Filming on the New York City set of Marvel and Netflix’s upcoming superhero series Luke Cage is going roundly, and a bunch of new photos have made their way online.

The new pics give us a first look at Simone Missick as Marvel Comics character Misty Knight, Frank Whaley as Detective Scarfe and Alfre Woodard as Mariah Dillard. Back for an encore is Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple (the character was first introduced on Marvel’s Daredevil and was last seen in the Jessica Jones Season 1 finale) and Mike Colter’s Luke Cage. The photos show a variety of scenes featuring our hero and the rest of the cast, and may hint at a grim fate for one of the characters, so *SPOILERS*.

Colter is following up on his powerful performance (pun intended) as the future Hero for Hire on Jessica Jones. I don't know about y'all, but I thought he embodied the character of Luke Cage quite well ... so much so that it has considerably amped up my level of excitement for his own series. Here's the premise:

When a sabotaged experiment gives him super strength and unbreakable skin, Luke Cage becomes a fugitive attempting to rebuild his life in Harlem and must soon confront his past and fight a battle for the heart of his city.

Check out the new set pics below, and let us know what you think.

Luke Cage is set to stream sometime in 2016. Are you looking forward to the Hero for Hire's very own series?
