Rumor Mongering: Marvel and Netflix Cast Psych Star, Dulé Hill as Luke Cage
Have Marvel and Netflix found their Luke Cage? According to Screencrush, Psych star and The West Wing alum Dulé Hill has been cast as one of the Defenders.
It's just a rumor for now, and it seems a little strange that Luke Cage is the second of the Defenders to be cast (after Daredevil), when the Luke Cage Marvel/Netflix show is scheduled to be aired last, after Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Iron Fist. And Daredevil and Jessica Jones are the only shows confirmed to have even entered production, although Marvel may have decided to cast the four leads ahead of time in order to ensure their chemistry for the Defenders miniseries.
Marvel previously announced that they would be collaborating with Netflix on four live-action series that would each focus on one superhero- Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage- and then combine all four in a Defenders miniseries. There are rumors that the first look at Daredevil will arrive at New York Comic Con next weekend, and that the panel will include the revelation of all four Defenders leads. Outer Places will be on site at New York Comic Con all weekend, so to find out if these rumors are true, follow us on Twitter and Like us on Facebook.
