PLZ Explain...Luke Cage!
Okay, so Netflix has been setting up a Defenders show for some time, but they have been doing it piece by piece (rather brilliantly, I mighty add). Starting with the most famous of the four, Daredevil, they set the tone for the Devil’s Kitchen Defenders. After everyone loved Daredevil, they brought us the stellar Jessica Jones. On her show, she was smitten with a man named Luke Cage. That sets up the Luke Cage show which we are getting next, as seen below.
And THEN, the Luke Cage show will set us up for the Netflix Iron Fist show, and all will be set up perfectly. But this leaves many asking the same questions (especially non comic book fans). Who is Luke Cage and who is Iron Fist? Well, we can help answer the first one, with the help of Screenjunkies:
Jessica Jones actually did a fantastic job of setting up Luke Cage’s world and making us like him already, so seems like fan base comes built in with territory at this point, which is cool. As far as Iron Fist goes, you are just gonna have to wait a little longer for that one. We will explain him when his show drops, too. Don’t worry. Long story short, he is white ninja dude that works awesomely beside Luke Cage.
Netflix keeps doing this right, we are in for another treat.
