Mike Colter officially named as Luke Cage in the Netflix series.
We finally have confirmation (via Marvel.com) that actor Mike Colter will be playing Luke Cage in the upcoming Netflix show, A.K.A. Jessica Jones.
A.K.A. Jessica Jones will be the second of five Marvel series on Netflix, with the first being Daredevil. Colter can currently be seen Lemond Bishop, a drug dealer, on The Good Wife, and on the X-Box original series Halo: Nightfall.
Colter is a good actor an a great choice. I know a lot of people were screaming for Terry Crews, but I just don’t think Crews has the range as an actor. I don’t hate Crews, but he only seems to do comedies. I feel that Colter is a better actor.
One odd thing though about the official announcement is nothing was said about Cage’s own show that is also supposed to be on Netflix as well. Conspiracy theorists can have a ball on that one.
But I can’t wait to see Colter as Cage.
Also, a note to the producers, if he doesn’t at least once say “Sweet Christmas,” I’m going to be severely ticked off.
