Still can’t get enough of “The Man with the Iron Fists”? Good. Here is a new character spot, but unlike previous spots that focused on other characters not named The Blacksmith (aka writer/director/star RZA’s character from the film), this spot actually focuses on him, so it might be the last one. From the looks of it, the Blacksmith and Russell Crowe’s Jack Knife eventually team up. Interesting. Also, a 3-minute animated short provides a little background on The Blacksmith’s character and his ongoing struggles against Brass Body (played by Dave Bautista).

Since his arrival in China’s Jungle Village, the town’s blacksmith (RZA) has been forced by radical tribal factions to create elaborate tools of destruction. When the clans’ brewing war boils over, the stranger channels an ancient energy to transform himself into a human weapon. As he fights alongside iconic heroes and against soulless villains, one man must harness this power to become savior of his adopted people.

“The Man with the Iron Fists”, also starring Lucy Liu, Jamie Chung, Pam Grier, Cung Le, Osric Chau, Daniel Wu, Chia Hui Liu, Rick Yune, Zhu Zhu, and Byron Mann, battles for supremacy November 2, 2012.
