Mike Colter Gives Info on Luke Cage’s Time Frame and Location. Luke Cage will be first introduced in next month’s Jessica Jones, but there is so little that we know about him. However, Mike Colter did give some juicy details on where and when his new solo series takes place.
Mike Colter gave up some details to ComicBook.com about where and when next year’s Luke Cage will be set in. So it appears that Luke Cage will be moving from Hell’s Kitchen to Harlem in the new series and it will take place sometime after Jessica Jones. Colter also gave some clues as to what Cage’s mindset would be when we find him on his own and what makes him become the hero we all know.
I can tell you what they’ve allowed me to, which is basically, Luke Cage will take place a few months after Jessica Jones. So in real time, if you watch Jessica Jones, you’ll find [at the end] Luke Cage uptown in Harlem, working, trying to make ends meet. Luke Cage really hasn’t figured out what he’s doing. He’s tending bar, he’s bouncing around. And for good reason, he’s a fugitive, he has some skeletons in his closet. He’s trying to basically stay off the radar. The people he hangs around with, though, are in need. Ultimately, he’d rather be alone, but with the way he’s equipped he does step up. That’s what it’s about, it’s about finding that inner feeling to make you want to take action. Sometimes we just sit around, and sit on our hands and don’t do anything because it’s like ‘hey, that’s not my problem.’ You can’t do that when you’re a superhero. You have these gifts, now use them.
What do you guys think of the new location and time frame for Luke Cage? Expect the new series to air sometime in 2016.
