Meet the Cast of Marvel's Luke Cage

     
Marvel's third superhero franchise coming to Netflix has been a long time coming. Luke Cage, sometimes known as Power Man, was one of Marvel's first black superheroes. Created in 1972 in the height of Blacksploitation movies like Shaft and Foxxy Brown, Luke Cage carried a lot of those 70's African American culture cliches, but with the inclusion of talent like Alfre Woodard and Mahershala Ali, hopefully those tropes will be missing from this new series.

Here's a breakdown of the cast.

popMarvel took Netflix binge-watchers by storm with Daredevil earlier this year. Now their next series, Jessica Jones is on its way. Based on one of Marvel's first Rated-R comic series, written by Brian Michael Bendis, Jessica Jones will follow a c-list superhero after tragedy makes her hang up her cape. Now she's an alcoholic private investigator working on super powered cases.

People were worried that Marvel's next "Defender" wouldn't be appearing on Netflix until early 2015, but Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos put those rumors to rest at the Television Critics Association press tour,

"...every six months, you’ll get a new season or series from The Defenders group"

If we can believe that schedule, Krysten Ritter's take on Jessica Jones should be bingeable around October or November. He also clarified that Daredevil Season 2 would be next in line for early 2016, in which the Devil of Hell's Kitchen will take on The Punisher.



But don't expect any cross-overs until all four of The Defenders get their own series. Which means, Daredevil Season 2 will be followed by at least Luke Cage and Iron Fist before the team up begins.

I seemingly benign tweet from the Daredevil official Twitter is causing something of a stir for fans of the Netflix series. We already know that both The Punisher and Elektra will be making their MCU debut in season 2 of Matt Murdock's blind-lawyer-turned-vigilante-crime-fighter show, but now we may have yet another villain!

Late in season 1, Murdock gets the help of Melvin, a slow witted but talented designer to beef up his crime fighting suit. The tweet (seen below) implies that Melvin may take on a new role, as Gladiator, one of Daredevil's first villains.

With both Punisher and Elektra giving Matt a run for his money, we're not sure there's enough room for a Gladiator/Daredevil showdown. Heck, we still want more Fisk and Vanessa.

You may remember a couple weeks ago when Jon Bernthal was officially announced as The Punisher for Netflix's Daredevil, season 2. Now, another classic Marvel hero, Elektra appears to be joining the crew in Hell's Kitchen as well.

Played by Élodie Yung, Elektra is a trained assassin and former college girlfriend of Matt Murdock. She's also a long running romantic interest for the blind vigilante.



The Marvel Cinematic Universe on Netflix is getting bigger and bigger.

Thanks to the lessons learned in Marvel Studios' foray into movies, they're really getting good at tying down actors for the rest of their lives. Toward that end, we learned today that Rosario Dawson (Claire Temple) will be coming back to Daredevil Season 2, and more importantly, any Netflix series they want her to be in.

It's a great move, because Jessica Jones and Luke Cage will probably need a superhero nurse, too.
