Mike Colter cast as Luke Cage


In a recent press release, the previously rumoured Mike Colter has been confirmed to play Marvel’s resident street hero Luke Cage in the upcoming adaptation for TV. The Hollywood Reporter says he’ll star first in the Jessica Jones show, before moving into his own solo series.

Executive producer/showrunner Melissa Rosenberg told Marvel.com that ‘“Mike embodies the strength, edge and depth of Luke Cage…We’re excited to have him bring this iconic Marvel character to life.”

Luke Cage has been in the comics scene since the 70’s, so it’ll be interesting to finally see him played in a live action setting. What do you guys think of the casting? Tell us in the comments below! Here’s Luke Cage as well, for reference.
