Luke Cage season two won’t release until sometime next year, but actor Michael Colter has confirmed that series will be getting a Heroes for Hire story line at some point during the season.
In case you don’t know, Heroes for Hire is originally from the comics and features both Luke Cage and Iron Fist performing superhero work solely for money. It’s been rumored that this would occur since the two were announced in Netflix’s Defenders Story line, but this is the first confirmation we have. Colter stated to Black Film that
A lot of time people wanted to see Jessica Jones and Luke and what happens to them; but we went out on a limb, and decided to ‘let’s give a little Heroes for Hire somewhere in the season and see what happens.’ Hopefully people will respond to it.
Iron Fist also has a season two which will show him take up the role of Daredevil so to speak after the events of The Defenders. We still have to wait to hear more about Daredevil season 3, but check out our Defenders recap and Daredevil Easter egg feature for the spoilery details. Jessica Jones, however, will not be featured in Luke Cage season 2.
