Damon Lindelof Wants to Do an Iron Fist Movie

Prometheus co-writer and Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof is a very ambitious guy. After his already lengthy resume, he shows no signs of settling down for smaller projects.

In an interview with CBM, he was asked what characters he would want to adapt.

“I think I would rather do a character that not many people knew, and maybe saw as lame and couldn’t carry their own movie. One character I’ve always loved is Iron Fist, and Matt Fraction’s incredible run with him a couple of years back. I always thought that would make a really cool movie.”

When the fact that an Iron Fist film had been brought up at the studio level before, Lindelof added: “Yeah well I mean I think it’s because he’s even more fringy than Iron Man was, and also because he’s called IRON Fist they may be worried about some confusion with the Iron Man franchise, even though obviously they are very different characters. But I have to imagine that with the success of The Avengers, they are planning to give Black Widow and Hawkeye their own spin-offs, and there are many more characters on the fringe of the Marvel universe that I feel are equally worthy, like Iron Fist.”

What do you guys think? Lindelof on an Iron Fist movie sound as appealing to you as it does us?
