Mike Colter Teases Heroes for Hire for ‘Luke Cage’ Season 2
Luke Cage season 2 is on its way, and while right now it’s exciting to think of the possibilities the series can bring us, with Misty and her bionic arm or the fact that Danny Rand will be having an appearance on the show.
In a recent interview with BlackFilm, about his recent role in Girls Trip and its release on Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand today- October 17, 2017-, Mike Colter, a.k.a our Luke Cage, talked a little about season 2 of his show.
“We’re working on it right now. It will be sometime next year. We’re not finished filming yet and after that, it’s based on timing and when they want to drop it. It’s like a record. “When do you want to drop it?” Netflix has their own agenda and their own schedule, so I’ll assume it’s next year. How soon? I don’t know, but hopefully the first quarter or first half.”
But when asked about the presence of “The Immortal Iron Fist” on his show, Mike Colter had some interesting ideas about the dynamic between these two characters on the show.
“There are people that love the idea of Heroes for Hire. When people saw The Defenders, they thought the relationship was good between Finn and I and they are curious. They want to see more of that. He will bring some fresh blood in the new season and I’m hoping that people will respond to it well. We are teamed up for a bit. That’s the whole point of bringing that flavour to it. I can see how this works. That’s what good about it. We’re giving people what they want. A lot of times people wanted to see Jessica Jones and Luke and what happens to them, but we went out on a limb, and decided to “let’s give a little heroes for hire somewhere in the season and see what happens.” Hopefully people will respond to it.”
It is a reality that, although Iron Fist was the least liked series of the Marvel/Netflix alliance, Danny wasn’t that hated when he appeared on The Defenders, as his relationship with Luke seemed to influence him and changed him, even just a little bit.
In the interview, however, he did not clarify for how many episodes will Danny be part of Luke Cage season 2, but if Mike’s words seem to hint at Heroes for Hire, we might see more of Rand than we originally thought.
