Marvel’s ‘Luke Cage’ Is Coming to Comic-Con 2016!
Marvel’s Netflix Defenders have largely kept to their home turf of Hell’s Kitchen, appearing at New York Comic-Con, rather than the big show in San Diego, but if anyone could break the mold, it’d be Luke Cage. Yes, sweet Christmas, Luke Cage is coming to Comic-Con 2016 for a sneak peek of the new Netflix series.
Deadline broke the news, clarifying that series star Mike Colter would be on-hand for a panel with Alfre Woodard and showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker, if not others. Lucky fans in attendance can likely expect new footage from the September 30 premiere, and if history is any guide, perhaps a full pilot screening itself.
Thus far of Netflix’s Luke Cage, we know that Sons of Anarchy vet Theo Rossi will play “Shades” Alvarez, alongside Mahershala Ali’s Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes, Alfre Woodard’s Mariah Dillard, Erik LaRay Harvey’s Diamondback, Frank Whaley’s Detective Rafael Scarfe and Simone Missick’s Misty Knight. Additionally, Rosario Dawson is confirmed to her reprise her role as Claire Temple for a more significant arc.
Star Mike Colter has also previously spoken to the musicality and flashbacks of the series, which Cheo Hodari Coker will showrun. We’ll also likely meet Iron Fist toward the end of the season as well, but stay tuned for more news of Luke Cage’s September 30 premiere, as well its presence at Comic-Con 2016!
