Luke cage is gearing up to have some more comic book characters than the last one and also a little more out there characters as well.
Earlier we found out that Nightshade (left) and Bushmaster (right) will be apart of season 2 of Luke Cage.
Playing these roles are Gabrielle Dennis (Insecure) that will be playing Tilda Johnson AKA Nightshade and Mustafa Shakir (The Night Of) as John McIver AKA Bushmaster.
Marvel Describes Tilda as “a brilliant, holistic doctor with a complicated history in Harlem where, as much as she tries to stay far from trouble, it seems to always find her.”
Shakir's character is “a natural leader, brimming with charisma, whose mission is focused on Harlem and vengeance.”
“Mustafa's incredible presence and power ignited us from our first meeting, and Gabrielle brings the charm and smarts to a very complicated role,” said Jeph Loeb in the press release. “Both will be wonderful additions to our already magnificent cast.”
“I can't wait for audiences to see the compelling paces we put both Mustafa and Gabrielle through,” said showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker. “From the moment you see each of them on screen, I feel they will be powerful additions to the world of Marvel and Harlem's Luke Cage.” For more Nerd News, updates and podcast's then keep it right here at Nerdz With Wordz.
