Colter will introduce Luke Cage as the male lead in A.K.A. Jessica Jones before the character headlines the third in Marvel’s four-series package for Netflix, which also includes a miniseries conclusion.
After a tragic ending to her short-lived superhero stint, Jessica Jones is rebuilding her personal life and career as a detective who gets pulled into cases involving people with extraordinary abilities. During the course of an investigation in New York City, Jones encounters the enigmatic Luke Cage – a man whose past has secrets that will dramatically alter Jessica in ways she could never have imagined.
“Mike embodies the strength, edge and depth of Luke Cage,” said A.K.A. Jessica Jones executive producer/showrunner Melissa Rosenberg. Added Marvel’s head of TV Jeph Loeb, “Viewers will get to meet Luke Cage in Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones and experience why he is such an important superhero in the Marvel mythos.”
Colter, repped by Gersh and Silver Lining Entertainment, was seen in American Horror Story: Coven and stars as Jameson Locke on the XBox web series Halo: Nightfall.
