Its a reference to a gun-fu thing from the comics several years ago.  And basically a tease as to what storylines from the comics a third season might be built around.

Yeah, that's gun-fu related.  I'm trying to be vague so as to not spoil both the ending of the season and a bunch of comic stories in one swipe.

Its from the comics about 10 years ago.  If you do some web searching about Orson Randall, it will fill in a lot of the blanks.

The power wasnít in the guns. He just focused the iron fist thru the guns. The power was still within him.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand its gone.

Marvel and Netflix have announced that Iron Fist is cancelled.  They mentioned that the character would live on.  Since they have announced that they aren't planning another season of Defenders, that may just be a general statement.  Its also very possible that they might do Heroes for Hire and/or Daughters of the Dragon, now that they've tied the characters together in the already released seasons.

Good riddance. Hopefully in the future someone will come along and do justice to Danny Rand and his story.

-C!

Just finished Season 2 and I have to say I really enjoyed it!  Very sad to hear that it's cancelled, and now LUKE CAGE too!

Of course, I was afraid that something like this would happen when Disney announced its own streaming service.  I initially got Netflix just to watch the Marvel shows, so I imagine that I would actually go for the Disney deal if these shows move there.

I really liked Colleen and Misty and would really like to see them at least continue, perhaps in their own series.  I could actually see it on regular TV, with 100 episodes in five years.  But I even like Ward and Joy--or at least the actors playing them--and I will miss seeing their growth.

But even though they say they're not planning it, I wouldn't mind a POWERMAN/IRONFIST show or a continuation of (this version of) THE DEFENDERS.

But if these shows really weren't that profitable, it would make more sense to move the characters to the movies.  If characters like BLACK PANTHER and ANT-MAN can be big stars and make a billion or half a billion dollars, why not LUKE CAGE and IRON FIST?

My main concern is that the "street level" superhero
theme is a bit samey, i know the same thing can be said
about the outright superhero theme, but that isn`t
competing with Police procedurals which have similar
villains to the "street level" shows, plus they struggle
to stretch out a storyline for 13 episodes.

Shot in the dark here, but by cancelling "Iron Fist" & "Luke Cage", could that mean  they're making way for "Heroes For Hire"?

When they cancelled Iron Fist,
they didn't say why, really,
but inbetween the 2 cancellings
they stated that only they
(Netflix) have the power to
cancel the Marvel shows.

The reason they gave for Luke
Cage was that they couldn't
negotiate a deal with Disney
for more seasons.

I'd guess Disney won't
negotiate in a way that makes
more seasons possible, for
Netflix, when all their Marvel
series come up for
renegotiating.

Apparently the original Disney/Netflix deal covered all the shows up to Defenders.  Everything since then has been negotiated on a per season basis, including the Punisher as a new show with a second season now filming.  Iron Fist's cancellation was no surprise.  While season 2 did much better than season 1, it still only had a 53% on Rotten Tomatoes and the lowest streaming rate.  Luke Cage was more of a surprise in that it had been doing better, but it likely came down to money.

Disney is launching its own streaming service, and the movie part of the Netflix deal has been allowed to expire.  Disney has also announced that they're planning to have new Marvel shows on that service.  I imagine that this puts Disney in a power position during these show negotiations to make demands, and for all but the highest rated programs, Netflix may not want to meet them.  

I have a feeling the current round of Marvel shows, meaning the next seasons of Punisher and Jessica Jones may be the last, though there's always the possibility that if Daredevil season 3 is doing as well as the previous two, Netflix might be welling to shell out the premium cost of doing another season or two.

Can't say I'm sad to see any of these shows go. I was growing tired of slow pacing and shows desperately trying to escape their comic books roots. 

Only DAREDEVIL has held up, in my opinion (though I've yet to see season 3).
