Mike Colter, aka Luke Cage, took the stage with fellow castmates at Rhode Island Comic Con last weekend. Simone Missick (Misty Night), Theo Rossi (Shades), Jade Wu (Connie Lin) and Frank Whaley (Rafael Scarfe) joined in the fun as they discussed the Defenders universe and addressed questions from the audience. One fan asked if any of them actually resembled their characters in real life. Laughter broke throughout the ballroom as Mr. Colter explained his ‘not so close’ correlation to Mr. Cage.
It was delightful to see the camaraderie within Luke Cage family. And, as in all families, there was witty banter and playful prodding between them. From special brownies and almond butter to ladies lingerie and personal ads… nothing seemed to be off limits.
Mike Colter even took time to address his relationship with fellow Defender, Finn Jones (Iron Fist). The two may seem at opposite ends of the spectrum, but it is sometimes differences that can bring people together as explained by Mr. Colter.
I am excited to see what season 2 brings our hero of superhuman strength. Keep an eye out for Luke Cage and let Fan Fest News know who is your favorite Defender?
