As the release date nears for Marvel’s upcoming live-action adaptation of Peter David’s acclaimed comic book series The Punisher, the studio has revealed that the film will take place in 2018, with the title of the movie “Iron Fist.”
In the announcement, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige noted that the studio is still in the early stages of production and that “the film will be coming to theaters in 2018.”
“We are very excited to bring this cinematic universe to life with this incredible team of talented filmmakers, and we look forward to premiering it in theaters in 2020,” Feige said.
“This story of one man’s rise to power, from his days as a mercenary to his journey to become the greatest martial artist the world has ever known, is set to captivate audiences and captivates the imagination of all fans.
Iron Fist is a cinematic universe in which one man rises to power and rules the world, while a new generation learns from his mistakes, and rises up to challenge the status quo.
It is a vision of the future that will be embraced by audiences across the globe.”
While no official date has been announced for the film, the trailer released in June 2018 shows off the Punisher as he prepares to battle the Iron Fist.
It also features a glimpse of a new character introduced in the film: The Mandarin.
“We have a very strong commitment to bringing a very big, bold, and bolder, and darker, take on Iron Fist,” Feigen said.
According to a report from Variety, the Mandarin is set for a film in 2019 and will be the first Asian-American superhero.
The Mandarin is one of the world’s most powerful villains, and he’s also one of Iron Fist’s most beloved characters.
He first appeared in Iron Fist #4 in April 2019 and later appeared in the first six issues of the series.
Iron Man 3: The Movie, Iron Fist and The Punishers: A Marvel Cinematic Universe The Punishing One has been a part of Marvel’s cinematic universe since the first series was released in 2005.
In that year, the series was adapted for the big screen by Joe Carnahan (the original series’ writer) and directed by Shane Black.
The Punishment One was a big hit, becoming the highest-grossing comic book movie of all time, selling over 5 million copies worldwide.
Iron Punisher has also been the subject of several films and television series.
The first series, Iron Punishment, ran from 2005 to 2007, and was based on the Punishing one-shot comic book written by writer David Michelinie.
It was followed by Iron Fist in 2008, Iron Man 2 in 2010 and The Defenders in 2013.
