Marvel Confirms Halo‘s Mike Colter as Luke Cage


That’s Colter as Locke in the live-action Halo: Nightfall, a role he reprises via voice-acting in Halo 5. Aside from that he has mostly done smaller roles on TV, but he certainly looks the part of Luke Cage, and he probably came cheaper than Terry Crews (if I were DC/WB, I’d quickly try to figure out which of their roster he can conceivably play and nail him down). Weirdly, he has only been announced as playing Cage in the Netflix series A.K.A. Jessica Jones, though they already said there’d be a Luke Cage show earlier.

Thoughts? Wild speculation? Dirty jokes? Oh yeah…does this casting make it a sweet Christmas? And did they announce this week just so I could drop that line?
