'Luke Cage' actor Mike Colter thinks former President of the United States Barack Obama could play a villain in an upcoming season of the Netflix original Marvel series.
Netflix and Marvel have been enjoying huge success with their slate of original superhero shows on the streaming service, and the second season of Mike Colter-led 'Luke Cage' recently dropped on the platform. Seeing the character go up against a new villain in Bushmaster, the door was of course left open for a third season, which we imagine will be dropping in the next couple of years.

As for where the story goes from here, that's anybody's guess, as Netflix like to keep their cards close to their chest. We imagine lots of ideas are being floated around behind-the-scenes, but a recent suggestion by Colter may be something that would take even the most inventive of creatives working on the show by surprise.

The actor says the 'Luke Cage' team are "giving people what they want".
When Marvel fans saw Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Danny Rand aka Iron Fist (Finn Jones) together for the first time earlier this year, upon the arrival of 'The Defenders' on Netflix, the hype surrounding a potential collaboration in the future and creation of the much-loved Marvel Comics crime-fighting Heroes for Hire group grew tenfold.

Following that series, it was confirmed that Iron Fist would be making his way to 'Luke Cage' season 2. Whilst we don't know exactly why he'll be crossing over into Luke's territory, there are plenty of theories about their coming together.
The actor would like to explore the hero's "newfound freedoms".
The Marvel Television universe is certainly one of the most impressive juggernauts of the small screen in the modern day. Kicking things off on Netflix as part of their collaboration with 'Daredevil', the show saw major success; something that continued with the release of 'Jessica Jones'.

Then came the second season of 'Daredevil' and the first of 'Luke Cage', again, both of which were loved by critics and fans alike. When 'Iron Fist' was introduced however, he didn't bring joy to those reviewing the show, despite the viewers proving their love for the series by watching it in their hordes.

This movie's premise basically sounds like The Hangover with added black girl power. But it's actually a lot more than that, with themes and ideas that emerge across the board. Although what audiences will remember are the more raucous comedic moments, which gleefully dive headlong into full-on vulgarity to keep the audience laughing all the way through to the big finale. And this will also be forever remembered as the movie that made The Carmichael Show's Tiffany Haddish a star.
She plays Dina, the sassy, hard-partying member of the Flossy Posse, a group of four friends from university 25 years ago. The others are superstar self-help guru Ryan (Regina Hall), notorious gossip blogger Sasha (Queen Latifah) and workaholic single mother Lisa (Jada Pinkett Smith). Worrying that their friendship is fading away with time, Ryan proposes a reunion to travel to EssenceFest in New Orleans, where she's giving the keynote speech. So off they go to let their hair down and escape their responsible lives. But Sasha has just received a paparazzi photo of Ryan's football-star husband Stewart (Mike Colter) snuggling up with an Instagram model, and Dina immediately wants revenge. On the other hand, Ryan is concerned about maintaining her public image.
There are two big themes here that fit in rather nicely with the crazed antics that pepper the movie with rude flashes of riotous hilarity. First of course is the importance of sometimes setting your chores aside and just having fun with your friends. But the deeper message is about the importance of living honestly instead of just pretending that everything is great. Ryan, Sasha and Lisa have to face these issues and deal deeply with how they live their lives. Meanwhile, Dina just keeps partying. But then, she's the film's relentless scene-stealer, and the audience wouldn't have it any other way.

The leading star says that the second season of the show will be "very unique".
There's no denying the incredible response that Marvel's 'Luke Cage' saw upon its first season release on Netflix. Following in the vein of 'Daredevil' and 'Jessica Jones', the show introduced the bulletproof hero as he battled against some of the biggest threats to his home in New York.

Burdened with their own individual challenges, the four will come to realise quickly that when they put their minds, skills and varying talents together, they can do wonderful things; something they'll likely have to do if they're to take down the mysterious and villainous new character Alexandra, played by Sigourney Weaver.

The actor is opening up about what to expect when the series makes its return.
For many, the Marvel television series that go straight to Netflix as part of their special collaboration are the best shows Marvel TV has ever had to offer. Having brought two seasons of 'Daredevil' to viewers to-date, along with a single series of 'Jessica Jones', 'Luke Cage' and 'Iron Fist', it's fair to say the standalone series have been a success. Next up? 'The Defenders', where all four of those heroes will team up to take on a threat like none other.

'Jessica Jones' will not be getting any cheerier...
Marvel continued their slew of Netflix original series in 2015 with the addition of 'Jessica Jones'. Following on from the success of 'Daredevil', the show had a lot to prove. For the first time, a female hero was being given centre-stage to prove she could reel in the viewers just as easily as her male counterparts and, for the most part the series definitely did that through its first season.
The first season of 'Jessica Jones' was a huge hit for Marvel and Netflix
Bringing Krysten Ritter to fans as the titular character, 'Jessica Jones' helped pave the way for future series 'Luke Cage' and 'Iron Fist', with a collaborative season - 'The Defenders' - bringing all four of the heroes involved in Netflix's series together later this year.
