Last year, Netflix unveiled two of their four Marvel TV shows, Marvel's Daredevil and Marvel's Jessica Jones, which will be followed by Marvel's Luke Cage and Marvel's Iron Fist in 2016, although the streaming service hasn't announced premiere dates for these last two shows yet. Marvel's Luke Cage is still in production, with filming under way in New York City. Today, we have new photos from the set that could offer a few potential SPOILERS, so be sure to read on at your own risk. These photos feature series star Mike Colter, whose title character has seemingly gotten in some trouble with the law.
These photos show Luke Cage getting into a physical confrontation with a few NYPD cops, although no details were given about the scenes the actor was shooting. We also don't know where exactly in the series these scenes take place, but hopefully we'll have more details soon. Last week, a rumor surfaced that the streaming service is eyeing a late summer debut for the show, but that hasn't been confirmed. Marvel's Luke Cage is the third of four new shows on Netflix, the first of which, Marvel's Daredevil, debuted in April, followed by Marvel's Jessica Jones in November. The second season of Marvel's Daredevil is debuting in March, and Jessica Jones was just renewed last week for a second season, and it isn't known when that will debut yet. Netflix's Ted Sarandos said at the TCA winter tour that it will be a range of about eight to 15 months between each show's debut, but that might not be the case with Marvel's Luke Cage.
If Marvel's Luke Cage debuts in August, it will be six months after Daredevil Season 2. It's worth noting that the first season of Marvel's Jessica Jones debuted seven months after Marvel's Daredevil, but there is only a five-month gap between the first season of Marvel's Jessica Jones and the second season of Marvel's Daredevil. We'll have to wait and see if Netflix will issue an official premiere date for the next series soon.
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. Marvel's Luke Cage is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.
The supporting cast also includes Rosario Dawson, reprising her role as Claire Temple, a.k.a. Night Nurse, Mahershala Ali as Cottonmouth, Theo Rossi as Sonny, Alfre Woodard as Black Mariah, Simone Missick as Misty Knight and Sonia Braga as Claire Temple's mother. Another cryptic teaser for Daredevil Season 2 teased that Luke Cage may have a presence when that show returns in spring 2016. While the video didn't show any footage, it did reveal that Matt Murdock's favorite Hell's Kitchen dive bar, Josie's, will be turned into Luke's, hinting that Luke Cage himself may take over the bar. Take a look at these latest set photos, and stay tuned for more on Marvel's Luke Cage.
