Mike Colter promised two things are in store for Season 1 of Luke Cage — lots of ‘badassery’ and lots of “sweet Christmases.”
The actor who portrays the title character of the third Marvel/Netflix superhero drama — following Daredevil and Jessica Jones — spoke at Wizard World in St. Louis.
He said, “[Luke Cage is] going to do a lot of badass stuff! Prepare for badassery.” And then added, “Yeah, I’m going to say Sweet Christmas a lot.”
Luke Cage will cover the origin of the man with unbreakable skin. Colter said, “I think we show [how he came to be] in a really cool way.” He added that Cage “wasn’t trying to be a superhero [in Jessica Jones]. This series is about him growing into that.”
Luke Cage also stars Simone Missick as Misty Knight, Theo Rossi as Shades, Frank Whaley as Rafael Scarfe, Mahershala as Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes, Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple, and Sonia Braga as Claire’s mom, Soledad.
Luke Cage will premiere on September 30, 2016.SuperFable
