As Marvel gears up to go into production on the second season of the Netflix show Luke Cage, actor Theo Rossi has confirmed that he’ll be returning alongside Mike Colter’s Power Man as he reprises the role of the villain Shades.
“Now that I’m on Netflix with Marvel, and to be on the number one show on Netflix in Luke Cage, it’s like cable television 2.0,” Rossi told Parade. “I’ve been very lucky and very fortunate in my decisions and in the people who wanted me to be with them with things like Sons of Anarchy and Luke Cage… I honestly couldn’t ask to be in a better situation with the caliber of people I’m around. Walking on the streets that I skateboarded in and ran around doing graffiti in, it’s a pretty incredible feeling. There’s a memory on every street, on every block, and I get to be close to my family. It’s all perfect. Luke Cage is going down, [we’re in] season two. We’re pretty excited, it’ll be nice to get back into the swing.”
So far, details on the second season of Luke Cage are virtually non-existent, but we have had a rumoured casting breakdown which reportedly revealed two new characters.
