Iron Fist star Finn Jones may not have given up hope of following in the footsteps of Charlie Cox by reprising his Netflix role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe proper, but his fellow Defender and Hero for Hire Mike Colter isn’t expecting to get the call about a Luke Cage return.
“I just try to stay in reasonable shape just because, but I don’t think about Luke Cage opportunities,” Colter told ComicBook while promoting his new film, the Gerard Butler action team-up Plane [read our review here]. “It’s one of those things where it’s in the rear view mirror at this point. If somehow I get a call, my dance card is kind of full. But if I get a call, something happens, great.
“I had a good time. I’m happy, more than happy, to let someone else take on that mantle or that role. That character’s living on for a long time. Fans are going to have that character in one way, shape, or form for the rest of their lives, and I’m happy to have been a part of that for those guys.”
Colter made his debut as Luke Cage in Jessica Jones, before spinning off into his own two-season solo show, as well as The Defenders team-up series. At this point, there’s been very little in the way of rumours and reports about Marvel having any plans for the character, although he’ll sure be back on screen at some point in the future. If so, are you hoping to see Colter back in the role? Let us know on our social channels @FlickeringMyth…
