The moment we saw Charlie Cox return as Daredevil, the floodgates were open on who else might also return in one form or another. So far, we only got Vincent D’Onofrio‘s Kingpin in the Marvel Cinematic Universe but we’re still waiting for any hint on what the future may have in store for the rest of The Defenders. So, anyone getting a chance to interview an actor that played one of the roles on the Netflix series will use the opportunity.
ComicBook.com got the chance t interview Mike Colter if he’d be interested to return as Luke Cage. His story infamously was cut short just as he was hinted at potentially diving into the darker side of Harlem. It would be a great opportunity to soft reboot his character while also hinting at what those hints may have originally developed yet it seems he’s hung up the yellow shirt for now.
I just try to stay in reasonable shape just because, but I don’t think about Luke Cage opportunities. It’s one of those things where it’s in the rear view mirror at this point. If somehow I get a call, my dance card is kind of full. But if I get a call, something happens, great.Mike Colter
He still keeps the door open a bit to potentially re-appear if something comes together, but it does seem like he’s got enough on his plate with the new film Plane, his work on the series Evil, and more. So, it might be quite difficult to even find the right time for him to join the ever-growing franchise.
