While a lot of focus is going to be on Jessica Jones ahead of its November debut, the folks at Marvel are clearing up some recent casting buzz for Luke Cage that has surfaced and formalizing some of the characters so fans know what’s in store.Marvel is on the news train lately with tidbits of information about their upcoming Netflix series, ‘Luke Cage.’ After confirming Alfe Woodard‘s role in the series, now they have released a list of characters for the upcoming superhero show, with descriptions of each and quotes from Executive Producer and Head of Marvel TV Jeph Loeb to give us some insight into how they see each character fitting into the show.

“We are thrilled to have Rosario in another one of our television series,” Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of TV stated. “Her performance as Claire Temple in ‘Marvel’s Daredevil’ was astonishing and we can’t wait to see her shine in ‘Marvel’s Luke Cage.'” In comics, Misty Knight is a former police officer who gains superhuman strength after Tony Stark gives her a bionic arm to replace the one she lost in the line of duty. The new characters are expected to provide interesting takes in the coming episodes. “Marvel’s Luke Cage” will be the third Marvel Studios series on Netflix. The supporting cast has gotten the nods here with some choice quotes about both actor and character to check out as well as the addition of Frank Whaley to the property. The announcement explains how “her blossoming friendship with Luke Cage will have a major impact on both characters’ lives.” This news follows the announcement that Alfre Woodard has signed on to “Luke Cage” to play Mariah Dillard, a local Harlem politician and cousin of Cage’s arch-rival Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes (who will be played by Mahershala Ali).

Rafael Scarfe,” said Coker. “He’s a great counterpart to Misty, and a wonderful actor.” Actress Rosario Dawson, celebrated for her work in “Top Five,” “Sin City,” and “Kids,” will reprise her role from “Marvel’s Daredevil” as nurse Claire Temple. Cheo Hodari Coker (“SouthLAnd,” “Ray Donovan”) will write the series’ first two episodes in addition to serving as showrunner and Executive Producer along with Loeb.

Plot concept: After a sabotaged experiment leaves him with super strength and unbreakable skin, Luke Cage (Mike Colter) becomes a fugitive trying to rebuild his life in modern day Harlem, New York City. Fans, however, will first see Colter’s Cage in a supporting role on “Marvel’s Jessica Jones” on Netflix, which premieres on November 20, 2015.
