CBTVB: Luke Cage Premiere Date Revealed?

By Muuka Muyumba

Marvel’s Daredevil had its black carpet premiere last night and Marvel’s Luke Cage star Mike Colter let a little news slip. When asked about the level of action in the series, Colter said “[i]ts going to be action packed from the beginning to the very end. Trust me. Daredevil premieres March 18, and I will see the fans on September 30.”

So, we will get Marvel’s Luke Cage in September, a little earlier than most have speculated since Marvel’s Jessica Jones got a November debut date after Daredevil’s premiere in April 2015. Marvel appears that they’ve moved their calendar up a bit, and I wonder whether Marvel will eventually start putting out 3 series in a calendar year once Iron Fist gets established.

Colter’s Luke Cage actually made his debut on Netflix in last spring’s Marvel’s Jessica Jones, where he established his stoic intensity in his torrid love affair with Krysten Ritter’s Jessica Jones.

Marvel’s Defenders series is a set of Netflix shows centered on ‘street-level’ heroes, Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist (Finn Jones), in Manhattan, New York. Marvel’s original plan was to break each hero in their own series, and then have them team up to form the Defenders. However, now that the series have been lavished with critical praise, Marvel appears to be putting off the full team up further and further on down the line.

Marvel’s Luke Cage stars Colter, Mahershala Ali, Frankie Faison, Darius Kaleb, Simone Missick, Theo Rossi, Frank Whaley, Alfre Woodard, and Jaiden Kaine. Showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker brings us an updated version of the hero-for-hire with unbreakable skin in September, and I can’t wait!
