3051817-inline-s-1-exclusive-marvel-relaunching-power-man-and-iron-fist-with-all-new-creative-teamMarvel has announced the creative team via Fast Company for the coming Power Man and Iron Fist revival. The series will be written by David F. Walker with art by Sanford Greene. Currently, Walker is writing Cyborg for DC Comics and Greene worked on  Marvel’s Secret Wars tie-in Runaways. Walker said in to Fast Company:

“About a year ago or so, [Marvel editor] Axel Alonso asked me to list all the characters that I wanted to work with the most. He said, ‘Don’t be limited—go as big as you want.’ At the very top of that list were Luke Cage and Danny Rand, and I put in parentheses after their names: ‘as a team.’ Because this was something that I’d wanted to see for years and years. That particular duo, they’re so iconic. As a writer, you love interesting characters, and those two characters are so fun to delve into. They are the ultimate bromantic couple.”

Artist Greene said of the project:

“Growing up as an African-American kid, you identify with these characters. Luke was one of those characters that impacted me. And it was always a dream project to get to work on him. It was the cherry on top to find out it would be Iron Fist as well.”

Both characters will be premiering on television with Luke Cage, played by Mike Colter, debuting on the Netflix series Jessica Jones before getting his own show in 2016. The coming Iron Fist has not announced any cast members yet and will follow on Netflix. No premiere date has been announced.Stay tuned, kids…
