CBTVB: Luke Cage Waits Patiently for Action

By Muuka Muyumba

New images of Luke Cage (Mike Colter) debut today showing our Hero for Hire working as a barber (?) on the New York set of the upcoming Netflix action series. Actors Colter and Frankie Faison (Silence of the Lambs) appear to be having a conversation on a bench in front of a barber shop called ‘Pop’s’. Possibly signaling we will be seeing Cage after he leaves prison and has to acclimate to a new world with his new powers.

Faison hadn’t been mentioned before in any casting announcements for the series, but he appears to have a pivotal role in the maturation of the hero. After a sabotaged experiment leaves him with super strength and unbreakable skin, Luke Cage 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.
