When Marvel released Daredevil on Netflix earlier this year, one of the first characters we meet was Rob Morgan‘s Turk Barrett. Barrett was a low level gangster who encountered Daredevil, the Russian brothers, Wesley, and more. Last we saw of him however, he was getting arrested following the downfall of Wilson Fisk.
Apparently, we will be getting more of Barrett in the future. Blacklist.com is reporting they’ve learned that Rob Morgan will return in the first season of Luke Cage. Barrett has not been confirmed to return for season 2 of Daredevil, so it’s unclear what kind of role he will have. It could be flashbacks to being in prison with Cage perhaps or him eventually getting out and running into Cage in the present day.
Morgan seemed to confirm the report by Blacklist with the following tweet.
@Christosgage appreciate you my Brotha! You definitely called it out and made me feel welcomed from day one. Honored to work with you!

Luke Cage is rounding up an impressive recurring cast with the likes of Claire Temple, Barrett, another rumored Daredevil character, a rumored Jessica Jones character, and possibly Daredevil or Jessica Jones themselves.
Luke Cage is currently filming with it projected to hit Netflix in the summer/fall of 2016.
