    Scott Adkins could be good.

    After Immortal Iron Fist though, I would tend to see a more wiry guy in the role. Adkins is built, and I don't know if I see Danny Rand quite like that.

    I'd like for them to go with an unknown, preferably with acting chops close to their martial skills.

    Scott Adkins would be awesome as the opiumed-out predecessor though.

    Marvel's Netflix Series to Film in New York City
    New York City to serve as principal filming location for four series epic and one mini-series!

    Published
    Feb 26, 2014

    Feb 26, 2014

    Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, The Walt Disney Company, Marvel and Netflix Inc. today announced that Marvel's landmark live-action television series, which will bring Marvel's "flawed heroes of Hell's Kitchen" characters to Netflix, the world's leading Internet TV network, will principally film in New York State. Produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Television Studios, this groundbreaking series is Marvel's most ambitious foray yet into live-action television storytelling and represents the largest film or television production project commitment in New York State history.


    Daredevil
    Daredevil will be the first series from Marvel and Netflix to film in New York City

    Filming is set to begin in the Summer 2014 and will create at least three thousand jobs in New York State including up to 400 full time jobs. The project will include nearly 60 one-hour episodes focused on the 4 Defenders characters: Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist.

    "New York is where the entertainment industry started, and this unprecedented commitment from Disney and Marvel is further evidence that we're bringing it back bigger and better than ever before," said Governor Cuomo. "And when the entertainment industry thrives, it fuels dozens of other industries and businesses. The competition for these projects is fierce and Disney could have chosen to film these shows anywhere, but they knew that shooting in New York means getting to work with the best in world. These shows bring New York's super heroes home where they belong--along with hundreds of jobs and millions of dollars in new business."

    "Since 2008 Disney has directly contributed almost half a billion dollars to New York's economy through television and film production, along with approximately 9,000 jobs for New Yorkers," said Robert A. Iger, Chairman and CEO, The Walt Disney Company. "The Governor's policies make this great state a more affordable and attractive location, opening the door for even greater economic investment and job creation for New Yorkers. Our Marvel series for Netflix will inject millions directly into the local economy and create hundreds of new jobs."


    Jessica Jones
    "We thank the Governor and the great state of New York for helping us create the ultimate backdrop to this epic series. Setting our production in New York City truly underscores the authenticity and excitement we plan to bring to The Defenders and their 'flawed heroes of Hell's Kitchen' stories," said Alan Fine, President, Marvel Entertainment.

    Last November, Disney and Netflix announced an unprecedented deal for Marvel TV to bring multiple original series of live-action adventures of four of Marvel's most popular characters exclusively to the world's leading Internet TV Network beginning in 2015. This pioneering agreement calls for Marvel to develop four serialized programs totaling 52 one-hour episodes culminating in a four to eight episode mini-series programming event. Led by a series focused on "Daredevil," followed by "Jessica Jones," "Iron Fist" and "Luke Cage," the epic will unfold over multiple years of original programming, taking viewers deep into the gritty world of heroes and villains of Hell's Kitchen, New York. Netflix has committed to a minimum of four, thirteen episodes series and a mini-series event in which the Marvel characters from the first four series team up as "The Defenders," much like "The Avengers."


    Luke Cage
    This new original TV deal follows last year's landmark movie distribution deal through which, beginning with 2016 theatrically released feature films, Netflix will be the exclusive U.S. subscription television service for first-run, live-action and animated movies from the Walt Disney Studios, including titles from Disney, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios, Marvel Studios, Disneynature and Lucasfilm.

    "The Defenders are classic New York characters; smart, resourceful and tough enough to always stand up for what's right," said Ted Sarandos, Netflix Chief Content Officer. "We're delighted they're coming to life on their home turf thanks to Governor Cuomo and his team."

    When Governor Cuomo took office in 2011, he made the attraction of the film and television production and post production industries, and jobs and the economic impact they bring with them, a key part of his overall strategy to grow New York State's economy. Since that time, he has signed into law several important changes to both programs to make New York more competitive in this global marketplace, and the results have been significant. Both programs enjoyed record-breaking years in 2013, bringing billions of dollars in new spending and thousands of jobs into the Empire State. The stability provided by multiyear funding has particularly encouraged the development of television series production work, like the new Marvel series, as well as long term investments in infrastructure, all of which creates thousands of jobs directly and indirectly related to the actual productions themselves.


    Iron Fist
    During calendar year 2013, applications for 183 film productions were submitted that included 124 films, 33 television programs and 26 pilots. These projects will:

    -Generate a direct spend of $2.11 billion in NYS;

    -Collect a projected $477 million in credits; and

    -Hire an estimated 128,165 actors and crew for the 183 projects submitted.

    John Ford, President, International Alliance of Theatrical and Stage Employees (IATSE) Local 52 said, "The men and women of the IATSE look forward to participating in this groundbreaking endeavor. Thanks to the vision of Governor Cuomo and the Legislature, the long term funding of the production incentives gives employers the comfort they need to invest in these new avenues of entertainment, which will provide thousands of new jobs with good wages and benefits."

    Thomas J. O'Donnell, President Teamsters Local 817 said, "Theatrical Teamsters Local 817 is thrilled that Marvel's newest television series will be filmed in New York. This long-term commitment is an incredible accomplishment that will bring not just jobs, but also stability to our members work and family lives."

    I had to re-read the first issue three times to fully appreciate it. The series is now on my pull list.

    The Daredevil Netflix series has their Stick.

    Scott Glenn, who you might remember from SUCKER PUNCH) has been cast as Stick, Matt Murdock's mentor in the martial arts, in the upcoming "Daredevil" television collaboration between Marvel and Netflix.

    Alain Moussi?

    Tuesday, January 27, 2015
    [UPDATED] Is Alain Moussi Joining Marvel/Netflix As IRON FIST?
    UPDATE (1/28/15): It seems Moussi removed his Facebook post within the last several hours since the original article was published, and reposted a few more times later stating he was not in the running to play the character. We'll keep you posted.

    In the wake of the current production of Kickboxer, you may have been wondering exactly what lies next for its debut lead actor, Alain Moussi. Well, we may already have an answer for that with the latest update now drawing some pretty tasty speculation relative to what is now happening for Marvel's currently brewing extension of their cinematic universe through Netflix, and if you're a kung fu fan, you definitely have reason to be excited.



    Iron Fist first appeared in the comics back in 1974 from creative duo Roy Thomas and Gil Kane with the story of Danny Rand, a young boy who acquires his extraordinary kung fu skills during his intensive training in the mystical city of K'un L'un and uses them to fight crime upon discovering his true destiny in a long-line of martial artists with his skills. The character was also once a contender for a potential feature film back in 2000 with Marvel and Artisan Entertainment courting Star Wars: Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace and Ballistic: Ecks VS Sever co-star Ray Park to lead with Kirk Wong directing. The project eventually withered away in the following decade before Marvel hired Rich Wilkes to provide a script for a feature film once more, which, of course, was long before Marvel hit the reset button with Netflix back in 2014.

    While neither group have officially confirmed the plot for the new Iron Fist series, all roads currently point to a potential storyline involving the Heroes For Hire arc with actor Mike Colter currently tapped to portray superhero Luke Cage for Netflix with expected appearances in Netflix's A.K.A. Jessica Jones for a 2016 premiere date. In the meantime, if there is anything worth taking away from Moussi's post above, it's the promise of watching the career of a rising martial arts action star now in full-bloom for a new generation of kung fu and comic book fans. Alas, official news is pending beyond this write-up, so stay tuned for more Iron Fist news ahead of further developments on Kickboxer!

    I don't really know Moussi, although I've seen a lot of stuff he's been in. It's all stunt work, which tends not to be as prominent. Anyone know any standout roles he's had.

    'no cast as yet for the show expected in 2016'

    Marvel and Netflix’s Defenders Series Release Dates and News: Daredevil Season 2, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist
    By Mark Rollins (news@gospelherald.com) Oct 20, 2015 02:19 PM EDT


    These Netflix/Marvel characters will all be getting together on "The Defenders", but what will they do?

    It was no secret that Marvel wanted to put not one, but four separate series on Netflix based on its comic book characters. The first season of Daredevil turned out to be a huge hit, so now audiences have a lot to look forward to with the release dates of new series like Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, not to mention Daredevil Season 2. This is what is known about the Defenders Series, but what will be the story that brings all these iconic characters together?

    As far as the next page of the Defenders story, Jessica Jones is going to be the show that Netflix viewers get a chance to see. The entire Season 1 of Jessica Jones is just one month away from being released to subscribers as it will debut on November 20, 2015. That will be on a Friday, and you had better believe that it will be binge-watched by Marvel fans by the following Monday.

    So far, what we know about Jessica Jones based on a plot synopsis post on The Metro: "Ever since her short-lived stint as a Super Hero ended in tragedy, Jessica Jones has been rebuilding her personal life and career as a hot-tempered, sardonic, badass private detective in Hell's Kitchen, New York City. Plagued by self-loathing, and a wicked case of PTSD, Jessica battles demons from within and without, using her extraordinary abilities as an unlikely champion for those in need... especially if they're willing to cut her a check."

    The show looks to be even darker than Daredevil Season 1, and it looks like it will focus on a superhero who has ended their super-career rather than the usual origin story that starts at the beginning. Krysten Ritter will be playing the title character, and the pilot episode, which has already been previewed, will have David Tennant appear as the villain, The Purple Man.

    The Inquisitr recently discussed the preview at New York Comic Con, and how the series is definitely not for kids. The Sexuality is very open and blunt, and it is possible that the character that Carrie-Anne Moss plays, Jeryn Hogarth, could be Marvel's first foray into ****sexual themes.

    Considering that Jessica Jones is working within Hell's Kitchen, is there any possibility of her crossing over into the Daredevil's Season 2, coming around April 2016? Right now, we know that Matt Murdock (Daredevil's real name, played by Charlie Cox) is going to have his hands full dealing with the Punisher (Jon Bernthal) and Elektra (Elodie Yung), two fan-favorite characters plucked from the comic book source material. It's pretty clear that there would have to be some tie-in to Jessica Jones, as Marvel just can't seem to resist that crossover storytelling with its Avengers films.

    Jessica Jones will have one character that will link to the Luke Cage as Mike Colter, the actor that plays the character on Jessica Jones, will have his own planned spinoff show, sometime in 2016. This character could get a lot of development on Jessica Jones, and then face his own foes. Very little is known other than the imdb description of "Given superstrength and durability by a sabotaged experiment, a wrongly accused man escapes prison to become a superhero for hire". It does have a cast that includes Misty Knight and other characters pulled from the comic book source material.

    As for Iron Fist, the last of the Defenders shows (assuming Marvel doesn't spinoff other characters), the imdb description is just "a martial artist with chi based super powers fights crime", and there is no cast as yet for the show expected in 2016.

    So perhaps the biggest question is how this team will become the Defenders, and what foe or foes will they face? If they are following the Avengers money-making movie formula, then different aspects of the story will be revealed in the individual series, and then will culminate into one big battle when the Defenders series finally happens.
    Alas, Iron Fist has become the red-headed stepchild of Marvel/Netflix.

    Yeah, I have to admit that I kind of saw that coming.
    Iron Fist CAN be a very good character IF you take into account what he CAN do ( super speed, super strength, super healing and even project his chi almost like lightning or use it as a projectile in a gun or a bow instead of bullets/arrows) - Think Jedi almost.
    His torment is what makes him unique BUT it gets lost as a "supporting role".
    It would be a more mystical type of thing.

    Rumor has it . . .

    Iron Fist may end up replaced by Moon Knight.
    The news comes from Heroic Hollywood’s Umberto “El Mayimbe” Gonzales, who was a guest on the Collider Heroes video cast. Around the 10 minute mark in the video below, Gonzales and the hosts are discussing what Marvel’s recently announced 2020 mystery movies may be. Moon Knight is mentioned as a possibility, but Gonzales says he’s heard they’re preparing the character for the “back door pilot” treatment on Netflix, similar to the Punisher in the second season of Daredevil.
    Or better Yet Shang-Chi!

    It’s true that Iron Fist isn’t TECHNICALLY cancelled, but Netflix has plans to retool it as Shang-Chi if they can’t find a show runner to take up the part by the end of 2015, with it being another martial arts show like Marco Polo or Mortal Kombat Legacy since he lends to gritiness much easier than Iron Fist. Currently Iron Fists problem is that nobody’s got a solid series pitch beyond ‘magic guy who fights crime’. — Iron Fist might be canned/replaced since Netflix wants a 2016 release date but nobody can come up with an interesting/cost-effective pitch for the show and time is thiiiin to write, cast, film, and post-production in time since the Netflix shows take around a whole year from writing to distribution. That’s not a Feige/Perlmutter thing and more a ‘nobody really knows how to ****ing do it’ type thing, but Netflix signed a contract for 4 shows + Defenders so they have to have a show. Worse comes to worse it’d be rebranded as Shang-Chi and given a Raid-type treatment since that’d keep costs way down and could be finished before the end of 2016 since there would be no dragons or magic.
    Or Punisher!
    You were right about the problems with Netflix/Marvel TV’s Iron Fist. The fact that MCU has worked hard to have a good relationship with China. Marvel TV’s idea for Iron Fist would of hurt MCU China relations. The synopsis for Iron Fist was basically like Eddie Murphy’s Golden Child. Kung Fu is also one of China’s national sports. To tell the Chinese people that a young American is the best at Kung-fu, would be a slap in their faces. It’s very clear that Mr. Feige will not approve Iron Fist in its current state. Iron Fist will most likely be put on hold and be replaced by a Punisher series.

    I would prefer a Shang-chi to an Ironfist, simply because the Shang-Chi storyline writes itself almost.

    Meanwhile, there's Jessica Jones



    I'm not a comic nerd so I don't really know her tale (I'm sure DS can fill me in at some point). It amuses me that they poached the cross-legged hoodie pose from The-Girl-with-the-Dragon-Tattoo
