Deadline.com is reporting that Marvel is indeed going to be making an Iron Fist movie. We all heard rumors that Disney wants Marvel to further develop their character library, making “B-Listers” into “A-Listers”, so an Iron Fist movie could be the first of many “B-List” characters undergoing the treatment.
Deadline.com is saying that a screenwriter has already been hired, Rich Wilkes, who wrote such cinematic gems like XXX (Vin Diesel), The Dirt, and Ballad of the Whiskey Robber for Johnny Depp. Sorry, but my hate of XXX has me a bit sour on this choice, if true.
I’m a huge Iron Fist fan and am hoping that a movie is made. But, my hopes are that we get more Immortal Iron Fist rather then Power Man & Iron Fist. Just personal preference, have no idea what this movie is going to end up being like. Anyway, make of it what you will.
