    Oh. Okay. That's nice.




    Hey Marvel, can you get to work on cooler superhero movies first? Black Panther please, thanks. Or hey, you guys were recently bought out by Disney. Surely you have enough money to buy some more character rights back, right? I mean, maybe even just Deadpool would do. Iron Fist is cool. But priorities Marvel, priorities.

    I don't know much about Iron Fist, so this should be interesting.

    They need to do a Luke Cage movie then have them team up in a 3rd movie.

    I knew they were trying to make a Luke Cage movie for a while now.

    As for Danny, here's all you need to know about him.

    If they go with all-out, crazy martial arts action this could actually be a fun movie.

    He's a ninja who is the heir of a big company. He doesn't wear any armor, but does wear ballet shoes.

    And he's like very very buddy buddy *wink wink* with Luke Cage and his wife.

    He's not a ninja.

    Iron Fist is a third tier Marvel character. Nobody will care when it comes out.

    ...I never said he wasn't. But I always thought Black Panther was cooler then Iron Fist, and I'd rather see a movie with him first.
    And no. Black Panther is at the very least a b-list character.

    So because Blade was moderately successful, that translates to success with Iron Fist?

    No, but assuming that a movie isn't going to do any business because the character isn't big with the relatively tiny number of people that read superhero comics isn't a particularly solid assumption either.

    I noticed they didn't say if it would be a full length feature film or a rumored "short film" that will run before a bigger named film and serve as a kind of "origin story" for lesser characters so they can appear in bigger films with out the need for a lengthy explanation as to who they are. If they can do little short films for Iron Fist and Luke Cage, then it means they could both easily end up getting their own "Heros for Hire" film, or even get added to any possible Avengers sequels.

    Marvel taking over production of it's comic based movies, and then making them all happen within the same universe, was probably one of the best ideas they've had in a long time. The sheer potential amount of awesome that can come from this, where every year Marvel just pumps out one big name blockbuster after another, is just pure genius. The fans get to see true-to-character live action versions of their favorite heros, Marvel gets themselves a fat wad of cash and everyone lives happily ever after.

    P.S. Still need the Deadpool movie though, mainly because I wanna see Ryan Reynolds be a crazy merc with lots of guns and a twisted sense of humor.

    I think it's a safe assumption 99% of the world population has no idea who Iron Fist is. Punisher movies have bombed every time they're tried. There's just certain characters that don't make for good movies.

    I won't dispute any of those points, but I don't see how people not knowing a property beforehand immediately disqualifies it from being sucessful. Thats no different to the general public then a film thats entirely original and not based on something from other media.
