Misty Knight gets her bionic arm in first look at Luke Cage Season 2
Marvel Entertainment and Netflix have released an official first look image for the upcoming second season of Marvel’s Luke Cage (via EW) and confirmed that Simone Missick’s Misty Knight will finally be getting her trademark bionic arm in the series! Check it out in the gallery below.
Misty’s arm was lost during the long awaited Defenders mini-series and its replacement was teased in the series. In the pages of Marvel comics, Misty’s arm comes to her from Tony Stark but given the walled off nature of these Netflix shows it remains to be seen where it will originate from. Perhaps Danny Rand, who offered to pay for her hospital bills, will be responsible for it since Misty is also scheduled to appear in season 2 of Marvel’s Iron Fist.
Mike Colter returns as the titular Luke Cage, with Simone Missick as Misty Knight, Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple, Alfre Woodard as Mariah Dillard, and Theo Rossi as Shades. Newcomers to the series so far include Mustafa Shakir (The Deuce, The Night Of) as John McIver, a natural leader, brimming with charisma, whose mission is focused on Harlem and vengeance; and Gabrielle Dennis (Insecure, Rosewood) as Tilda Johnson, a brilliant, holistic doctor with a complicated history in Harlem where, as much as she tries to stay far from trouble, it seems to always find her.
Marvel’s Luke Cage is Executive Produced by Cheo Hodari Coker (Ray Donovan, Southland) and Aïda Croal (The Returned, True Blood) is Co-Executive Producer, along with Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory.
Luke Cage can next be seen in Marvel’s The Defenders, debuting on August 18. Marvel’s Luke Cage will return in 2018.
