Production is already underway on the second season of Netflix’s Luke Cage, and the first look gives us something comic fans have been clamoring for since the pilot episode. If you read the comics, you’re really going to like this.
Entertainment Weekly has debuted the first pic from Season 2 shows Misty Knight (Simone Missick) and Luke Cage (Mike Colter), with Misty sporting one heck of a cool bionic arm. Misty lost her arm at the end of The Defenders miniseries, but dropped a set-up for Danny Rand (Finn Jones) to spend a whole lot of money to develop her a replacement. Well, it looks like all that cash paid off.
Her bionic arm isn’t quite as metallic as the comic version is typically portrayed, but it does allow her to still hold a gun, so it certainly looks functional.
As comic fans are well aware, Misty has been sporting a metal arm for years, which she uses to kick all kinds of butt. When she showed up in Season 1 of Luke Cage, fans were curious if we’d ever see the robo-arm. Well, you’ve got to respect Marvel’s commitment to the canon — and we can’t wait to see this thing in action.
Season 2 of Luke Cage hits Netflix in 2018.
