So for those of you who have seen Civil War, you might have caught a significant moment that might have given us a hint about the upcoming season of Luke Cage! Are you excited? Because I'm excited.
(Seriously, spoilers, you've been warned).
Hello Alfre Woodard!
She was announced as part of the cast of Luke Cage last year, and she made a special appearance in Civil War. After Tony's speech at MIT, he meets a bereaved mother who lays the death of her son in Sokovia at his feet. He's clearly shaken, and it moves the events of the Sokovia Accords further. The question now is, what does this mean for Luke Cage? It's clear that the aftermath of Civil War is going to be important for him. In the comics he was pretty staunchly Team Cap, and it looks like that might carry over to the series!
(Side note: There hasn't been much crossover between the tv series and the films since Coulson's death, so bravo to Woodard for bridging the gap!)
Luke Cage is scheduled for release on September 30th!
So we have a long time to guess at what Woodard's role is going to be!
