Marvel Studios or Netflix has yet to make an official announcement.
The series stars Mike Colter as Luke Cage, with a supporting cast of Mahershala Ali, Frankie Faison, Darius Kaleb, Simone Missick, Theo Rossi, Frank Whaley, and Alfre Woodard. Rosario Dawson will appear in one episode.
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.
Colter talked about how he expects Luke Cage to fit in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and follow up Jessica Jones.
“I would like to think that while we are in the same world, it’s going to feel a little more, I guess, urban is the word most people would say…The characters that live uptown are different than the characters that live in Hell’s Kitchen, but you will see some crossover characters as you already noticed on the previous series. So there are similarities, but definitely, you’re going to notice that you’re in Harlem as opposed to Hell’s Kitchen. We want to be true to Harlem as a part of town and distinctly different than Hell’s Kitchen,” said Colter to Den of Geek.
As far as the other Marvel properties at Netflix; Jessica Jones was renewed for a second season, a Punisher series is in the works, and Iron Fist found a showrunner in Scott Buck with all the characters involved in a Defenders mini-series sometime in 2018.
