New ‘Luke Cage’ Posters Put Powerful Women in the Spotlight
Sure, Luke Cage may have the title focus, but a more than sizable chunk of fans will watch Marvel’s latest Netflix premiere for Simone Missick’s Misty Knight, and an otherwise stellar supporting cast. As such, Misty gets her own Luke Cage poster, along with Rosario Dawson’s increasingly-integral Claire.
The Luke Cage Twitter account released two new posters for the upcoming September 30 premiere, both featuring some commanding lines for Misty Knight and Claire Temple. We’re still waiting on the villains of the piece, Mahersahala Ali’s Cottonmouth and Alfre Woodard’s Mariah Dillard, but you know what they say about keeping your friends closer:
And hey – why not? Let’s have some new photos:
Says the official synopsis:
After a sabotaged experiment leaves him with super strength and unbreakable skin, Luke Cage (Mike Colter) becomes a fugitive trying to rebuild his life in modern day Harlem, New York City. But he is soon pulled out of the shadows and must fight a battle for the heart of his city – forcing him to confront a past he had tried to bury.
Netflix’s Luke Cage will feature among its supporting cast Sons of Anarchy vet Theo Rossi as “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.
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!
