CBTVB: Sonia Braga Joins Marvel’s Luke Cage

By Muuka Muyumba

Marvel and Netflix are upping the ante with each series they premiere as Jessica Jones is seeping into the consciousness in a devastating way. Luke Cage’s solo series is up next and the cast continues to grow. Today, a new addition to the cast was made with Sonia Braga being cast as ‘Soledad Temple’, the mother of Night Nurse Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson).


Dawson was introduced in Marvel’s Daredevil series, but had a significant cameo in an episode of Jessica Jones to help link the heroes in the Defenders saga. Braga’s addition suggests an even greater role for Dawson’s Temple in Luke Cage, but we don’t know in what way yet.

Luke Cage stars Mike Colter who was a crucial part of the Jessica Jones series as well, and whet the appetite of the audience for his portrayal to continue. Cage romanced Jessica after discovering her secret and revealing his own. Their connection went unrequieted as obstacles were laid in their path to make the ultimate connection they wished for.

Luke Cage also features Alfre Woodard, Mahershah Ali, Theo Rossi, Simone Missick, and Frank Whaley, under the guidance and writing of Cheo Hodari Coker.

Marvel’s Luke Cage will likely hit Netflix in the second half of 2016.
