Hi, fans. I'm back with a really important post. In the past articles of this series, I have fan-cast characters who have either been rumored to appear in live action, or I have fancast characters who I would like to see in live action. This is a whole new monster. For the first time, I'm fan casting a confirmed character who is yet to be officially cast.

Iron Fist is a street level Marvel superhero who is set to appear in his own 13 episode series on Netflix.

Danny Rand is one of the coolest characters in the Marvel Universe, and we are all lucky to get to see him live-action.

He is the last main hero left to be cast for the Marvel Netflix wing, and I'm here to grace you all with my input.

So, without further adieu:

1.) Charlie Hunnam

The reason I picked Hunnam is that he is one of the world's most talented actors who isn't shy to doing action roles. Nor is he shy to TV roles. And now that Sons of Anarchy is over, Hunnam should have a more open schedule for something like this. With the perfect looks and a great amount of acting chops, Hunnam has what it takes to play this role.

2.) Ryan Kwanten

Most well known as Jason Stackhouse from True Blood, Kwanten could easily be called talented. He's kind've underrated and unknown, which is a really good thing when casting a comic book character, especially one like Iron Fist. With the looks and chops, and his history as a TV star, Ryan Kwanten is putting off the perfect vibes.

3.) Dave Franco

Yeah, I know. Cliché. But, you should be used to that by now. It's hard to pick five genuine actors for a young character like this without a hint of a cliché here and there. And, to be honest, Dave Franco would do really well in this role. He is a young, funny guy with a lot of potential to bring to this role. This would be a great match.

4.) Ryan Gosling

If dreams came true, this would be happening. Ryan Gosling probably wouldn't go for this role, however. Fortunately, that's not what this article is about. Ryan Gosling could easily take this role, and do amazing things with it. This would be the kind of portrayal that would leave fans associating character with actor (and vice versa) for the rest of their lives, similarly to RDJ with Iron Man.

5.) Anton Yelchin

With awesome performances under his belt such as those in Star Trek (2009), Charlie Bartlett (2007), Odd Thomas (2013), and Star Trek: Into Darkness (2013), Yelchin has a good record. The best part is that he is still young. With a versatile actor such as Anton Yelchin, Iron Fist could be an amazing series.

Thanks for reading, folks!
