They better use either Vanilla Ice or Marky Mark & the Funky Bunch songs if they don't want me to boycott.

I'm digging the more enthusiastic side to Luke Cage.

Same here. Season 1 he was good, but lacking in charisma/fun. Almost, too uptight.

Yeah the announcement trailer was eh

But Ive always said Coulter is not that good of an actor. At least not good enough to carry a show. And it's made even more clear when they write Cage with little personality and kinda corny.

I do like the more enthusiastic side of the character though. I know these Netflix shows are darker, but I would love one that is not so much "woe is me"

He seems Okay. No one was expecting Idris Elba type acting, but he's def more than just a pretty looking guy who can take a punch.

can you list why his acting doesn't seem to impress you?

My issue with Colter before the first season was released was that in the footage we saw he NEVER came across like a guy from Harlem, let alone the Luke Cage from the comics. But once you start watching the series you realize this version of Luke Cage isn't from Harlem, so at that point you kinda gotta let it slide IMO.

The way Colter acts in the teaser is closer to what Luke is in the comics, but I'm guessing that' just Luke acting that way because he's filming a commercial or something.

Meh. I think Colter is a good actor and Luke is the most likable of all the Defenders imo. I don't necessarily need him to be fun or funny or cocky. Again, I don't mind if he's written a little lighter or with a bit more swag but he is good, as is, for me.

I always hate this kind of defense.

We've gotten great performances in the Netflix MCU alone. I wasn't expecting the greatest thing ever or even "Idris Elba type" acting, but I was expecting better.

Whether he's like Cage from the comics or not, I don't care. He doesn't read lines well, he doesn't seem natural, and he doesn't have a lot of charisma.

It could be the way he's written, but I've seen him written by the writers of JJ, Defenders, and LC. Not to mention his smaller turn in Girls Trip. Every time he's been the weak link the cast to me.

He's not an awful actor, I just don't think he's a leading man. Especially for a cable show

It's fine if he's not like the comics. I'm not the biggest fan of Cage from the comics, but they could give him something more of a personality.

Nightshade. She's one of the villains, that is...I'm sure there are others. Unfortunately Diamondback probably shows back up.

I was joking before about Vanilla Ice, of course. The real answer is Pete Rock & CL Smooth: http://www.complex.com/pop-culture/2...l-smooth-songs

I am sure Shades and Mariah will be back, as well. Do we REALLY need Diamondback, LOL!!! For me, he is the worst MCU villain to date. Period. Film or TV. Just awful

John McIver (Bushmaster/Power Master) and Nightshade are the new villains.

The confirmed returning villains are Black Mariah, Shades and Comanche.

It likely won't since it has actual antagonists and we already got the family dynamic with Diamondback.

Do you have something specific in mind or just in the sense that you didn't like it? If it's spoilers for Jessica Jones, put it in spoiler code.

I hate this trope where writers push the characters further away from one another for this or that reason.

But mostly it was the

I can't speak for whether the characters would get pushed away from each other (who did you have in mind? Luke and Claire?). As for the other one, I seriously doubt that'll come up in Luke Cage. There's no reason to think it would.

It's a lame trope and they really didn't need it for a character that automatically pushes people away.

I guess I just worry LC season 2 is gonna suffer from all the probs of recent Marvel shows. Utterly terrible at worst (Iron Fist) or massively underwhelming (The defenders).

I thought The Punisher was good, but massively overhyped. But I feel that the writers seem to think highly of the show, so they won't do anything too crazy to shake things up, but continue with a winning formula.

The Sopranos alum Annabella Sciorra has signed on to the Season 2 cast of Marvel’s Luke Cage on Netflix.

Sciorra will play Rosalie Carbone, a dangerous downtown criminal underworld power player with an eye, and an agenda, toward Harlem. She joins returning cast including, Mike Colter (Luke Cage), Simone Missick (Misty Knight), Alfre Woodard (Mariah Dillard), and Theo Rossi (Hernan ‘Shades’ Alvarez).

In Marvel’s Luke Cage, after clearing his name, Luke Cage (Colter) has become a celebrity on the streets of Harlem with a reputation as bulletproof as his skin. But being so well known has only increased the pressure he feels to protect the community. With the rise of a formidable new foe, Luke is forced to confront the fine line that separates a hero from a villain.

Best known for her Emmy-nominated performance as Gloria Trillo in HBO’s The Sopranos, Sciorra’s other credits include leading roles in Spike Lee’s Jungle Fever and Curtis Hanson’s The Hand That Rocks The Cradle. She received an Independent Spirit Award nomination for Best Female Lead in Nancy Savoca’s True Love and can next be seen recurring in Season 2 of Netflix’s G.L.O.W.

“I’ve been a huge fan of hers since Spike Lee’s Jungle Fever, and Anabella Sciorra is no joke as Rosalie Carbone,” said series Executive Producer and Showrunner, Cheo Hodari Coker. “You haven’t seen her this gangster since her thrilling turn as Tony’s formidable flame Gloria Trillo on Season Three of The Sopranos. I’m thrilled her introduction to the Marvel Universe will be on Marvel’s Luke Cage.”

Marvel’s Luke Cage is executive produced by series showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker, along with Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory.

“We couldn’t be happier to be working with such an incredible talent,” added Jeph Loeb, series Executive Producer and Marvel’s Head of Television. “This character is complex and layered and Annabella is the perfect actress to portray her.”

Interesting that they choose old Punisher villain Rosalie Carbone.

John McIver got the name Bushamster in the comics for very un-PG reasons

They weren't in Punisher, JJ Season 2 and likely won't be in Luke Cage. That's a minimum of three seasons without them showing up.
