Is Alain Moussi In The Running For Marvel's IRON FIST?
The martial artist is primarily known for his stunt work on the likes of X-Men: DOFP and Pacific Rim, but he will next play the lead in the upcoming Kickboxer remake. Could he also be in the running to play Danny Rand in Netfix's Iron Fist series?
Alain Moussi posted the below image to his Facebook page. Now obviously there's every chance he's simply pulling a Tyrese Gibson and trying to drum up the support he needs to be in with a shot of playing Danny Rand in Marvel's Iron Fist series, but it is also possible he has had some discussions about it and is genuinely researching the character for that reason. Moussi is an actor and stuntman, who's worked on a great many movies and TV shows over the years. He will next star as Kurt Sloane in the reboot of Kickboxer, which will feature the original Sloane, Jean-Claude Van Damme, as his mentor.
It definitely makes sense for Marvel to hire a prolific martial artist for this role, though I suppose it's not really an absolute necessity if they decide to go with a bigger name. Plus, if Moussi actually was in the running, it's unlikely he'd be dropping hints about it like this. But hey, it worked for Vin Diesel! Even if he is involved, it could also just be as a stuntman of course. What do you guys think? Could you see Moussi as Danny Rand? If not, who's your pick?
