“Well, I’ll just say this. It’s going to be action-packed from beginning to the very end,” Colter said. “Trust me. ‘Daredevil’ premieres March 18. And I will see the fans on Sept. 30.”

In a previous interview with The Times, Colter explained that “‘Luke Cage’ is going to have soul, it’s going to have intensity, it’s going to have dark parts to it.”

“I really feel like Luke Cage is a timely hero right now,” Colter said. “I feel like what we’re doing subtly — with the storytelling and how he is as a character — that’s going to be different than what you saw in ‘Jessica [Jones].’”


Colter also mentioned that music and locations would play a big part in the series.

“Luke Cage” will also feature Mahershala Ali as Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes, Simone Missick as Misty Knight and Alfre Woodard as Mariah Dillard and will also see Rosario Dawson reprise her “Daredevil” role as Claire Temple.
