While fans may be eagerly awaiting the release of Marvel’s The Defenders, the four heroes of the upcoming series will still have their own problems to solve once their respective shows return. Speaking at Houston’s Comicpalooza, Luke Cage star Mike Colter discussed the upcoming second season of the series and shared his hope for when the show may be released on Netflix.
Colter revealed when he will begin filming the second season and expressed his hope that the show will return in early 2018.
“I’m about to start next month. When the Defenders comes out on August 18, that’ll be something we can hold onto for a little while and we can enjoy that. And hopefully, we’ll get to see Luke Cage out early next year.”
Until then, fans will be able to watch Mike Colter on The Defenders when the series premieres this summer.
“Marvel’s The Defenders” follows Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. A quartet of singular heroes with one common goal – to save New York City. This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realize they just might be stronger when teamed together.
Marvel’s The Defenders stars Charlie Cox, Krysten Ritter, Mike Colter, Finn Jones, Deborah Ann Woll, Simone Missick, Elden Henson, Carrie-Anne Moss, Eka Darville, Rachel Taylor, Rosario Dawson, Scott Glenn, Jessica Henwick, Elodie Yung and Sigourney Weaver.

Their separate investigations will bring them together in – what else – a hallway fight.
