Similarities between Iron Fist and Wu Assassins
It’s not even a week and viewers have already started comparing the new Wu Assassins series with Iron Fist. However, they are somewhat right. After watching the Wu Assassins series you will notice both the shows are based on action sequences. Plus, both of them try to fight the villains with their superpowers.
Apart from that, these two series are set in the coastal region of America. Besides, both the shows contain the same actor, Lewis Tan. But in the new series, he looks charming as ever. One more good thing about Wu Assassins is that the characters can actually fight!

Kai gains numerous abilities and becomes faster and stronger after being the Wu Assassin. Besides, the show also features a long-dead monk played by Mark Dacascos. Iko Uwais plays Kai Jin. Besides, Netflix has already added the first three episodes on August 8, 2019.
Why Kai Jin is far better than the Iron Fist?
Iko Uwais is an Indonesian actor as well as a martial artist who performed all the brutal fight scenes on his own. He portrays the character of Kai Jin who is a skilful fighter.
Plus, his elbows and fists moment is so fast that even camera struggles to catch up with his speed. In the series, Kai Jin always disappears in the spirit world.
