    lol...I heard about that too Doug.
    Ice cube could be ok though as Baracus. He's one of the better actors out of the Hip Hop world.

    I think Luke Cage should be played by the father in the ''everybody hates chris'' show and he was also in ''balls of fury''.

    After a google his IMDB.

    Terry Crews

    Progress on Iron Fist
    Marvel Forges 'Iron Fist' Deal With 'xXx' Creator Rich Wilkes
    By MIKE FLEMING | Wednesday August 25, 2010 @ 2:31pm EDT

    EXCLUSIVE: Marvel Studios is moving forward on a live action feature version of Iron Fist, hiring screenwriter Rich Wilkes to draft a movie based on a martial arts expert whose battle with a dragon--ended when he plunged his hands through the beast's molten heart--turned his fists into indestructible weapons.

    Iron Fist was on the minds of many fanboys when Disney paid $4 billion for Marvel's 5000 superhero library and vowed to turn the less obvious comic book heroes into films and TV properties. Marvel tried to make an Iron Fist movie with Artisan nearly a decade ago, as a vehicle for X-Men villain and martial arts expert Ray Park. The Iron Fist comic book mythology was created by Roy Thomas and Gil Kane in the 1970s, when the popularity of martial arts films was on the rise.

    Iron Fist was among a bunch of Marvel superhero properties scattered around Hollywood. While tent poles like X-Men, Spider-Man, Ghost Rider, Fantastic Four and a handful of others remain at other studios, Marvel has recaptured rights to many wayward properties and Kevin Feige is hitting the reset button on a bunch of them. Marvel recently began work on Dr. Strange, hiring Conan scribes Thomas Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer to generate a film from a superhero property that four studios tried to crack over the years. Both Iron Fist and Dr. Strange will be distributed by Disney. Marvel Studios has four more films under the preexisting distribution deal with Paramount, and those will include Thor, The First Avenger: Captain America, and the Robert Downey Jr.-starrer Iron Man 3. The final film will likely be the Joss Whedon-directed The Avengers, though Marvel is separately working on the youth-oriented Runaways and Ant-Man.

    Wilkes is best known for writing the original XXX film that launched a franchise around Vin Diesel's extreme sports hero character. He also scripted the Motley Crue biopic The Dirt, which Paramount just put into turnaround, and he wrote Ballad of the Whiskey Robber for Johnny Depp and Graham King. Wilkes is repped by Verve.

    Hope that it is modernized for the times, which means no cheesy green get up.

    That's not quite how it happend. He gave that dragon the ultimate Bro-Hug, snuffing out the Dragon's er.. dragon shaped heart. The result left the young Danny Rand with that same dragon image branded to his chest, in black.

    The training that allowed him to beat that dragon also allows him to focus all of that Dragon Qi he absorbed into his fists in classic hard qigong fashion. In theory he could focus that qi into his kick.... but Iron Toe does not make the best super hero name.

    You need to re-read what happened Bro, after he defeated the immortal Dragon ( chi shou or whatever the name was) Rand plunged his hands into the heart of the dragon that was NOT in the dragon but in a special "urn".
    See the dragon's heart is OUtSIDE the body so when Danny blocks the chi of the dragon, basically blocking the "link" between the dragon and it's disembodied heart.

    Dude, Danny Rand hasn't been wearing the 70s outfit for quite some time. Check out Immortal Iron Fist!


    That's Danny with the other Immortal Weapons from the other Heavenly Cities.

    Let's not forget Danny's predecessor, Orson Randal:


    And the sword hottie Iron Fist:


    The green and gold are Kun Lun's colors.

    Zenshiite, yes, that was my point, I hope they go AT LEAST with that "storyline".
    Though I would prefer NO get up at all.

    Without the get up it wouldn't be Iron Fist. It'd just be some white guy doing kung fu.

    Sure, it's corny... but if Iron Fist is put into a world where there are superheroes and he adopts elements of his predecessor's outfit(a pretty cool Pulp noir deal) and the traditional colors of Kun Lun, Danny's going to look like a superhero when he's exiled in the mortal realm. He's got freaking super chi powers, after all. They could throw in an Avengers reference(and with this being developed by Marvel and their increasingly tied together movie universe they likely will) that's the perfect set up for why Danny dresses the way he does as Iron Fist.

    My guess is the first movie will take elements of "The Last Iron First Story" and the origin story with Davos thrown in. Then somehow the 7 Immortal Cities will be told if the first flick does well enough. Maybe we can get a trilogy and get the Eighth Immortal City storyline out of it to boot. I could see an Immortal Weapons direct to DVD animated feature coming out of the deal to. Orson Randall animated stuff too as extras if he were to play a role. Heck, I'd like them to just start with Danny in NYC being pursued by Hydra just like "The Last Iron Fist Story" and give us the origin as flashbacks and all that.

    Seeing as they are developing Luke Cage too, somehow they'll meet and end up in a team up movie... hopefully with the rest of the Heroes For Hire.

    Iron Fist/Luke Cage could prove to be a pretty lucrative franchise and NOT do some of the more typical superhero things. Iron Fist and Luke Cage don't really have the kinds of villians that other superheroes do. What they've got is Hydra and stuff like that.

    The whole Immortal Cities thing would play out kind of like Mortal Kombat, but without being hindered by a video game franchise.

    Marvel Bringing Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, And Iron Fist To Netflix


    Disney-Marvel and Netflix NFLX +2.16% today announced a joint venture to develop four new superhero series for Netflix’s streaming and DVD service. The characters included in the deal are Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. The Marvel-Netflix deal guarantees 13 episodes of each series, and a final team-up miniseries The Defenders featuring all four of the characters together. Daredevil will kick things off as the first series to release.

    Will these shows tie into Marvel’s current television series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the cinematic Marvel universe? No word on that yet, but I’d be surprised if it didn’t tie into the movies — tying together series on different networks/distributors is a bit trickier, so they might just remain mum on that front.

    The deal is part of a broader arrangement between Disney-Marvel and Netflix, granting Netflix exclusive first-run subscription rights to Disney and Marvel live-action and animation from Disney and Marvel. With the global popularity of the Marvel films, and with Netflix expanding into more countries while likewise expanding its library of content — including with exclusivity deals like the one it signed with Disney and Marvel — as well as a growing lineup of original programming, the financial implications of the deal are eye-popping.
    Why Marvel Is Defining The Modern Superhero Film Genre Mark Hughes Mark Hughes Contributor

    Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has enjoyed strong overall viewership, hitting a five-week high this Tuesday and ranking #1 for the evening among males 18-49 years of age, and ranking second-most-watched scripted show overall Tuesday. Data for streaming and recorded viewership shows the program’s total audience is even higher than pure TV ratings demonstrate.

    We could see budgeting for these Marvel superhero series in the $5-10 million or more range per episode, depending on the level of effects involved in each show. Netflix has been willing to spend money to make money, simply put, including investing in top talents and high production values for their original programming. Of course, Netflix won’t be financing the shows alone, so how much could Disney-Marvel kick in? Disney and Marvel have tried hard — and succeeded — to tamp down on budgeting and keep costs a little lower whenever possible, and this project no doubt will see the same sort of frugality from the studios.

    The new shows will begin airing in 2015, and the deal will spread the release of all four series over several years, similar to the approach with the Marvel films leading into the big team-up movie The Avengers in 2012.

    What do you think of this deal, dear readers? Are you happy to see Marvel jumping into streaming programming with their characters? And would you like to see these shows eventually lead into some big-screen Defenders productions?

    So does this ignore the entire Immortal Iron Fist series, as well as the Defenders where the current Iron Fist

    Immortal Weapons

    There was an Immortal Weapons series which followed the events you mentioned. There where also some re-cons regarding the baby and the now ex-girl-friend, in a handful of marvel series, most notably New Avengers and Heroes for Hire. That Defenders series crashed and burned (no book with that title lasts long) but if you liked IMMORTAL IRON FIST might want to check out HAWKEYE.
