With the “Jessica Jones” series already creating such a buzz for “The Defenders” mini-series, it’s fair for Luke Cage, her colleague/lover to start bulldozing that same road to further raise merry hell in the gritty side of Netflix. Read on if you want to know about spoilers for Marvel’s “Luke Cage” series.
Mike Colter, who plays Cage in the stunning first outing of “Jessica Jones,” will now have the blinding spotlight all his own as he returns as the hero for hire with super-strength and unbreakable skin in the dog-eat-dog neighborhood of Harlem. Daily Mail Online recently shared set photos of the actor along with his co-stars giving us a sneak-peek of an action-packed scene.
Actress Rosario Dawson is a recognizable face in the publicity photos as she first appeared as the Hell’s Kitchen nurse named Claire Temple in “Daredevil” of which she also reprised in “Jessica Jones.” “Luke Cage” mainstays Simone Missick who will portray Misty Knight and Frank Whaley as his tough partner Detective Rafael Scarfe are also featured in the photos.
In the first photo, Temple is in a state of shock as she comes to the aid of a gunned-down Scarfe bleeding through his stomach. Another image shows a somewhat lifeless Scarfe lying flat on his back while Misty Knight, Claire Temple, and Luke Cage haplessly watched on. Seeing that Scarfe is a full-time cast we can concur that he will survive such a bloody ordeal. There are some lighthearted photos between Dawson and Colter off-camera as also between Dawson and Whaley.
According to AOL Build, Colter beefed himself up to 30 pounds of pure muscle to play the role of Cage who becomes a fugitive after a freak accident gave him his superhuman abilities. The actor is also set to appear as Cage in the second season of “Daredevil,” the first Marvel venture of Netflix, according to Latin Post.
Other actors in the main cast for “Luke Cage” are Alfre Woodard as Mariah Dillard, Theo Rossi as Shades and Sônia Braga as Soledad Temple.
