Nick Paglino

Comingsoon.net has posted an interview with RZA, the director of the upcoming film The Man With The Iron Fist. On former WWE star Dave Bautista’s role in the film, RZA said, "Another buddy who is on board is Dave Batista, the world wrestling champion who left and now he’s into Strikeforce and he’s going to be doing mixed martial arts. To have him come on as Glass Body, when I talked to him about it, he was like, "I always wanted to be The Toad in ‘Five Deadly Venoms,’" and I said, this isn’t The Toad but the character is very similar, and he said it would be his honor to do it."
