Good news for Marvel fans this month as Marvel’s Luke Cage got renewed for season two on Netflix. Yes our favourite bullet proof, everything proof, hero is coming back and it’s going to be epic.
Marvel has been enjoying success on Netflix as their series’ have been taken up by storm, and not just by Marvel fans but by people who have no interest in comics. It started with Daredevil and now Luke Cage has been added to the mix. It gives smaller characters, smaller as in smaller than Thor or Captain America, the chance to debut on our television screens.
Luke Cage getting renewed is not just good for Marvel, but it’s good for people of colour too. Luke Cage is a show like Black-ish and Fresh off the Boat. It gives people of colour the chance to be represented in an accurate way. It gives a chance for our culture to be showcased and enjoyed in a respectful manner.
One of the biggest praises for Luke Cage season one was the soundtrack. The songs chosen and the artists that sang on the show gave it that smooth feel and vibe. It coloured the tone of the show for the better and put you in the mood to sit down, relax and enjoy the story. Hopefully season two will bring an even better soundtrack, if possible.
What else can we expect from season two? What is Luke Cage’s next step? Is he going to be Harlem again? Is he going to take on Mariah and Shades?
Is Misty going to be Luke Cage season two? Is Jessica Jones? Is Claire?
Who is going to be the villain? Are we going to have someone completely new or is he going to face the ones I mentioned above? The show could go any which way and we may see more crossovers as Iron Fist, Jessica Jones season 2 and The Defenders get made and join the Netflix family. Also, as the show is on Netflix it allows for more creative freedom.
2017 is looking to be a good year for TV and not just for film. What are you most looking forward to?
