Yes. I’ve watched all 13 episodes of Marvel’s “Iron Fist” on Netflix already. They were just released on Friday. I have no excuse. I realize this was not a wise use of my time.

Combined with the seemingly endless stream of superhero flicks, it would be understandable for audiences to ask the question, “Why all the remakes?”
