Netflix recently released a rather odd picture on Marvel's "Jessica Jones" Twitter page that showed a file folder with "Cage – November" written on it. As there was no other possible hint in the picture, several fans are assuming that it is the month when "Luke Cage" will finally be debuted on Netflix.
Though there has been no official confirmation either from Marvel or Netflix, Blackfilm has reported that the show might debut sometime in late summer this year.
Marvel's "Luke Cage" is the third Marvel show on Netflix. The other two are namely "Daredevil" that debuted last April and "Jessica Jones" that aired in November.
The second season of "Daredevil" is all set to debut in March and another season of "Jessica Jones" has also been confirmed, though the release date is not yet revealed.
At the TCA winter tour, Netflix's Ted Sarandos said that usually there is a gap of eight to 15 months between the debut of two shows. However, it might not be the case with "Luke Cage."
If "Luke Cage" gets a release date in August, it will be six months after "Daredevil" season 2. The first season of "Jessica Jones" was released seven months after "Daredevil," but there is a gap of only five months between the first season of "Jessica Jones" and "Daredevil" season 2.
"Luke Cage" follows the story of Luke Cage (Mike Colter) who, after a failed experiment, was left with super strength and unbreakable skin. Trying to rebuild his life in Harlem, New York City, Luke becomes a fugitive.
Soon, Luke finds himself in dark side of the city where he must fight to bring balance and more than anything else, bury his ever-haunting past forever.
Marvel's "Luke Cage is produced by Marvel Television and ABC Studio for Netflix. Rosario Dawson will reprise her role as Claire Temple a.k.a. Night Nurse from "Daredevil." Other cast members include Mahershala Ali as Cottonmouth, Theo Rossi as Sonny, Alfre Woodard as Black Mariah, Simone Missick as Misty Knight and Sonia Braga as Claire Temple's mother.
