Dude's prettier than Jessica Jones tho
>>
>>77608633
I'm only 3 episodes in but no I don't think so so far. Luke Cage has never been interesting to me. Where the hell is Danny?
>>
>>77609058
I think he's still in casting/production limbo
>>
>>77609083
This is what I've heard as well.
>>
>>77609153
>>77609083
I heard they canned his series for Punisher?
>>
>>77609058
Last I heard there was a rumor going around that they're considering just reducing Iron Fist down to a made-for-Netflix film and giving Punisher the fourth pre-Defender show.
>>
>>77609160

They reconfirmed like yesterday it's happening
>>
>>77609058
they still have no idea if they just want to make him a 'grounded' bruce lee guy, a North Star-esque pressure point guy, or full blown 'I can make fire and lightning with my ki' guy. The latter is what the fans of the character want, but SFX would eat up too much budget to hire an established actor for the lead. The former would be cheapest and jive with the tone of the other netflix shows more, but would disapoint the most people and make him too much like daredevil. The middle would be an 'okay-ish' compromise but probably suffer from trying to please everyone but pleasing no one.

>>77609198

I dunno, I'd rather have a Danny that fights over magic bullshit
>>
>>77609058
>Where the hell is Danny
That's a character that's been pretty shitty too
>>
>>77609198
Personally I'm hoping for a mix between the last two
>>
>>77608633
>The dude's prettier than Jessica Jones, though.

That's not much of an accomplishment.
>>
>>77609226
But at least he has magic kung-fu which is always kickass.
>>
>>77608633
i was worried about his muscles
which is why i wanted terry crews, that and his charismatic personality. but this worked really well
>>
Who would be the bad guy anyway for the Luke Cage show?
>>
>>77608633
After the revelation about his wife and Jessica, I'm not certain.
>>
I couldn't stop focusing on the wart on the back of his head
>>
>>77608633
Yep, he's rather spot on as Luke - laid back, stoic, and he will take no guff.
My preconceptions were done away with the moment he spoke - he's solid.

>where is Danny

beyond what >>77609198 said there's also the issue of Danny being a cultural anachronism that doesn't update.

The 70's are over, the US doesn't give a shit about kung-fu anymore in a world where MMA exists. An unironic Danny adaptation would be rejected by the public.

And you can get mad at me all you want for saying that, I'm not calling it a good thing. But there's a reason Jackie Chan and Jet Li were drummed out of major Hollywood productions a good ten years ago. No one in the mainstream gives a shit about Asian martial arts stuff anymore outside of purely magic shit like Avatar, which is made for kids.

The world wants MMA. That's not who Danny is. That's a big fucking issue.

>>77609545
The Raid's popular and people love Daredevil's fights
>>
I thought he was pretty based to be honest
It would have to stay noir though, on the same path DD and JJ are.
>>
>>77609198

I think it's hilarious that we have:

>splashed in the face with radioactive chemicals
>forced to bathe in chemicals
>exposed to radiation
>PUNCHED A DRAGON IN THE FUCKING HEART
>>
>>77609160
>>77609183
Sources please??
>>
>>77609314

The actor said Jessica was like halfway through his story... So probably just mostly thugs from his previous life. Didn't the guy who actually committed the murder he was sent to prison for get powers?
>>
>>77609575

The Raid is NOTHING like traditional martial arts movies. The whole reason people were cumming all over it was how fucking insane it was compared to most normal kung-fu movies.
>>
>>77609198
The second seems to be the most likely, after seeing what Madame Gao can do.

Joe Quesada.

I've heard some people say The Raid 2 is better and to skip the first one. How true is this?
>>
>>77610003

>implying I'm happy about this

>implying I want this

I'm just saying, anon. Martial arts characters like Danny aren't an easy sell now.

>>77610022

If you want a 90-minute demo-reel of martial arts action scenes with no plot or characters, watch The Raid.

If you want a movie with insane action scenes with an actual story watch Raid 2.

And you don't need to watch the first one. The loose threads from the first Raid are tied-up in the first 2 minutes of the sequel and everyone moves on.
>>
>>77608633
that guy has big tits
>>
>>77609930
Tyvm :>
>>
>>77610022
The Raid 2 actually has a story and has a lot more variety in it's fights but a lot of the story felt bloated and the acting (on the dub I watched at least) was trash
>>
>>77610060
No vision my friend, no vision at all
No cretaivity either, you should work on that

Will never get good quality products when things get shut down because "you think" its what people want
>>
>>77609545
>>77610060

I don't know where you've been the last decade or so, but people outrage far more when they don't stick to the character than when they don't. Argue that it won't sell all you want, but nobody really knows how receptive something is going to be. Focus groups are retarded, and the media revolving comic books is just about the same.

Sure, you're not happy with it, but it doesn't mean your opinion is right, either. What exactly is it you're trying to do with your argument anyways? Argue that Danny needs a change? That always works well. That's sarcasm, by the way.

why do people want danny so bad
matt already covers the white kung fu guy territory
from what i understand danny is just kungfu hawkguy snarky and generically 'fun' guy but also rich selling things for reasons. boring
if he was asian tho....
>>
There was that flic about a woman who was held as a sex slave by yakuza and then she gets into this insane, escalating standoff with all the killers they can muster and it's all shot in this one room.
That one was pretty great.
>>
>>77610022

Just watch them back to back. It's an amazing ride from start to finish.
>>
>>77610218
Nah. Danny brings in a mystic side of kung fu, more than Daredevil does. They pretty much set that up with Madame Gao in Daredevil, with China not being her homeland and her being all mysterious. And uh, magical.

Iron Fist is way more full-blown mysticism and wuxia than Daredevil is. He learned martial arts in a magical hidden city, and the power of the Iron Fist comes from punching the heart of a dragon.

His background is pretty much lol cultural appropriation though so I think if they do him now they sort of have to make him Chinese-American. They could also do Shang-Chi except he's even less known than IF is.
>>
Is it wrong that an Iron Fist miniseries potentially means FAT COBRA in a supporting role, and that's why I'm excited for it?
>>
>>77609524
That's coming.
>>
>>77610321
If they want to make him Asian, they need to do Shang-Chi instead. Danny is inherently a white man. It's part of his story, changing that changes his whole thing in K'un-Lun
>>
>>77609168
aww they better not
i want my Iron Fist show, focus on expanding character that everyone doesn't already know
>>
>>77610365
if they tie an origin and Immortal id cum
>>
>>77610321
>His background is pretty much lol cultural appropriation though so I think if they do him now they sort of have to make him Chinese-American

It's always hilarious how in fear of "cultural appropriation" they might end up with enforcing racial stereotypes like "he knows kung fu so he must be asian!"
>>
>>77608633
I think they should have gotten a bigger actor, like he should be able to stand beside evans and helsmworth and not look small
>>
No, he had no charisma.

Also with both DD and JJ I felt the show was too long, I can only imagine how boring 13 episodes of Luke Cage will be.
>>
>>77610502
He'd be viewed as an outsider either way
I'd say make him a moxed asian white guy to cover your bases
>>
>>77610610
>>77609168
Quesada debunked that rumor already.
>>
>>77611149
the dudes bigger than both and he's the same height as hemsworth
>>
>>77611122
No, it's more the cliche of "ethnic person finds fulfillment and self-actualization in rigidly adhering to their background culture."

>>77611182
If you're going to make him Asian or biracial at least make him not Chinese. Probably not Korean or Japanese either.
>>
>>77611182
Danny was never viewed as an outsider. There were two other white men who competed to become Iron Fist already.
>>
What is recommended reading for iron fist?

Brubaker's Immortal Iron Fist series.

Everything else besides the Heroes for Hire series is garbage.
>>
>>77611375
All of his early shit and almost anything else you can get your hands on
there really isn't all that much of it
>>
>>77609198
>>77609545
>>77609803

There is also the problem of whether or not they show Kun Lun at all.

Starting with Danny fresh off the boat in NYC without any flashbacks would be kind of shitty.
>>
>>77611390
Which heroes for hire? And how are Bendis' New Avengers volumes. Iron Fist seems to be in those too.

Concealer, and foundation my man.

All of them featuring Danny and Luke are pretty good. Once more people start joining it's time to drop it.

> Bendis' New Avengers volumes

He breaks up with Misty Knight and starts fucking Spider-Woman. Let's just leave it at that.

Up until what issue? #14, #16 or all the way to the end with Duane Swierczynski?

Well in JJ he played an inoffensive romantic lead so im hoping his own series lets him stretch a bit more. Also they need to not be afraid to make him more rough/urban/ghetto/any other potentially offensive term

Damn RPM red was better off in the time line where the world ended.

You mean Fraction's. Brubaker's name was only put on the book to help it sell.
