As Marvel nears its full-blown Defenders teamup, we’ve started to see more and more crossover of supporting characters in the individual series. No one personifies that better than Rosario Dawson’s Claire Temple, but according to a recent quote from Daredevil star Charlie Cox, we may already have seen the events of Season 2 crossing over with Luke Cage, and not even realized.
We’re just over a month from Netflix’s long-awaited Luke Cage premiere, and if any one character has fans more excited for the big man himself, it’s Simone Missick’s Misty Knight. The Marvel hero in her own right made sparse appearances in the trailer and photos, but gets full spotlight in a new still from the coming premiere.
Just yesterday, Marvel’s Luke Cage hit the Netflix scene like a ton of bricks by its first trailer, following earlier sneak peeks at Comic-Con 2016. We took a closer look, but see for yourself as Harlem’s hero for hire shows off more of the supporting cast and villainous crew with a new round of photos.
Weeks after its first official teaser at Comic-Con, Marvel’s Netflix Luke Cage got us all Misty with a proper trailer, teasing some snakelike foes and familiar faces for the Harlem hero. We couldn’t help diving way deeper into every frame of footage, so what secrets of Luke Cage hit the streets?
Marvel’s Luke Cage already looms over Harlem in the first Netflix poster, and our third Defender casts and even bigger shadow in the official trailer. After a Comic-Con sneak peek, watch Mike Colter take on Harlem as the hero-for-hire come to life! Did we mention the tiara?
If you've stuck it out with Marvel's mobile game Avengers Academy, you've likely been waiting very patiently for the promised story update that would bring new content, characters and areas of the map. As of today, those dreams have become reality, as it's confirmed that players will soon get access to The Incredible Hulk and the Gamma Zone.
In an interview today on Marvel.com, Avengers Academy's Allen Warner reveals that the latest update will bring The Hulk and --- rather surprisingly --- Tigra to the game, as well as unlocking the Gamma Zone area of the map that has been off-limits since the game's launch. The addition of The Hulk is especially exciting for this particular reporter, as he is voiced by my hero and idol, the one and only John Cena.
You’d be forgiven to note that for all of Marvel’s Luke Cage presence at Comic-Con, we still haven’t seen a proper trailer for the September 30 premiere. That all changes as early as tomorrow, thanks to word from a stylish new poster of our third Defender looming large over Harlem!
We’ve seen Marvel change its plans often enough, between shifted movie release dates and additional seasons/spinoffs for the Netflix series, so might a Misty Knight series be waiting in the wings of Luke Cage? The Marvel hero has a strong-armed history all her own, and executive producers are more than excited for the possibility.
More than another Defender series, Luke Cage is building a tremendous amount of anticipation for its musical stylings, including Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad composing. Episode titles are even named for hip-hop duo Gang Starr, for which showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker now reveals the first three.
Marvel’s Netflix Luke Cage may not have led Netflix’s Defenders, but the hero-for-hire certainly broke new ground in taking the series to eager fans at Comic-Con 2016. We already caught the first trailer, but what major details did Harlem’s newest hero reveal from the assembled cast in San Diego? Our full panel report!
