Ryan Phillippe In Talks With Marvel For Netflix Series; Possibly Iron Fist



It's learned Ryan Phillippe is in talks with Marvel for something Netflix related.

The 40-year-old actor recently appeared on Howard Stern where he offered: "Marvel is interested in talking about a Netflix series, possibly. The Daredevil series is great."

The actor then followed-up on Twitter with: "I have no real Marvel news other than an upcoming meeting. Sorry to disappoint fans thought there was more to it. There is no story there [smiles]."

Speculation immediately led to Phillppe possibly playing Iron Fist, as the actor has yet to be cast. Interestingly enough, Ryan Phillippe does hold a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, so at least he might be familiar and capable of doing some martial arts moves (IMDb already lists that actor as playing Iron Fist as well).

In the comics, Iron Fist is Daniel Rand, the heir to Rand Corporation, and in the Daredevil series, was the company truck that spilled the chemicals on the young Matt Murdock.
