Is A HEROES FOR HIRE Movie On The Horizon?
While being interviewed by Buzzfeed about the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon, Jeph Loeb may have let slip that Marvel are planing to bring Luke Cage and Iron Fist to the big screen in a Heroes For Hire movie. Read on and see what you make of it..
There have been whispers and rumors of a Heroes For Hire movie going back as far as when The Avengers was first announced, but there has only ever been vague talk of it from the guys at Marvel, and never anything concrete. Until now? Jeph Loeb (Marvel's head of television) has mentioned the potential project while discussing the Ultimate Spider-Man animated series with Buzzfeed (via Bleeding Cool) and he brings it up in the same breath as Marvel's last big movie announcement, Guardians Of The Galaxy...
Just like we just announced Guardians of the Galaxy, we are certainly looking at the Heroes for Hire franchise which is Luke Cage and Iron Fist.
Seems pretty cut and dry right? Well Loeb IS head of Marvel's TV department, and we know there are still plans to bring their AKA Jessica Jones - which will apparently feature Luke Cage - show to the small screen, so he may have been referring to that and lumped it in with the GOTG movie. Either way, he doesn't elaborate so this is all we have to go on. I have no doubt that Marvel have big screen plans for one or both of these characters at some point anyway, the question is when.
