Apparently this led to calls for changes in the creative head of the show, which split Netflix and Marvel along irreconcilable lines - for Luke Cage at least. "We must fight to save our hero of Harlem as he fights for us". Mike broke his silence on the matter Sunday, writing on Instagram, "Luke Cage represented something more than just entertainment".
Luke Cage season 2 features a cast that includes Mike Colter (Luke Cage), Simone Missick (Misty Knight), Rosario Dawson (Claire Temple), Alfre Woodard (Mariah Dillard), Theo Rossi (Shades), Finn Jones (Iron Fist), Jessica Henwick (Colleen Wing), Thomas Q. Jones (Comanche), Gabrielle Dennis (Tilda Johnson), Mustafa Shakir (John McIver/Bushmaster), Reg E. Cathey (James Lucas) and Anabella Sciorra (Rosalie Carbone).
So what happened here?
Petitions to bring back both Iron Fist and Luke Cage have surfaced since the two shows were cancelled. The song, "King's Paradise", produced by Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad who are also the show's music supervisors, name drops Harlem greats like Malcolm X, Louis Armstrong, Lena Horne and the show's titular character Luke Cage. Don't be surprised if that stays that way and Daredevil and The Punisher joins the rest on the cancellation heap next year. Luke Cage loyals have taken to social media in droves to express their disappointment, outrage, and heartache over the series' cancellation. I swear to God, we'd better hear something about a Heroes for Hire series like, YESTERDAY. The news came one week after it pulled the plug on its sister show, Marvel's Iron Fist. Netflix was the ideal venue for their darker, more violent offerings, and they won't be brought in-house to Disney without some serious nerfing.
