UPDATE: Looks like Moussi may have jumped the gun as he removed the tweet below pretty quickly last night.
Does this mean that he spoke to soon or he’s been cast and Marvel told him to take the tweet down? We’ll have to wait and see…
In the wake of the current production of the Kickboxer remake, Kickboxer: Vengeance, you may have been wondering exactly what lies next for its debut lead actor, Alain Moussi. Well, he may have given us an answer via his latest tweet.
It seems that Moussi may be in the running to play Danny Rand, aka Iron Fist in the Iron Fist Netflix limited series. Trust me, if you’re a kung fu fan, you definitely have reason to be excited.
While neither group has officially confirmed the plot or Moussi’s involvement in the new Iron Fist series, all roads currently point to a potential storyline involving the Heroes For Hire story arc with actor Mike Colter who is currently tapped to play superhero Luke Cage in Netflix’s upcoming A.K.A. Jessica Jones to air sometime in 2015 or 2016.
In the meantime, if there is anything worth taking away from Moussi’s post above, it’s the promise of watching the blooming career of a rising martial arts action star for a new generation of kung fu and comic book fans.
What do you think as Moussi as Iron Fist?
