Film Fantasy Friday: Heroes for Hire

This week's edition of Movies That Should Be Made By Me is the badass cast of Heroes for Hire. Created by Ed Hannigan and Lee Elias, HfH was originally just Power Man and Iron Fist, kicking ass. The team that this film will be using is COMPLETELY ONE OF MY OWN MAKING. The current team has some people I love and some people I hate; also, the plot will be a mash-up of origin story and current Marvel-u occurrences (chiefly Shadowland), so this time, my opinions are really shining through. Behold, the future-cast of Heroes for Hire.

Luke Cage/Power Man: played by Terry Crews (sorry, Old Spice Dude), Luke has superhuman strength, near-inpenetrable skin, and a sweet chain. A skilled street fighter, Luke teams up with Danny Rand to form a team called Heroes for Hire in response to the apparently out-of-control Daredevil.

Danny Rand/Iron Fist: played by Cam Gigandet, Danny is a rich boy with serious kung fu skills. The head of the Rand Corporation, his legacy from his father, Danny and Luke sometimes clash over their backgrounds and respective amounts of $$$. Danny is in an on-again, off-again relationship with Misty Knight.

Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow: played by Rebecca Romijn, Natasha is a turncoat (...) Russian spy, martial artist, assassin, and sniper, among other things. Initially she is allied with Daredevil, since they're sleeping together and all, but once he goes nutso she teams up with the HfH.

Misty Knight: played by Erykah Badu, Misty is an expert martial artist, uses big guns, is an excellent detective, and has a cybernetic arm which can punch through adamantium. She and Colleen are the first heroes sought out by Luke and Danny for their new team-up.

Colleen Wing: played by Rinko Kikuchi, Colleen is a trained samurai and has control over her chi in a way similar to Danny; using this control she can enhance her speed and strength, though she is not a superhuman. Colleen and Misty are partners; their duo is called "Daughters of the Dragon".

Marc Spector/Moon Knight: played by Jason Statham, Marc is a former CIA operative and a mercenary. After a vision of the Egyptian moon god Khonshu, Marc took on the persona of Moon Knight, whose powers wane and wax with the moon. He is a bit of a nutbar, but fights with the HfH after Daredevil tries to have him killed.

Matt Murdock/Daredevil/the Beast: played by Aaron Eckhart, Daredevil is currently in control of the Hand, a ninja force, and the power's going to his head. It doesn't help matters that he's being possessed by a demonic spirit known as the Beast.

And that's how Diana casts it! All images pulled from Google and Wikipedia. Have a great Halloween, everyone. I just got into work wielding a sonic screwdriver and a pair of white high-top Chucks...the rest of the Who-drobe awaits at home. Pics to come, perhaps.
