On Thursday, Marvel TV took over Comic-Con’s second biggest venue, Ballroom 20, to present their next new Netflix series, Luke Cage starring Mike Colter. Fans were first introduced to the indestructible bartender in last year’s Jessica Jones, but this fall he’ll branch out on his own to become the hero of Harlem.
Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb was on hand to moderate the panel, with showrunner Cheo Coker and actors Mike Colter, Mahershala Ali, Alfre Woodard, Frank Whaley, Theo Rossi, and Simone Missick all onstage to tell you why Luke Cage could be your next new favorite show. Below, read a rundown of everything we learned at the Luke Cage Comic-Con panel, including who all the new villains and allies are, and what makes Luke Cage unique in the Marvel universe. (And don’t forget to check out the first Luke Cage teaser trailer and our Luke Cage footage recap if you haven’t already.)

Mike Colter made his Marvel universe debut as the unbreakable Luke Cage last year in Jessica Jones, but this fall he’ll get to grab the spotlight all for himself. Today at San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel TV and Netflix unveiled the very first Luke Cage teaser trailer. The series also stars Mahershala Ali as Cornell Stokes, Alfre Woodard as Mariah Dillard, Theo Rossi as Shades, Frank Whaley as Scarfe, and Simone Missick as Misty Knight. Watch the first Luke Cage teaser below. Read More »
There was a lot to love in the first season of Marvel’s Jessica Jones series, but one of things I loved most was Mike Colter‘s Luke Cage. We knew from the start that this soulful, sensitive, and dashing bartender (who also, you know, just so happens to have unbreakable skin) was going to be the star of his own series and would eventually unite with the rest of the Marvel Netflix stable of characters for a Defenders series, but Colter made a solo series for Luke feel like a priority in the midst of another character’s show. That’s something special.
With San Diego Comic-Con right around the corner, all things superhero are about to invade headlines with the force of a well-timed punch from Mr. Cage himself. So why don’t we kick off this week with a new Luke Cage poster that will be available to Comic-Con attendees later this week?

After announcing a season two pickup for Marvel’s Jessica Jones, Netflix presented a panel with the cast and creators of the show. After her panel, Krysten Ritter spoke with journalists further. When she signed up for the show, there were already plans to join the Netflix Marvel characters in a Defenders series. News of getting her own second season delighted Ritter.
“I love Jessica and I’m so excited to see what happens next for her,” Ritter said. “When I watched the show the weekend it came out with everybody else, I was like, ‘Okay, what’s next?’ Which is kind of what happens with all the Netflix shows. You need more. So I’m excited to see where she goes next and how she handles this next chapter of her life.”
More on season 2 after the jump, including Jessica’s upcoming arc, where Jessica and Luke might meet next, and whether a certain someone will return.

The first Jessica Jones teaser released last week was fantastic — gorgeous, moody, mysterious, and even helpful, thanks to its release date reveal. But it didn’t actually show us much of the series itself. For that, we turn to the new batch of official images released today.

The Jessica Jones images also reveal David Tennant as Kilgrave, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, Rachael Taylor as Trish Walker, and Carrie-Anne Moss as Harper. See them all after the jump. Read More »
