First Look at Mike Colter as the Hero for Hire on the Set of Luke Cage
We've seen Mike Colter as Luke Cage, aka Power Man, aka the Hero for Hire, on the set of Jessica Jones, but set photos have finally been released revealing the actor as the titular superhero on his own show:

The images seem to show Luke Cage before he gets caught up with the criminal element of New York City, apparently working at a barber shop. Colter will make his first appearance as the character on Jessica Jones, as her love interest and ally, before headlining his own show. We're excited to see Colter's take on the character, especially since comics legend Brian Michael Bendis said that his casting "perfect" and "as strong and spot on as the casting of Tony Stark."

The official description for Luke Cage reads:

Opening quote
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. But he is soon pulled out of the shadows and must fight a battle for the heart of his city—forcing him to confront a past he had tried to bury.
Closing quote


All episodes of the first season of Luke Cage are set to premiere on Netflix sometime in 2016, followed by the second season of Daredevil later that year, an Iron Fist series, and a Defenders miniseries.
