Mike Colter Casts Doubt on Luke Cage Return in the MCU

Home TV News Mike Colter Casts Doubt on Luke Cage Return in the MCU
Mike Colter seems to have moved on from Luke Cage, putting the Marvel character in his “rear view mirror.”
The Marvel shows that previously streamed at Netflix are seeing some of their characters getting new life in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, leaving fans to wonder who could be the one that shows up next. We have already seen Charlie Cox return as Daredevil on both the big and small screens with appearances in Spider-Man: No Way Home and She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. Meanwhile, Vincent D’Onofrio has also reprised his role as Wilson “Kingpin” Fisk in Hawkeye and is set to reunite with Cox for the upcoming Disney+ series Daredevil: Born Again.
It’s only natural for fans to wonder if Mike Colter could soon be showing up to reprise his titular role from Luke Cage at this point. The actor, who can be seen in the new film Plane with Gerard Butler, was asked in a ComicBook.com interview if he’s been keeping in shape just in case he gets that call from Kevin Feige. Colter gave a response that cast doubt on a return, as while he says that getting that call would be “great,” he’s just as happy to see someone else continues on with the role, as his schedule as it stands now is pretty full as it is anyway. From the interview:
“I just try to stay in reasonable shape just because, but I don’t think about Luke Cage opportunities. It’s one of those things where it’s in the rear view mirror at this point. If somehow I get a call, my dance card is kind of full. But if I get a call, something happens, great. I had a good time. I’m happy, more than happy, to let someone else take on that mantle or that role. That character’s living on for a long time. Fans are going to have that character in one way, shape, or form for the rest of their lives, and I’m happy to have been a part of that for those guys.”

Will Luke Cage Join His Fellow Defenders In the MCU?
Marvel seems to have proven that you never really know what can happen in the MCU. There are rumors that the other Defenders could show up alongside Charlie Cox in Daredevil: Born Again, given that the series will have 18 episodes and plenty of time for special cameos from the Matt Murdock character’s old pals. Just recently, Krysten Ritter fueled new rumors of a Jessica Jones return by hitting the gym to train while wearing a Daredevil shirt.
Fans can speculate all they want, but time will ultimately have to tell what happens. Meanwhile, Charlie Cox has said that Daredevil: Born Again will be filming throughout the year with plans to debut the show on Disney+ in early 2024.
