Rosario Dawson’s Claire Temple (the Night Nurse) continues her streak of appearing in all of Marvel/Netflix’s connected street-level hero shows. She shouldn’t have much patching up to do with Luke Cage being invulnerable, but her experience as a voice of reason for vigilantes could come in handy to Cage as he starts on the path of trying to be a hero. We’ll have to wait to see if any sparks fly between the two.
One thing fans of Luke Cage weren’t expecting to see was his classic ’70s look from the comics. But we get a nice tease in the trailer during a flashback scene to the moment experiments were completed on Cage. He comes out of a tank with steel gauntlets and a tiara on his head. It’s a nice wink to fans who know that look won’t cut it in a modern adaptation, but for a split-second, it’s there.
After making his debut as Luke Cage in “Jessica Jones” last year, Colter now gets to try being a solo hero in his own series before an eventual Avengers-like team-up. Once Finn Jones debuts in Marvel/Netflix’s “Iron Fist” later this year, all four of Marvel/Netflix’s superheroes will join forces to form “The Defenders” in 2017.
