Let me get this out of the way: I would have loved to see Ray Park discuss this in person at the Wizard World Chicago convention this past weekend.
The highly skilled martial artist and actor, who recently played the role of Snake Eyes in "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra," is also a serious comic book fan; at least when it comes to Matt Fraction's " Iron Fist." Over the weekend, Comics Alliance released that Park cited his dream of playing Danny Rand in a live-action film role lives on, and that he would even "work on [his] American accent to do it."
"I actually want to be Danny Rand -- I want to be Iron Fist, I want to do it,..."I want to have an excuse to take my top off and show off my abs," he joked. "Or, take my top off and work to get my abs back that I used to have when I was 19."
Ray, I definitely won't mind it if you took your shirt off for this movie. Park was attached to the role of Iron Fist back in 2001 when the rights to the character were held by Artisan Entertainment. Nothing was done with it, however, and more recently, the rights to the character were returned to Marvel.
If one day they do decide to make an "Iron Fist" movie, it would most likely center around a partnership between " Iron Fist" and " Luke Cage" in a " Heroes For Hire" film.
I will admit that I have an affinity for Ray Park and his martial arts skills; I would personally love to see an "Iron Fist" movie. What about you?
