Marvel Hires Screenwriter For Iron Fist Movie


Jay Cochran - August 25, 2010
Deadline is reporting that Marvel Studios has hired screenwriter Rich Wilkes to draft a script for an upcoming Iron Fist movie. Wilkes is best known for his writing duties for the first XXX movie which starred Vin Diesel.

Iron Fist has been one of those Marvel characters long-rumored to be getting the big screen treatment and at one time it was thought actor Ray Parks would be offered the lead-role of Danny Rand for the movie. No word if Parks is still being considered for the part or not.

The character of Iron Fist was created by by Roy Thomas and Gil Kane and is about a character name Daniel Rand who was born in New York City the sone of a rich American Businessman who gains his mystical martial arts skills from a long-lost city called K'un-Lun. Plunging his fists into the molten heart of the dragon Shou-Lao the Undying infused the dragon's superhuman energy into Rand; this along with training by Lei Kung the Thunderer gave Rand the power of the Iron Fist, allowing him to summon and focus his chi (or natural energy) and enhance his natural abilities to extraordinary levels. His strength, speed, stamina, durability, agility, and reflexes and senses can all be astronomically intensified, making his already formidable martial arts skills even more so. Iron Fist first appeared in Marvel Premiere #15 back in 1974.
