Fu No. 32 in 1977.
Marvel Studios expects the upcoming theatrical movie Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings to create a massive interest in martial-arts projects.
Furthermore, it opens another genre for Marvel Studios to refresh superheroes.
Daughters of the Dragon would branch out from the Iron Fist reboot.
Marvel Studios is interested in having Henwick and Missick reprise their roles but no discussions have begun yet.
We’re looking at years from now.
Marvel Studios continues to map the path ahead.
As wonderful as the Daughters of the Dragon were on those Netflix Marvel TV programs, they deserved more screen time.
The chemistry between Henwick and Missick was a blast to watch; they needed their own series.
Like with Charlie Cox as Daredevil, Kevin Feige won’t recast simply for the sake of it.
While a Daughters of the Dragon show won’t follow Netflix continuity, there’s no need to fix the casting as it wasn’t broke.
