Steve Carr Waits In Marvel Queue for "Iron Fist" Production

by | March 29, 2007 | Comments

Steve Carr has been announced as the director for the Marvel Comics film "Iron Fist," but he is planning to make other projects first. It’s not that he’s not excited about it, it’s just that Marvel is kind of busy.

"When I have the opportunity, we’ll figure it out but there’s a long line of comic books getting made into films and he’s kind of like a smaller star of that galaxy," said Carr. "So I don’t know when it’s going to happen honestly."

Given his druthers, Carr knows how he’d go with "Iron Fist." "I’d love it to be kind of dark and almost kind of chop-socky kind of vibe, but it feels like there’s a lot of comic book heroes they want to make first."

Marvel has started a trend of using comedy directors to make their superhero movies. Carr would follow Tim Story. "Yeah, Tim Story’s a friend of mine. We came up and he’s a video guy. He’s a really great guy. I think it would be a really interesting opportunity and I’m hoping that it starts to happen a little bit quicker."

Perhaps "Fist" would get going if Jon Favreau‘s "Iron Man" wasn’t stealing all its thunder. "See, I don’t have enough Iron in my title. He has ‘Iron Man,’ I only have a fist. I should have Hot Iron Body. That would get me done first, or Steel Something."
