Former WWE wrestler and world heavyweight champion Batista will appear in the upcoming movie, The Man with the Iron Fists.

The first trailer for the film is now stirring up buzz on the web. 

To see Batista as a face-busting super dude in the film's trailer, you'll first have to watch a number of stylized fight scenes and copious amounts of female nudity. 

RZA of Wu-Tang Clan fame, makes his debut as a director with Iron Fists.

His style seems heavily influenced by Quentin Tarantino.

In what looks to be the kind of male-satisfying action flick that WWE Studios wishes it could produce, Iron Fists will feature RZA in front of the camera, Lucy Liu and Russell Crowe in starring roles and WWE alum, Batista as Brass Body.

Judging by the images in the trailer and the character's name, Brass Body will likely be a man capable of turning his flesh into brass. 

Though not a completely original character, (X-Men's Colossus has been changing into metals since 1975) in the context of a seemingly fast-paced and action heavy movie, Batista's role could be an exciting part of a hit movie.   

Though set in 19th century China, the film appears to play fast and loose with historical accuracies, instead focusing on striking visuals, gory violence and lots of naked Asian women. 

The plot centers around a blacksmith (RZA) who joins a team of warriors to protect a village. 

RZA co-wrote the screenplay with Eli Roth, who is most famous for directing the brutal and bloody Hostel movies. 

Not surprisingly, RZA also provides some of the music. Other artists promised to be on the soundtrack are The Black Keys, Kanye West and The Wu-Tang Clan.    

Batista appears to have been casted well. He'll be asked to look good beating people up and to scream intensely. 

Having done just that for eight years as a WWE wrestler, Batista should do quite well as Brass Body.
