Dave Bautista as Brass Body featured in new 'The Man With the Iron Fists' trailer
Over the last two days we've seen RZA unleashing a pair of character-specific trailers for The Man with the Iron Fists, focusing on Lucy Liu as Madame Blossom and Cung Le as the Bronze Lion. Our hopes that he would keep working down the incredible cast until he got to ex-WWE superstar David Bautista have been fulfilled with the release of today's trailer featuring the rugged Brass Body.
RZA couldn't stop gushing about Bautista in my recent interview with him, stating...
RZA: [Bautista] always said he felt like he loved The Toad from 'Five Venoms', and he always wanted to be the Toad. I told him, "In this film you can basically say you are the Toad, because you're the one that's invulnerable".One of the reasons why I chose him, because we had a lot to choose from, is I saw him on the internet training with this guy named Marrese Crump, and Dave was fast with that. So I just knew that in a scenario like this, Dave was going to deliver.
He's certainly a massive, imposing figure and in stark contrast to the insanely kinetic kung fu spectacle The Man with the Iron Fists promises to be. Co-written by Eli Roth and presented by Quentin Tarantino, the film follows a motley crew of heroes and villains in 19th century China forced to band together to defeat a traitor that threatens them all. We'll probably see a trailer for Russell Crowe's character, the loner Jack Knife, in the next day or two.
Bautista will also be seen in Vin Diesel's upcoming Riddick sequel as one of the chief villains. The Man with the Iron Fists opens on November 2nd....
