Mike Colter aka Luke Cage, recently reported to Collider - at the TCA conference, about news on Iron Fist. Here's what he had to say...
“The actor has been cast, but he’s in a basement somewhere. When the time is right, they’ll let him up and tell him where he is. I am [excited]. I’ll get a nice little break, after doing Jessica Jones and Luke Cage. Whether I’m in [his show], I don’t know, but there’s The Defenders.”
The anticipation of Daniel Rand appearing on the The Defenders, is exceptional, and with Daredevil approaching - how can anyone not be excited for Netflix's Marvel Universe. It's been reported that he's been missing for several years, and his return to New York is newsworthy!
Heroes For Hire - We're Not Cheap!
Whoever Netflix/Marvel chooses, that actor must carry a heavy-burden - he must follow Charlie Cox, Krysten Ritter, and Mike Colter (I still would like to be Danny Rand!). Another issue, what race will Iron Fist be? In the comics he looks like a surfer dude from Point Break, and to be honest - I just want to see another Netflix's side of the Marvel Universe!
Danny Rand, returns from K'un-L'un, and can basically one-punch anything ( that sounds awesome!). Will this be too much to handle for Netflix's more grounded approach? Maybe, but I have faith in Netflix/Marvel's partnership! My choice for Iron Fist, Daniel Wu from Into the Badlands!
Please hurry Netflix - Daredevil season two premieres on March 18th, exclusively on Netflix!
