Ryan Phillippe is meeting with Marvel about a Netflix series

04.29.2015

Given the success of Marvel's Daredevil on Netflix, we're bound to hear a lot more news about the other three shows gearing up to hit. A.K.A. Jessica Jones is the furthest along, starring Krysten Ritter in the titular role. We've seen that Mike Colter will make an appearance there before getting his own Luke Cage show, and that leaves just one Defender left: Iron Fist. That's led some to believe that this next name has a shot at the role. Just recently, Ryan Phillippe was asked on Howard Stern what projects he had on the horizon, and he had no qualms divulging a little bit of information.

Ryan Phillippe on upcoming projects:

Marvel is interested in talking about Netflix. A series, possibly.

Now, as we've seen so far, each show is casting a wide range of great actors to fill up its roster. If Phillippe does indeed take part in a series, it really could be any role at this point. That didn't stop speculation running rampant, pushing Phillippe to post the following on his Twitter account.

I can't say I feel one way or the other over the guy, but he did a bang-up job in Christopher McQuarrie's (MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE ROGUE NATION) directorial debut, THE WAY OF THE GUN. I found the cast for Daredevil to be, more or less, pitch perfect. I have no doubts that if they find a role for Phillippe, it should suit him well.

Marvel's next Netflix show, A.K.A. Jessica Jones, will hit later this year.

Say what you will about the film as a whole, but THE WAY OF THE GUN has a hell of an opener.

I think he would be great as Danny Rand.

Netflix is hitting it out of the park so far. Let's hope they keep the quality on par (or better) than what we've seen thus far.

1) Way of the Gun has not only one of the best opening scenes in any movie, it also has one of the best lines of any movie. Not going to post it on here though so I don't upset the PC crowd.

2) I think Pillippe could work as Iron Fist. I'm not entirely familiar with the character in the comics, other than his stories deal with a lot of mysticism and he was at one point partners with Luke Cage. But Phillippe definitely has a superhero look to him and it's not like he's lighting the box

!

I agree with some comments on why he never became big. Looks for days, acting...
Just name a show "Ryan Phillippe running with Shirt Off", SOLD.
On that note can we get a show, called 'Ryan3' or something, just have Ryan: Phillippe, Gosling and Reynolds running around doing stuff?

Please be cast as Iron Fist! I have been watching him on Secrets and Lies and I have always been a fan of his. The guy knows how to do intense. He was so good in The way of the Gun, The Lincoln Lawyer, and Breach. I could never understand why he never hit it big.

The guy already has a black belt, so sure, why not Iron Fist.

I think he would be a solid choice for Iron Fist. He definitely has the look for it and the dramatic acting chops that would come with it.

Everyone is thinking Iron Fist, maybe he could be the villian for Luke Cage.

Hey, he could be Bullseye at the minute but what villain would he be in Luke Cage?

I really don't know much about Cage, let alone his villains.

Always liked the guy, and that scene from WOTG is the funniest thing Silverman has ever done.

Magruber really was a revelation for me. It's not that I didn't like him before (The Way of the Gun, or even Crash), but his ability as a straight-man has been largely devalued. I wouldn't mind him in the Marvel Universe, but I don't know a thing about Iron Fist, so I won't comment beyond that.

I never really liked him until I saw him in MacGruber. I'm on board if he's Iron Fist. I can't possibly picture anyone else. Who else could it even be? The Punisher? I doubt that.

This does just stink of Danny Rand.

To be honest. They could do worse. Interesting that Ryan was born in the same year that Danny Rand made his first comic appearance,
