The very first pics of Mike Colter as Luke Cage on the set of Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones have emerged. The actor was spotted riding a motorcycle -- and looking all kinds of cool -- while filming a scene with his co-star Krysten Ritter, who plays the titular badass heroine.
Getting a first look at Colter and Ritter together is pretty exciting, especially since two days ago we got our first look at David Tennant as the villainous Purple Man. We can really feel that this series is coming along nicely, and I can’t wait to see Ritter and Colter kicking ass when the upcoming Marvel series hits Netflix by the end of the year.
After starring on A.K.A. Jessica Jones, the Hero for Hire will then headline his own Netflix series set to hit the streaming service early next year. Probably around the same time that Daredevil was released. Then both Colter and Ritter will crash headlong into that other superhero team-up series: Marvel’s The Defenders, along with the Man Without Fear and Iron Fist. Check out the set pics.
After a tragic ending to her short-lived super hero stint, Jessica Jones is rebuilding her personal life and career as a detective who gets pulled into cases involving people with extraordinary abilities in New York City. Starring Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones), David Tennant (Kilgrave), with Mike Colter (Luke Cage), and Rachael Taylor (Patricia “Trish” Walker), and Carrie-Anne Moss, A.K.A Jessica Jonesis produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.
What do you guys think of Mike Colter’s look as Luke Cage? Does he look big enough to play the guy who was once Power Man?
