We start today with some much over due news. Ever since Marvel announced that they would be bringing Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist to Netflix all the news has been around Daredevil and Jessica Jones. Only season one of Daredevil has come out and lately all the news has been around season 2 and what they’re bringing to the table. Jessica Jones has received a little traction, but Luke Cage and Iron Fist have been kicked to the back burner.
Yesterday Heroic Hollywood stated that they had some character information and plot synopsis for the up coming Luke Cage show, which starts shooting next week and set to premiere in 2016 on Netflix. According to them, Luke Cage’s main villain will be Willis Stryker, who was a childhood friend of Luke Cage and a knife specialist. Luke Cages love interest was also revealed to be Reva Connors, who was his girlfriend before he gained his powers.
The follow is said to be the synopsis of the show
Luke Cage is a former gang member who is framed for a crime. In prison, he volunteers for a medical experiment that goes awry, giving him super strength and bulletproof skin. Using his new found powers, Cage escapes and becomes a hero for hire. His archenemy is Willy Stryker, a former childhood friend from Harlem. The two committed petty crimes together, and both fell for the same woman, Reva Connors, which led to their eventual falling out. It was Stryker who framed Cage for a drug deal that sent him to prison.
All of these are just rumors right now and should not be taken as complete truth until they have been confirmed by someone from the show.
