  1. I agree with you about your thoughts on character development. Iron Fist is one the more frustrating examples. Some writers/producers/directors are just not comfortable with taking a character out of the tried and true mold, either that or they may be afraid that the character will not be well received. To refuse to let a character grow and change or even worse take them back to square one is one the worst things you can do to them.
    I think it’s one of the reasons On Her Majesty’s Secret Service is one of my favorite Bond movies. He grows and falls in love with a woman he respects only to be reminded in the end why he should never get close to anyone. Problem is that’s never referenced in any of the following movies, and Bond goes back to the character we all know and are comfortable with: never changing.

    I would say the extent of cinematic Bucky’s character development is his choice at the end of Civil War. But we don’t see the decision process in the film itself.

  3. For women in the MCU, especially the Netflix shows, “development” seems to be either Joss Whedon’s misogynistic nonsense or “sleep with man under false pretenses.” It’s troubling.

  4. Ermm, sorry but you are *wrong* about Danny Rand.

    He doesn’t fail to summon the Iron Fist because he is dumb, but because using it on an ordinary human would kill said human – something Danny is not prepared to do.
