The third Marvel series for Netflix, Luke Cage, should begin shooting soon, and we’ll see the show in 2016. The series follows Daredevil, which had its first season debut earlier this year, and Jessica Jones, which just finished it’s primary shoot, and will debut later in 2015. Luke Cage will star Mike Coulter as the title character (who gets his introduction in Jessica Jones) but at this point we don’t know much more about the show.
There’s a rumored Luke Cage synopsis doing the rounds, however, and since the character is probably an unknown to mainstream audiences we’ll indulge it, even if the description is basically just a condensed synopsis of early Marvel Comics issues. Read More »
