    One thing that needs to happen is that they use the theme song from Black Belt Jones for the fight scenes. Can't you imagine Luke and Danny kicking ass to this?

    I actually like the idea of having the two films separate then crossing over. I really hope thats what actually happens

    Id much rather see Iron Fist have his own movie based on Immortal Iron Fist with all the mythos. I can't really see Iron Fist battling Chosen Ones to save the universe and then returning to help Cage fight street-level rogues

    What happened to Lionsgate? They got the license to Iron Fist in 2004. Did they just give up on Marvel movies after The Punisher bombed?

    Iron Fist in his own movie is the way to go. There is so much that can be done from his series Immortal Iron Fist.

    Know where I can find a script review? There was one on LatinoReview I think, but now it seems to be gone.

    Its not saying that they wont have their own solo films as well

    and as far as Iron Fist fighting Stree Level rogues: Is that what they did in the comics? When Luke Cage and Iron Fist teamed up who did they usually fight. I dont know that much about their team ups

    Iron Fist fought street level rogues before Immortal Iron Fist where he fought demons and interdimensional beings. If they make an Iron Fist movie than it should be based on IIF because that is where the best material is. If they follow up an interdimensional marital arts tournament featuring other Chosen Ones with Iron Fist fighting street thugs in what is essentially a buddy cop movie that would be incredibly anti-climatic.

    This would be like Rambo taking on an entire village of abusive Burmese miliatry men practically single handedly than helping Axel Foley take down some rich banker who is insider-trading in the sequel.

    Charlie Hunnam is the ideal choice for Iron Fist.

    Really? The reviews I read of it made it sound kinda hokey, more comedic than serious. I don't trust his track record either: The Big Hit, Love and a Bullet and Dragonball.

    I did like the description of Cage's outfit, yellow and blue jumpsuit matching Timberlands and a heavy steel gauge chain on his neck.

    Since they ended up not using him for Green Hornet, they should get Stephen Chow to work on IRON FIST. Kung-Fu Hustle is an absolute classic!

    Really like the idea of putting both of them in a movie together. Honestly wouldn't really need the solo movies first. Just jump right into the team-up flick. Sounds like it could be really cool!

    Did this Ben Ramsey script actually have Iron Fist or was it just a Cage solo?

    It was just Cage. Straight-up origin.

    Y'know, I was thinking about Charlie Hunnam just now, and about how he's a brit but does a spot-on American accent. Then I thought, if Danny Rand was raised in Kun'Lun since he was a kid, wouldn't he have some kind of non-American accent? I know movies don't usually bother with details like this, but it might be an interesting way to make Danny seem like more of an outsider when he comes back to this realm in the team-up movie.

    Where can I read the Ben Ramsey script? I've heard about it for years, but now I'm interested to read it.
