Marvel's Luke Cage: Alfre Woodard Eyes Pivotal Role in Netflix Series

Marvel’s Luke Cage has tapped an acting superhero to join its ranks.

Alfre Woodard is nearing a deal to play a key role in Netflix’s latest Marvel series, which stars The Good Wife‘s Mike Colter as the titular character.

Per Deadline, which first broke the news, Woodard will co-star as Minetta, a powerful woman in local politics who will have an impact on Luke Cage’s life and who may or may not be a version of the Marvel villain Black Mariah.

Viewers will get a first look at Colter’s Luke Cage in Netflix’s second Marvel project, Jessica Jones.

Cheo Hodari Coker (NCIS: LA, Southland) will serve as the show’s executive producer and showrunner.

Marvel’s Luke Cage will bow in 2016.
