Sweet Christmas, ‘Luke Cage’ Looks Buff in First Comic-Con 2016 Poster
Later this week will see Luke Cage make history as the first Marvel Defender to reach Comic-Con, and San Diego is going to have trouble containing the hero for hire, if the new poster is any indication. Luke Cage has been bulking up in a stylish new look at the September premiere!
Ahead of this week’s Comic-Con 2016 panel, TVInsider debuted a new look at production concept art-turned poster for Marvel’s Luke Cage, a stylish black and yellow number highlighting Mike Colter’s buff physique. The impressive stature was not lost on poster artist and Marvel boss Joe Quesada, who says:
There’s always great pressure with superhero posters. You’ve got one shot to encapsulate a character with a pose that’s provocative and that you hope will someday be iconic … Mike gives Luke a smoldering strength. He’s sexy and calming. And the ladies love it.
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.
