Marvel’s latest Netflix show, Iron Fist is now here and acts as the final outing in the run-up to the much-anticipated Defenders miniseries. So, how does it measure up to the rest of the lot? Well, sadly, it hasn’t been met with the same warmth – from critics, at least, as fans seem to love it all the same.

Ever since Daredevil slipped in callbacks to Captain America and Thor, the Netflix series like to remind us every now and then that they’re part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
