As Marvel and Netflix are about to release their 2nd season for their first comic book series, Daredevil. Luke Cage is ramping up for a big debut of his own. During a red carpet even for the Daredevil premiere, Mike Colter a.k.a. Luke Cage announced that the third Marvel comic book series would be released this fall.
When asked about his character’s future, Colter said:
“Well, I’ll just say this. It’s going to be action-packed from the beginning to the very end. Trust me,” “Daredevil premieres March 18 and I will see the fans on September 30. You heard it here first.”
That’s exciting news for fans of the Marvel/Netflix series! September 30th makes total sense as a release date. With Season 2 of Daredevil premiering soon, it’s only natural that this series has the fall. That way, neither are competing with each other. Although, some were hoping it would be released around December. Sweet Christmas!
Luke Cage will be set in Harlem, as he tries to reboot his life, after the events of Jessica Jones. This series will be followed by Iron Fist and will ultimately end up in a team up for The Defenders, also on Netflix.
Are you looking forward to Luke Cage?
