We’ve heard it time and time again – will such-and-such appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? The answer is usually a resounding ‘no’ and guess what? It’s another no from Mike Colter. The ‘Luke Cage’ star was recently asked in an interview on Power 105.1 FM’s Breakfast Morning Club Radio Programme about whether or not we’d be able to see Luke Cage or any other character from the Netflix series make their way onto the big screen. Unfortunately, he had this to say:
What we do is really unique. We’re adult kind of oriented. We’re not PG-13. We’re not really for the mass audiences, crowd pleasing, family oriented. We have sex scenes. We have, you know, adult situations, and while I think it’d be nice to be in the films, I don’t know if we want to dilute what we’re doing that makes us very unique.”
Understandable. However, one wouldn’t necessarily have to dilute the characters in order to make them fit into the MCU. After all, these are comic book characters who share a whole universe together in print. He then went onto deliver the usual spiel on how scheduling conflicts play a big part in the creative process:
That being said, you know Marvel, if they can make it work I’m sure it’d be nice, but it’s really scheduling. They schedule movies years in advance, we’re shooting TV series year round. It’s very tough to just kind of make things just work the way you want to because it’s just so much going on.”
So there’s your answer. If you’ve had hopes for seeing Luke Cage, Daredevil or any other Netflix characters to make their way onto the big screen then you’re out of luck!
Which character would you like to see jump onto the silver screen? Does the lack of connectivity with the MCU bother you? Or do you much prefer the universe created on the Netflix shows? Sound off down below!
