Well, I think they kinda had to do that so that people in Harlem don't know who he is. Though it does kind of require some suspension of disbelief over how his old enemies just happen to wind up there too.

I just finished the show and I loved Mike Colter's performance as Luke Cage. It's like he was born to play the role. He brought so much heart and humanity to the role of Luke, very convincingly portraying him as someone who just wants to do the right thing but also feels conflicted because he originally wanted to be left along, owing to his traumatic past in prison. Colter was extremely likable in the role and made you want to root for him all the way.

I liked Colter in the role as well. I thought he brought a lot of energy and heart to the role. I did think there were minutes where he kinda was eh, but overall I liked him as Cage. Think his best moment was during his origin story. Some good acting from him there.

Colter is solid as Luke Cage. I think he was a phenomenal choice & he's only gonna get better as time goes on.

And I'd definitely agree that his most impactful/emotional piece was his origin story. Brilliantly told & sold.

i wished he lifted a little more for the role. he naturally looks like a big dude, he'd probably look super huge if he worked out more

He's added 30+ lbs of muscle. I'm not sure what else you're expecting. He's the perfect size to be Luke Cage right now. He doesn't need to look like Ronnie Coleman.

i know he added 30 pounds, but he looks like he's certainly capable of adding even more weight on easy. i wanted him to look super dooper ripped. like that old spice guy. or christian bale in bb.

Eh, that's not necessary. Again, he's an actor, not a bodybuilder. His physique is fine as is.

Yeah, not sure you can make Colter even bigger. Look. Characters in comics generally have exaggerated bodies. Luke Cage isn't going to look as jacked as Brock Lesnar.

Is it just me or does Mike Colter look like the character Yul Brynner from the Disney movie Cool Runnings?
