Luke Cage: Mike Colter Hopes Season 2 Will Cover The Character’s Very Public Identity

10 hours ago | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Every one of the Defenders has had his or her own set of very real problems in the Marvel Netflix universe. However, in one aspect, Luke Cage stands alone. Daredevil uses a mask to hide his identity; Jessica Jones doesn’t exactly hide her powers, but she’s managed to make it work without being noticed; and despite being a millionaire and telling everyone under the sun that he’s the Iron Fist, Danny Rand doesn’t exactly have the public eye falling on him about being said Iron Fist

However, as a citizen of Harlem and a begrudging hero, Luke Cage has become something of a role model and icon of many folks. The climax of the last season of Luke Cage, we saw a very public street brawl between him and the big bad of the series, and even following the events of The Defenders, there’s no »

The New Mutants: Rosario Dawson In Talks To Join X-Men Spinoff?

25 May 2017 4:15 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Right now, the X-Men Cinematic Universe is at a bit of a crossroads. After concluding the secondary trilogy of their series with X-Men: Apocalypse last year, they were left with countless opportunities. No longer are they restricted to making standard superhero films. Last year’s Deadpool and this year’s Logan have proven that the only constraints they have are the constraints they put on themselves. So long as the films are strong, audiences have proven they are willing to pay their ticket to see the work they put out.

It seems to us that they’re continuing with this trend of the unexpected. Earlier today, we reported on the fact that one of the upcoming X-Men spinoffs, The New Mutants, would be a full-on horror, as opposed to the Ya film we were pitched months ago. However, that wasn’t the only interesting piece of news in that report. »

Sigourney Weaver Describes Her Villainous Character In The Defenders As A Renaissance Woman

25 May 2017 6:46 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist finally unite on Netflix for The Defenders, it can only be in response to a very significant threat. Individually, they’ve each faced down a variety of foe – from Wilson Fisk, to Kilgrave, to Mariah Dillard – so it’s with great anticipation that fans await the unveiling of the villainous character played by the legendary Sigourney Weaver, “Alexandra.”

Nerdist recently asked Weaver about her The Defenders character, as she attended the opening of Pandora: The World Of Avatar at Animal Kingdom – and the actress managed to give a detailed answer, while revealing very little of any great consequence.

“I know I play sometimes, like the warden in Holes is a villain, but I don’t do it very often and I never really think of them like that. To them, it always comes out of something. They can’t see things »

Sigourney Weaver’s Alexandra is “a renaissance woman” in Marvel’s The Defenders

25 May 2017 1:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While we have seen an official trailer for Netflix’s upcoming The Defenders series, we still don’t know that much about Alexandra, the mysterious villain being portrayed by Sigourney Weaver. Just who is she?

Recently, the actress sat down for an interview with Nerdist, where she discussed what pulls her to certain villainous characters, and what specifically makes Alexandra tick:

When asked about the psychology of the villains she chooses to play, Weaver states: “To them, it always comes out of something. They can’t see things the way the normal person sees them, they’re still trying to complete something for themselves.”

The outlet then asked her how a woman like Alexandra sees the world, to which the actress replied: “I do think: she’s a renaissance woman. I think yes, she has to do these things but she really… she loves life, she loves culture. It’s »

Iron Fist star Finn Jones explains how The Defenders will influence Danny Rand

22 May 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We are closer than ever to seeing the Marvel/Netflix Universe unite in the form of The Defenders. Aside from Daredevil, every other team member has only had one season so far, and so there’s still a lot for the individual heroes to learn as they continue their crimefighting careers. How will The Defenders change its key players, for better, or worse? Well, according to Finn Jones, his character Danny Rand, at least, will learn quite a bit.

Speaking to CinemaBlend, the Iron Fist actor describes how being exposed to other superheroes will influence his character:

“The thing [with] Danny is that we’re taking an ordinary kid with a lot of issues and we’re trying to iron those out first before getting to Danny as Iron Fist. And what we’ll [see] in Defenders is Danny coming to terms with being a superhero. In the Defenders when he first starts, »

Finn Jones says The Defenders “takes place over a couple of days”

20 May 2017 4:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Defenders stars Finn Jones and Mike Colter were in attendance at Houston’s Comicpalooza last weekend, during which Jones revealed that the story for the hotly-anticipated Marvel team-up series will unfold over a couple of days.

“It takes place in a very short amount of time,” said Jones (via McU Exchange). “It’s 8 episodes but it takes place over a couple of days. So it has this real-time frenetic energy to it which I think adds to the impending doom. So we’re all kind of brought together not through choice, but through necessity. We don’t want to work with each other but our backs are against the wall and we kind of have to.”

This differs from the previous solo series, which have spanned weeks and even months across their thirteen episodes, and have sometimes felt a little drawn out pacing-wise as a result.

Luke Cage #1 Review

Luke Cage #1 Gallery 1 of 9   

Click to skip

More From The Web Click to zoom 

With Mike Colter’s version of the character about to team up with Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist in Netflix’s The Defenders this summer, it’s the perfect time for Marvel to give Luke Cage his own solo series once again. The Hero of Harlem’s adventures have got a lot bigger and bolder over the years, but this series promises to return Luke to his more down-to-earth roots. With his wife and daughter nowhere in sight, the opening issue hits the ground running with that mission statement, as it’s full of pure Power Man goodness.

In Luke Cage #1, Cage leaves New York behind for New Orleans, to attend the funeral of Dr. Noah Burstein – the man who gave him his unbreakable skin. Whilst there, the Hero for Hire discovers that Burstein repeated »

Mike Colter Accidentally Confirms A Character's Return In The Defenders

17 May 2017 10:51 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Two years ago Marvel launched it's first Netflix series Daredevil, starring Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page and Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson. With an overwhelming positive response, the studio soon also launched Jessica Jones starring Krysten Ritter as Jessica, Rachel Taylor as Trish Walker and David Tennant as Kilgrave. In that series was the introduction to Luke Cage who is played by Mike Colter, who soon debuted in his own series. Finally, this year we got Iron Fist, starring Finn Jones as Danny Rand and Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing. The reason we are taking this trip down memory lane is that these characters are now set to come together in August in a new Netflix series The Defenders.

Thanks to the trailer for The Defenders we know that Elektra Natchios, played by Elodie Yung, and Claire Temple played by Rosairo Dawson will also be back for the series. »

Luke Cage: Mike Colter Targeting June Start Date, Early 2018 Premiere For Season 2

16 May 2017 1:52 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Between the breathless nature of Marvel’s output, coupled with the sheer number of superhero projects incubating in various stages of development, it seems that we’re never too far away from another property stepping before the cameras. One door opening just as another closes, if you will – or in the case of Mike Colter’s Power Man, one door being ripped from its hinges and used as a makeshift weapon.

Marvel’s Hero for Hire will be back, back, back in a few months’ time thanks to the arrival of The Defenders, Netflix’s team-up series that will have him reluctantly join forces with Daredevil, Iron Fist, and Jessica Jones to safeguard NYC from The Hand and Sigourney Weaver’s mysterious Alexandra.

It lays the foundations for a truly epic dust-up between The Defenders and their common enemy, but the Battle for New York will surely spill over into »

Trailer For New X-Men Series The Gifted Is Here!

15 May 2017 10:30 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Earlier this year, FX and Marvel worked together to bring the incredibly unique series Legion to FX. The series followed David Haller, who may very well be the most powerful mutant known to man. The show isn’t your typical superhero show, and if you were looking for something less abstract and artsy, you may have been disappointed. However, if you are one of those people, then this new mutant-centric series from Fox, The Gifted, may be more up your alley.

Last week, we got a first look at the upcoming network show (the pilot of which is directed by longtime X-Men helmer Bryan Singer), and today, they released a full trailer, and we have to say, it’s not half bad. Oftentimes with television shows — even with the best ones — we’re left with cheesy, silly-looking trailers that aren’t quite clear about stating their premise. Given the limited »

Marvel’s Private Eye Swings By Chikara Dojo In Another Pair Of Motion Posters For The Defenders

15 May 2017 9:59 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Marvel and Netflix’s promotional blitz for The Defenders continues to motor along at a brisk clip, and over the weekend the show’s official Twitter account unveiled not one, but two neon-drenched motion posters featuring Chikara Dojo and Harlem’s Paradise.

The former is, of course, a martial-arts school located in NYC, one in which Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick) educates budding fighters on the deft art of hand-to-hand combat. It’s seemingly piqued the curiosity of Jessica Jones, as down below you’ll find Krysten Ritter’s private eye scoping out the scene. On the other hand, the second motion poster places Danny Rand (Aka the Iron Fist) outside Harlem’s Paradise, and it seems Finn Jones’ billionaire didn’t make the guest list.

Harlem’s Paradise proved to be a fixture of Luke Cage‘s inaugural season. Formerly owned by Cottonmouth, the ensuing death of Mahershala Ali’s »

Bryan Singer’s Dysfunctional X-Men Family Takes Center Stage In New Images For The Gifted

15 May 2017 8:23 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though it’s never quite hit the dizzying box office heights of, say, Captain America: Civil War or even Suicide Squad, Fox’s X-Men universe is currently bursting at the seams with content, and it wasn’t too long ago that the studio nailed down release plans for three of its biggest 2018 tentpoles: Deadpool 2, New Mutants and X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

Those ambitious plans are about to spill over on to the small screen, too, via The Gifted, Bryan Singer and Matt Nix’s star-studded family drama that thrusts two ordinary parents (Amy Acker, Stephen Moyer) into extraordinary circumstances upon discovering that their two teenagers – namely Lauren (Gotham’s Natalie Alyn Lind) and Andy (Percy Hynes White) – boast mutant abilities.

What follows is a desperate fight for survival, as Acker and Moyer’s parents are forced to go on the run from shady government forces in order to protect their nearest and dearest. »

14 May 2017 11:48 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Here’s the official synopsis as provided by Fox.

Marvel Debuts First Full Trailer For Upcoming X-Men TV Show The Gifted

14 May 2017 9:36 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fox is aggressively growing their X-Men cinematic universe, and after the massive success of films like Logan and Deadpool, it’s easy to see why. With projects such as New Mutants, X-Force, X-Men: Dark Phoenix and Deadpool 2 all cramming up the pipeline, there’s certainly a lot to look forward to for fans of the franchise, but it’s not only on the big screen that the mutants are popping up.

The studio’s been making the push into television as well, and after premiering the excellent Legion earlier this year, they’re now looking to bring us yet another X-Men show in the form of The Gifted. How exactly it’ll tie into the films is still unclear, but there is expected to be some kind of connection and from what we understand, the series centres on a suburban couple (Amy Acker, Stephen Moyer) who discover that their children possess mutant abilities. »

Mutants Unite in Official Trailer for New Fox Series The Gifted

New Defenders Motion Poster Drops Iron Fist Into Luke Cage’s Territory

12 May 2017 3:50 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Following on from the recent motion posters starring Luke Cage and Jessica Jones, the latest bit of promotional material for The Defenders to arrive online features Danny Rand Aka Iron Fist in a new (for him, anyways) location.

The concept behind these motion posters is that they drop the Defenders into a setting tied to one of their teammates. For instance, Luke’s found him at Josie’s Bar, usually frequented by Matt Murdock and friends, while Jessica Jones was shown sitting outside Pop’s Barber Shop (later owned by Luke).

The Iron Fist edition sees “the kung-fu billionaire” caught outside Harlem’s Paradise, the bustling nightclub where Luke’s enemies Cottonmouth, Mariah Dillard and Diamondback did their business. The official Twitter account for The Defenders unveiled the motion poster with a tongue-in-cheek caption poking fun at Danny for not being able to get into the club.

Kung-fu billionaire, still can't get on the list. »

Shades Will Return In Luke Cage Season 2

12 May 2017 8:30 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Disclaimer: This post contains spoilers for Luke Cage Season 1.

You never know when someone may pop up in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. That’s both a good and bad thing. It’s nice knowing that when a character walks away that you may very well find them walking into the story of another character. However, the flip side to that is that it doesn’t absolutely guarantee that they’ll show up in the most natural of ways. For instance, it’s not guaranteed that a character in Daredevil will show up in Daredevil Season 3 — they may instead show up in Iron Fist Season 2 or The Defenders.

With that in mind, even though Season 1 of Luke Cage ended with Shades and Mariah walking off together, now representing the new power couple of Harlem, it doesn't necessarily mean they'd show up next season. Sure, it would make sense that the pair »
