Re: Luke Cage & Iron Fist - HEROES FOR HIRE movie thread
Hunnam would be great for Iron Fist as far as the acting and look is concerned, but would he be able to pull off the action scenes? We all know he can pull off a fight, but he's always been more of a brawler in his roles, as opposed to a martial arts type guy. Now, as far as Cage is concerned, I have the exact opposite problem. Terry Crewes looks the part more than anyone else I have seen, but he's not the best actor in the world. If they decided to write the part as a "big angry black man" like he sometimes is in the books, and have Iron Fist be the big "acting" part, I could see him working out. They'd have to keep him as the muscle of the group with Misty and Rand as the brains.
That being said, I see this as more of a TV show than a movie franchise. For one, there's going to be a ton of superhero movies coming out in the next few years, and the general public would probably not bother going to see one about H4H.
But the only superhero tv show out there is Smallville, which will probably not last much longer. H4H would be a great one to make, because most regular folks really don't know the characters, so there wouldn't be any preconcieved notions as to what the show should be. It's also a team, as opposed to just one hero, so there are a ton of directions you could take it as far as new storylines and bad guys.
