For those of you already done with Jessica Jones...
We're all looking forward to this, right? Luke Cage was one of my favorite characters in Jessica Jones. I'm so ready for him to star in a series of his own. And thought it's not coming out until some time next year, these set photos promise that there's something good in store.
If you live in NYC, you definitely know storefronts like these.
They're a big part of the culture. One of the complaints fans had about Daredevil was that it didn't seem like it took place in the New York of today. Hopefully Luke Cage will do better!
Rosario Dawson aka Claire Temple.
So glad to keep seeing her- she was great in Daredevil so it was kind of sad she wasn't a major part of Jessica Jones. It would be awesome if her role was bigger in Luke Cage.
Looks like they'll get to spend time together without one of them being unconscious.
The question here is: What stopped that car?
Could it have been Luke, or is there something (else) superhuman going on here?
Okay so it looks like it was probably Luke.
I don't want to say much about Cornell Stokes right now just in case people haven't read the comics, and it seems like Marvel feels the same way. But here's Alfre Woodard who will be playing his cousin Mariah Dillard.
This series has a lot of expectations ahead of it.
Despite the rising number of nonwhite fans, so far Marvel's universe has been overwhelmingly white. The Black Panther film release date has been pushed forward multiple times, and is not expected until 2018. Which means that Luke Cage will be Marvel's first nonwhite hero to get a live-action title. Seems a bit overdue. But that doesn't take away from the facts: He's a great character, with a loyal fanbase, and Mike Colter is an amazing actor.
And I will say this: The hoodie symbolism is pretty brilliant.
