There were a huge variety of complaints about what we ended up seeing in ‘The Defenders‘ when it aired earlier this year, and one YouTuber decided he had the perfect solution for the final fight scene and I have to say he was right! The first team up which we saw on screen with Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, and Iron Fist in The Hand’s office building was great, but the final fight seemed to lack some of that oomph which we first experienced. You can criticize Iron Fist in general for the show, but it was this final fight which drew many complaints as the tension just wasn’t there. If you can’t make a fight scene scary, you need it to be fun, and just by changing the soundtrack we get to see just that!
I do have to warn you though before you check this out if you haven’t seen ‘The Defenders’ that this will visually spoil much of the final fight from the series.

I laughed, I cried, and I loved seeing every moment of this fight play out this way! It is amazing how something so simple as adding in a different song can make an entire scene play out different right before your eyes. Also, who doesn’t love Carl Douglas’s ‘Kung Fu Fighting’! We already know that ‘Daredevil’ Season 3 is going to address what happened to Matt Murdock at the end of this specific fight, now we can watch the fight that put him there and enjoy it too!
Were you happy with the original version of the final fight from ‘The Defenders’ or do you think this take did it better justice? Are there any other songs that would be good to swap out for Marvel’s fight scenes? Share your thoughts below True Believers!
