Marvel hires screenwriter for IRON FIST movie

Disney's acquisition of Marvel has brought  forth infinite more possibilities for Marvel properties to make it to the big screen. One of the first of which seems to be Iron Fist, a character very well known for fans of comics, but virtually unknown to everyone else.

Disney has now picked up a writer to pen a script for the character.

Rich Wilkes, who is best known for writing XXX, has been hired to bring the IRON FIST to the big screen. It's a pretty daring move for Marvel and Disney to move forward with IRON FIST, since he isn't a name brand hero, but the idea of a more martial arts-based Marvel movie is intriguing.

I thoroughly enjoy the Iron Fist and the man behind the mask, Danny Rand, and can't wait to see what they do with the project.

Are there any other lesser-known Marvel heroes you'd like to see make it to the big screen? Dr. Strange, maybe?
