Following the success of the hit Marvel and Netflix series Daredevil, comic book fans are very excited to see what is going to happen with the new, upcoming Marvel series Jessica Jones later in the year. As well as that, we are also going to get a Luke Cage series hitting Netflix in 2016, with the character set to appear in an episode or two of Jessica Jones before hand.
Actor Mike Colter plays the role of Luke Cage, while actress Krysten Ritter is playing Jessica Jones, and Mike has been talking about playing the Marvel character. The talented actor has teased fans about what they can expect to see when Luke Cage and Jessica Jones come together on the small screen.
Colter "We talk about realism and what we can do and less is more and stuff like that and being grounded. For me it was the table saw moment for Cage at the end of [episode] two, this moment where you’re like, you show your power but in a subtle way in a sense but it’s so effective and then it’s just a moment, it’s like this thing where you’re like –Because what’s great about what they’re doing is like we’re discovering, especially for Cage, he’s discovering this power as you see him, he doesn’t know what he can do."
He added, "And so he has the power, he doesn’t know what he can do, so he knows some things, he doesn’t know everything. So you’ll find that out as it goes, that’s what’s cool, that moment of like, “I know I can do this and this is what I’m gonna show you right now that’ll let you know…” you know. But it’s a movie moment, it’s one of those things where you’re like, “I’m unbreakable.” This is that moment and then what does that mean? All that stuff. So that was that moment where we shot that, I remember we were rushing to get it shot but it turned out a cool moment."
We cannot wait to see whether Jessica Jones and Luke Cage can live up to the success that Daredevil brought us. Watch this space!
