The rumors were true: Mike Colter will play Luke Cage, aka Power Man in Marvel's AKA Jessica Jones. He'll then spin off into his own show, which for now we're calling Luke Cage but gosh I hope they go with Power Man.
What will the TV Luke Cage be like? Like this, says Marvel.com:
During the course of an investigation in New York City, private investigator Jessica Jones encounters the enigmatic Luke Cage – a man whose past has secrets that will dramatically alter Jessica in ways she could never have imagined.
They get married and have a kid is the ways. At least in the comics.
This press release confirms that AKA Jessica Jones will be a 2015 show, which means in 2015 you will see the following Marvel superheroes on a screen big or small:
Luke Cage, Power Man
Black Panther (maybe)
Captain Marvel (maybe)
And it seems possible we could get a cameo from Iron Fist at some point in 2015. These names, by the way, aren't counting characters who might show up on Agents of SHIELD (if it's still on) like Deathlok, or possible named Inhumans. And this isn't counting the villains who will be making their way to our various screens that year.
It's all pretty cool.
As for Colter: I've never seen him anything, or if I did I don't recall. He looks very sweet, though.
