Updates for one of Marvel’s anticipated television series, “Luke Cage” have finally been released. New still shots from the shoot have just been unveiled. Interestingly, the cast of the show shared more details on the probable release date of the series.
Netflix kicked off the television series adaptation of “Luke Cage” from the original Marvel comics in September 2016. By December, Netflix revealed a sweet and short message, announcing that they have renewed the said series for a second season. No further details have been released until yesterday when teasers were shown.
Filming for “Luke Cage” Season 2 has finally started and the production made sure to let the fans know. Marvel released still shots from the filming set, revealing hints of what to expect in the next installment. The numerous shots included one of Luke wearing his signature hoodie with a front design that reads African American College Alliance.
The rest of the stills, which were nine photos, featured Claire Temple and Luke who are obviously out on a romantic date, wearing fancy suit and dress. These teasers clearly show that the relationship between Claire and Luke will be stronger than the first season. With “The Defenders” airing before “Luke Cage” Season 2, this scene points out that Luke teaming up again with ex-beau Jessica Jones will not do anything to destroy what he have with Claire.
Mike Colter, who plays the role of Luke, already revealed beforehand that filming is expected to start this month and it seems like everything is right on schedule. Ted Sarandos, chief content officer for Netflix, revealed that they have slated “Luke Cage” Season 2 to air early next air. While fans wait for the second season, they can look forward to the debut of Marvel’s “The Defenders” that is scheduled to release on Aug. 18.
