Marvel’s Luke Cage may have found his match. I’ve learned that Alfre Woodard is finalizing a deal to star opposite Mike Colter in Luke Cage, the third series in Marvel’s four-series package at Netflix.
In Luke Cage, Mike Colter, who will be first introduced in the second Marvel series for Netflix, A.K.A. Jessica Jones, plays Cage, a wrongly accused man who, granted superstrength by a sabotaged experiment, escapes prison to become a superhero for hire.
Oscar nominee and Emmy winner Woodard, repped by ICM Partners and Circle of Confusion, recently co-starred on NBC’s State Of Affairs and recurred on TNT’s The Last Ship. She is currently seen in the feature Mississippi Grind.
