- Actor Peter Shinkoda (who played Nobu in 'Daredevil') has revealed that his character used to have a much bigger storyline but producers were forced to shut it down because Jeph Loeb (former head of Marvel TV) told them and the writers 'Nobody cares about chinese and asian people, there was an entire trilogy with Blade where they killed 200 asians and nobody gives a shit, so don't write about them.'
- Jeph Loeb was actually fired as head of Marvel TV and Kevin Feige took over the TV division as well. (Which has actually improved in diversity, yet still baby steps because... well, it's still Disney).
- Jeph Loeb also wore a Karate outfit to the 'Ironfist' comic-con panel.
I asked Jeph Loeb why Marvel in the 21st century was still doing “white guy becomes master of magic in Asia” stories, and he looked me right in the eye and said it was because Danny Rand had to be an outsider. https://t.co/55xJuLQhQK— Katharine Trendacosta (@k_trendacosta) July 20, 2018
