In anticipation of “Luke Cage”, Mike Colter who plays the titular hero shared what to expect from it in an interview with the L.A. Times. The actor revealed how the upcoming series would be different from the other Marvel/Netflix series like “Marvel’s Jessica Jones”, on which his character was introduced, and “Daredevil”.
” ‘Luke Cage’ is going to have soul, it’s going to have intensity, it’s going to have dark parts to it,” Colter told the publication. “I think what’s going to make it unique is also the musicality of it. There’s going to be a musical taste that you found a little bit in ‘Jessica’. It defines itself through sound that you can feel when you’re watching the scenes, whether it’s something that’s actually a song that they’re playing or actually just the pulse of the music that they choose thematically.”
” ‘Luke Cage’ is going to define itself in that way, and it’s going to define itself in the locations that we’re doing,” he added. “It’s no secret that you’re going to find Luke Cage uptown after the [‘Jessica Jones’] series is over, so the things that happen to him and Jessica will affect him. And then when you find him months later in Harlem, you’ll see him in a different setting. That’s going to be a setting that’s surrounded with different characters and different light all unto itself.”
Colter also discussed possibility of Cage seen in his signature yellow shirt. “Anything that’s primarily ‘Luke Cage’ we want to save for Luke Cage’s series. I’m not saying that you’re going to see the yellow shirt, but if you’re going to see it, it’ll be in Luke Cage’s series,” he shared.
“Luke Cage” is hitting Netflix in the fourth quarter of 2016.
