Mike Colter Reveals Premiere Date for Netflix’s Luke Cage

It’s official! Luke Cage will be premiering on Netflix on September 30th, 2016 as, um, the character revealed on his official Twitter feed.

Even better, the man behind Luke Cage, series star Mike Colter, first revealed the premiere date at the recent red carpet premiere of Daredevil Season 2! Check out the proceedings in the video below (Colter appears around the 2:10 minute mark):

Colter says of Netflix’s Luke Cage:

It’s going to be action-packed, from beginning to the very end. Trust me. Daredevil premieres March 18, and I will see the fans on September 30th. You heard it here first.

Sweet Christmas! Colter has already been amazing playing the character on Jessica Jones, so we’re all very excited to see what he can do at the head of his own show. Interesting too is that the Luke Cage Twitter hashtags #Harlem, so I’m curious as to whether the show will take place entirely uptown, or if Cage will ever saunter back down past Central Park and give Hell’s Kitchen a visit every now and again.

Regardless, with Daredevil and Jessica Jones getting second seasons and Luke Cage on the horizon, this is going to be a great year for Marvel television.

What are you looking forward to most about Luke Cage? Any storylines or characters from the comics that you hope make an appearance? What crossovers do you hope happen? Let’s talk Netflix Marvel shows below!
