IRON FIST looks like the first of the Mouse-Earred Marvel Films!

Published at: Aug. 25, 2010, 3:11 p.m. CST by headgeek

Hey folks, Mike Fleming over at DEADLINE - has a story on how XXX writer Rich Wilkes has been tapped to adapt Marvel's glowy pink fisted IRON FIST to the feature screen. Now back in the day, when Avi Arad was running things, they were attempting to get IRON FIST off the ground with Ray Parks "Darth Maul" being Danny Rand - whose best adventures (in my opinion) were the Claremont/Byrne stand-alone issues... And it makes me wonder if MARVEL will do what they're doing with THE AVENGERS with IRON FIST... meaning, will we get a MASTER OF THE MARTIAL ARTS - Shang-Chi film developed shortly... not to mention the LUKE CAGE film - so that we can eventually work towards a HEROES FOR HIRE film? I like to think that the Marvel folks have big "Step 1, Step 2, BIG STEP 3" style plans on the drawing board - simply because... well that's how to adapt the Marvel Universe. No matter though, the key importance is to nail IRON FIST. And this isn't an easy thing. Glowy Fist Kung Fu films tend to be scoffable. Like THE LAST DRAGON, which admittedly has some "awesome" mixed with the "ohmygod cheesy" - but when Danny's fist starts glowing, visually and audibly - it's got to make our arm hairs stand up and cheer. It has to be so cool, that it feels like nothing we've ever see in Martial Arts cinema, because this is MARVEL MARTIAL ARTS CINEMA. I would highly recommend bringing in an all-star team led my Yuen Woo Ping - that the martial arts be LONG TAKE Martial Arts and not chop-phooey the editing to such a point that visually none of it makes sense. I loved the Bronze Age exploits of Danny Rand - they should begin the process of finding their Danny Rand immediately and get him training for 6 months to a year for this role. Forge the right actor. And please make it awesome. And please keep the costume and make the visual world make sense with that costume. Fingers Crossed.

    Marital arts + superheroics = coolness

    by DEX

    Like Spyguy says, that interdimensional tournament story would make a great movie. There has to be mystical stuff, or some kind of excuse to use martial arts instead of conventional weapons. I think some Scott Pilgrim-like action scenes (a heightened reality) would be suitable for this.

    Scott Adkins. Seriously.

    They need to get Scott Adkins for this movie. The director could be Ben Ramsey or Isaac Florentine. Larnell Stovall could do the fight choreography. Of course, that would never happen, but it would be awesome.

    I'm all for these smaller Marvel films...

    by Chewtoy

    ...and I think there are a ton of mid level characters that could make for some great movies, but I do fear that Iron Fist will fall into the same trap that Punisher fell into... mainly, that audiences will see it as a generic action film, as there isn't obviously a hook to set it apart. The Punisher is an 80's action hero with a lot of guns going after criminals, and Iron Fist is a 70's martial artist. Throw in Jonah Hex as a generic cowboy, and I don't know that anyone has really cracked the way to make the comic characters that are derivative of movie archtypes really sell. (I'd have the same concerns with Luke Cage... is that really likely to do more business than the mostly-forgettable "Shaft" remake from a few years ago?)

  • Aug. 25, 2010, 4:08 p.m. CST

    I guess if they keep the budget down and...

    by Chewtoy

    ...find an appealing lead, they can probably count on "The Transporter" series level of box office. Less than the Blade movies, but reliable enough to warrant making.

    by killtaker

    Just take that first Matt Fraction and Ed Brubaker TPB and adapt it...perfect...plus the Iron Fist can do a little more with his Chi than just make his fist hard in that run. I really wish Fraction would have stuck with Iron Fist cause I could give a shit about X-Men.

    Start with Shang Chi

    by Gidney

    Go to China and tell your mainly Chinese team that you wanna do a Chinese character in a Western setting, and in a respectful way. Then you tell them that the action must be brutal, not ballet--close in stuff that you have to slow down to see properly and heavy on practical effects (no digital blood). Give us Shang without all the crouching tiger flying around horseshit. Give us Bruce Lee's first tournament fight in Enter the Dragon. Screw iron fist.

    The thing about Iron Fist...

    by AdamWarlock

    ...is the story and the character. Danny Rand goes on a mountain climbing trip with his parents, who are then killed by wolves before his eyes. And then he is picked up by Chinese immortals from the magical city of K'un L'un (amazing how that rolls of my tongue after 30 years...) and trained by Lei Kung to become their greatest warrior, only then does he get the opportunity to fight Shao Lao the Undying in order to become Iron Fist. Chris Clairmont and John Byrne did this series very well, even before X-men. Then Danny Rand must come to terms with living in the western world; he was a character that bridged two worlds. I see conflicts though because the Iron Fist is a magical power, and Thor supposedly is trying to explain Asgard as a world with advanced science that seems to be magic.....

    by kevred

    If they do all of those things, and build in some real, honest-to-goodness martial-arts credibility, it could really be something special. <p>If they see the Marvel universe as not just the same film made over and over, but the potential for a dozen different types of films (superhero, sci-fi, horror, martial arts, secret-agent stuff, etc.), it could be immensely fun and avoid getting stale.

    by TRIPLEM

    After seeing his work as Boyka in Undisputed 2 & 3,and in Ninja, there is no doubt in my mind that he alone was born to play Iron Fist, and actually can make the character believable with his skill..this video is proof: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IUR1otot39s&feature=search. I dont want to see Wire Fu and overly choregraphed shit with some actor who cant fight, I want to see a real martial artist. With the right director, he could make the most badass special effects martial arts film of all time with Scott in the lead.

    Gary Daniels as Iron Fist

    by Dark_Equalizer

    The man is made for the role, he even looks like Danny Rand ( well as much as you can ) Plus he's a martial arts ace and had far more acting experience than Ray Park ( who would still be a good choice however) . Iron Fist has had a lot more exposure in the comics recently aswell in the Avengers and the current Shadowland story. Plus Gary Daniels wont break the Budget.

    Iron Fist is NOT a super-hero film

    by Ivan_Mtl

    I completely disagree with anyone who feels that Iron Fist is a super-hero and that the makers of the proposed film should look to the Claremont/Byrne run on the comic book. I fell in love with the character and concept when he first appeared in Marvel Premier, and it was obviously influenced by the highly successful KUNG FU television series starring David Carradine. The first movie would obviously be an origin story showing how young Danny Rand witnesses the death of his father by his business partner, Harold Meachum, as well as the sacrifice of his mother to save his life. He discovers the mythical city of K'un-L'un (a city that only appears once every ten years), and is trained in the martial arts until he eventually defeats the dragon, Shou-Lao, and acquires the Iron Fist. Having "snatched the pebble from the hand" he sets out to New York to exact his revenge on the man responsible for his parents death. Meanwhile, Harold Meachum has had ample time to prepare for Iron Fist's arrival, and has hired the world's best killers to protect him. The finale in the comic is HEAVILY inspired by the Bruce Lee film, Game of Death and I encourage anyone not familiar with the character and comic book to pick up Marvel Comics Essential Iron Fist for a wonderful read.

    by BarryConvex

    I'd personally love to see a 'Secret Six' film, but I doubt it would happen with the amount of set up for a lot of the character's history (Bane, Catman, Scandal etc.) and the amount of black humor and violence it would entail. Plus, I doubt the movie going public would go for a film where the leads are a team of mercenaries whose members consist of such wonderful characters such as a former drug addicted Batman villain and a transexual contortionist clown.

    What happened to Dr. Strange?

    by krabklaw

    Didn't Disney announce less than 2 months ago that Dr. Strange would be the first Marvel property released under the Disney banner? What's with this Iron Fist stuff? Disney needs to have a major character as their first Marvel release- not Iron Fist who's not well known at all.

    by toshiro-solo

    If this film does the character's origin properly, and then - potentially - segues into something approximating the Brubaker/Fraction run from the last few years, it could be pretty damn good. That Brubaker/Fraction book is maybe the most fun I've had with a mainstream Marvel book in the last 5 years or so. Good stuff.

    Keep the Costume?

    by Akira Cowabunga

    Make a world in which it makes sense? What kind of bozo are you? Didn't ol' Danny wear capri tights and a top that was cut down to his waist? Are you fucking serious? If they want to make a homoerotic Iron Fist, that would be perfect. The only world where that costume works (outside of comics) is a very gay world. And while I have no problem with the gay lifestyle, Iron Fist was not gay. If they keep that costume, this movie most likely would only be laughable. As for the casting, it depends on if he's gay or not. If Rand is gay, cast that guy who played the Human Torch. If Rand likes vaginas, then don't cast anybody from the pretty boy crop that we get in films these days. Enough of this. Blow me.

    Anyone complaining about this character being "lame" or having a crappy costume has either; 1) Not been reading anything in the last few years with him in it, 2) Hasn't seen the update to his costume or 3) Have apparently forgotten that they took Blade (a throwaway shit character), and made a succesful flick out of it, they can do the same with Iron Fist. And yes, Tarantino directing this would be awesome, but I'd settle for Rodriguez :)

    Forget Iron Fist...

    by Grandpa Bunche

    They've gotta do Shang-Chi first. Yeah, Danny's all kinds of awesome, but Shang-Chi has no superpowers whatsover and is even more awesome than Iron Fist. They could cull an entire movie from Shang-Chi's first battle with the Cat alone, and there's tons of other stuff with him that would make for great cinema. God, to see the Infinity Blossom arc onscreen...And while the Danny and Luke stuff would definitely be fun if done right, their adventures have a considerably lighter feel to them than Shang-Chi's brooding "games of death and deceit," and I welcome the return of dark kung fu stories (I grew up on old school Shaw Brothers flicks and ultra-violent '70's Japanese karate movies, so that's my thing).

The subtle yet flavorful taste of the beef was lost because they were frying it like a goddamn burger! This is what happens when movie producers over-use Yuen Woo Ping. He was uncanny in HOng Kong, amazing in Crouching Tiger, HIdden Dragon, great in the Matrix, then someone decided to make "The Musketeer" and I'm like thinking, Ugh. Too much, overplayed.

    What kind of stupid-ass thinking is that? The majority of moviegoers aren't going to look at an IRON FIST movie and think "Hmmm...I don't know who Iron Fist is, but he's not an A-list guy like Spider-Man or Captain America so I'm going to pass." No, they're going to look at the trailer and decide if this superhero martial arts flick looks cool enough to check out on the big screen. And I'm guessing the martial arts aspect will be played up far more than the superhero aspect, so again, it doesn't matter a damn bit how "C-list" Iron Fist is.

I've got to be honest, I don't get the gay jibes, though my experience extends to the Brubaker/Fraction Immortal Iron Fist rather than the forgotten 70's stuff.<p>Basically, if they put some decent money behind it and get a director who knows how to direct kung fu AND mainstream adventure it could be something special.

    Heroes for Hire, I say yes to as well

    by leo54304

    But with just Cage and Danny as the primary members. Colleen and Misty should get lots of screen time but as friendly competition. In the end all work together to take down bad guys.<br> Last scene of movie has Danny opening door to his darkened apartment and theres Colleen standing the doorway. Says something like "Need some company tonight?".<fr> For origins have 'em do it verbally w/o flashbacks while guys either are on stake out, having lunch or in their office.

    Byrne series sucked, GIl Kane is the king

    by theplant

    Anyone who wanks over the Byrne Iron Fist should get a fist of iron in the arse. Gil Kane ruled.

    Low Budget Superhero Webseries on Youtube

    Here is a link to a comic webseries I created about the last two sons of Zeus and their adventures trying to find the Golden Fleece in Los Angeles. http://tinyurl.com/28x5797

    I'm not insulting your screen name.

    by Dingbatty

    I'm just pointing out that just because something is ridiculous doesn't mean that it sucks. Superhero comic books and their milieu are meant to be ridiculous. That's what makes them fun.

    Also, how does IF not translate well on the screen?

    by Dingbatty

    Iron Fist has never been in a live action movie. And what do you mean by "translate well?" Superman's costume is silly, but Christopher Reeve sold that role. Hell, even as mindfully silly and campy the 60's Batman show was, it's still damn entertaining, and I still buy Adam West and Burt Ward as superheroes (and all the actors playing villains are fun to watch, as well).

    Holy shit, people who type "meh" suck.

    by schadenfreudian

    They're as bad as fat white women in accounting who still say, "You go girl." <br> I just wanted to say that.

    They Should Go With "Moon Knight" Instead

    by Media Messiah

    "Iron Fist" will be a real mistake to launch Disney's fist Marvel film with. "Moon Knight" is the comic book film adaptation they should be making.

    Moon Knight is cool, but the general public

    by Dennis_Moore

    would mistake him for a KKK member (and the character is Jewish, which would alienate the people happy that he looks like a KKK member). Also, he wears a waning moon on his costume. Bad mojo. They really should make it waxing.
