With Jessica Jones having recently dropped on Netflix, and with the second season of filming for Daredevil also well under way, eyes have recently been turning to the next in the series of Netflix/Marvel properties, that being Luke Cage, and according to ComicBook.com, Mike Colter had much to say about how Luke Cage will differentiate itself from the darkness of Daredevil, and the noir of Jessica Jones.
“Luke Cage is going to have soul, it’s going to have intensity, it’s going to have dark parts to it. 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 Jones. 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. 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.”
He also teased that there is still a possibility of seeing Cage in his classic yellow shirt look.
“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.”
Luke Cage premieres on Netflix in 2016.
