Television audiences first caught glimpse of Luke Cage in the Netflix series Jessica Jones, but now the comic book superhero with unbreakable skin is getting his own highly anticipated series. Executive producer and showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker – whose long list of impressive credits includes Notorious, Ray Donovan and Southland, to name a few, envisions Luke Cage as “’The Wire’ of Marvel television.” How’s that for a strong pitch?
Actor Mike Colter is perfectly suited for Power Man, a reluctant hero who was wrongfully imprisoned and whose body was scientifically altered. Now armed with super strength and on a quest for redemption, nothing can stop him.
Before Luke Cage debuts on Netflix on September 30, read up on Mr. Colter and learn a little something about what the show promises to deliver. We’re sure that Luke Cage (and actor Mike Colter) will make a fan out of you yet.
