Mike Colter was confirmed as Luke Cage back in December, and since then, we haven’t heard much from him regarding the role. Thankfully, while sitting down with The List to promote Halo: Nightfall, Colter revealed what little he could about Luke Cage.

When asked if he felt that working on Halo: Nightfall
helped him land the role of Luke Cage, he had this to say:

It couldn’t have hurt. And I really wanted the opportunity to do another physical role as there are only so many years you can do this kind of stuff.

When asked what he could say about the Luke Cage series on Netflix, Colter revealed what little he could:

Marvel actually gives you a special training class in how not to say too much in interviews [laughs]. We’re in the middle of shooting AKA Jessica Jones and Luke Cage is a very interesting character who just happens to have super strength and unbreakable skin. He’s a neighbourhood hero, very much linked to New York and Jessica Jones. It’s all part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe but Luke Cage is a darker, grittier, more tangible character than Iron Man or Thor. He likes to keep things close to his chest, operate on the hush-hush. He has these abilities but he’s not sure how and when to use them. He’s a very nuanced character.

And, as expected, when asked what he’ll be working on next, Colter revealed that his role as Luke Cage would be taking up a lot of his time. Colter will be leading the Luke Cage series once he finishes filming A.K.A. Jessica Jones. After that, assuming Iron Fist is still the third series, I’d expect him to pop up over there before moving onto Luke Cage, but that hasn’t been confirmed as of right now.

A.K.A. Jessica Jones, which Mike Colter will co-star in as Luke Cage, is set to premire on Netflix later this year.
