marvels-luke-cage-posterPremiering Friday, Sept. 30 and starring Mike Colter, Luke Cage will detail the evolution of its titular toughie after he has relocated to Harlem and is in the process of picking up the pieces following his failed relationship with Jessica Jones. Having been endowed by a failed experiment with super strength and unbreakable skin, Luke is pulled out of the shadows to fight a battle for the heart of his city – forcing him to confront a past he had tried to bury.

The cast also includes Mahershala Ali (as Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes), Alfre Woodard (Mariah Dillard), Simone Missick (Misty Knight), Theo Rossi (Shades), Frank Whaley (Rafael Scarfe) and Rosario Dawson (Claire Temple).

Next in queue at Netflix, after Luke Cage, will be Marvel’s Iron Fist, followed by the eight-episode Marvel’s The Defenders team-up event.

    Oh, I don’t know that it was a failed relationship with Jessica (given that the series seems like its going to respect certain in stone storylines from the comics and they are the most stable relationship in like all of the comics, I also expect that Finn Jones likely had a chemistry read he didn’t fully expect with Mike Coulter because I could see them wanting to use the Heroes for Hire stories later) but rather he was totally feeling he should have been able to overcome Kilgrave and couldn’t really face her immediately, and once Claire heard that she was okay, he took off to more, well, lick his wounds.

    Excited for this! Mike Coulter was great in JJ, hopefully the story is good, too.

    I’ll be interested to see how they take a very private Luke from JJ and whether or not he pivots into the totally monetized super hero for hire who is way out in the public eye.
