Ever since actress Simone Missick was confirmed to be playing Misty Knight in the upcoming Luke Cage series, fans have been eagerly awaiting any news regarding the possibility of her character sporting her trademark bionic arm. Unfortunately, as the show is still a little over two months away, the gang involved with the series isn’t entirely willing to drop that answer officially just yet. That, of course, hasn’t stopped various outlets from trying to get the actress to answer the question in recent interviews.
While attending SDCC to promote Luke Cage yesterday, Missick stopped by the IGN booth along with Marvel Television head Jeph Loeb and Luke Cage co-star Frank Whaley (Detective Scarfe) and decided to give IGN the “exclusive” regarding her character’s bionic arm. When asked if we’d get to see Misty sport her famous arm in Luke Cage, the actress responded by saying ‘next year’. This isn’t entirely too surprising. After all, the Netflix shows tend to take time with their characters, spending the entire season evolving them into the character fans have come to love thanks to the comics. Still, here’s to hoping we do, in fact, get to see Misty sport her famous arm at some point. (Come on, Marvel!)
