“A couple of months ago, I wrote a piece on Iron Fist and why his race should absolutely be bent for his much-anticipated (and much-delayed) Netflix debut.
Since then, I’ve gotten my share of responses on said piece. Some good. Some bad. The overwhelming consensus, however, is that people wanted to see me take a shot at casting K’un-L’un’s shining star before they evaluated the piece any further.
To be honest, I was reluctant to honor this request. This is not because I didn’t want the challenges that come with fan-casting. No. I was reluctant because of how tedious castings are and how much research goes into the entire process.” – Lex Luther @ movie pilot
