While we patiently await some more casting news for the Marvel & Netflix’s upcoming Iron Fist series, we do have a small but cool new bit of news regarding the project. It appears that the upcoming venture into Marvel’s mystical martial arts realm has landed Brett Chan, who previously worked on Netflix’s Marco Polo series, as the stunt coordinator. A fan asked Philip J. Silvera (Daredevil) if he had any information regarding who would be the stunt coordinator for the series and Silvera replied with the following.

Chan has also previously worked on X2: X-Men United, Blade: Trinity, The Last Samurai and Arrow as a stunt performer. Being familiar with his work, it definitely looks like they’re assembling the right team here to bring this one to life. It’s my most-anticipated of Marvel’s Netflix projects, so here’s hoping that they nail it. You can check out some of his work in the videos below and let us know what you think in the comments section afterwards.
