In the critics against Marvel’s Iron Fist, the AMC series Into The Badlands was often mentioned as how the fights should have been done. One of the stars of the series, Daniel Wu, was asked about their Netflix competition in an interview with Screen Anarchy.
Wu was asked his thoughts on the comparisons between the two series.
At first I was nervous about the competition. But now I kind of feel bad for them, because they are getting slammed so hard. It’s one thing to be bad or whatever about the martial arts, it is still something that a lot of people put a lot of effort into, so to get slammed like that – I’ve definitely worked on projects where I’ve been on that end of the stick before and so it kind of sucks. I’m happy for us but at the same time kind of feel bad for them, but [simultaneously] it’s like if you’re going to do a martial arts show, then you’ve got to step the fuck up.
