Luke Cage is so popular that it apparently broke Netflix when it shut down for two hours yesterday (I don’t know the show’s premiere weekend numbers, but I’d like to think that’s the case).
But if you’ve reached the finale (there’ll be spoilers below, so if you haven’t finished the series, you’ve been warned), you know that Rosario Dawson’s Claire Temple will probably be dropping by the next Marvel Netflix series, Iron Fist.
Claire is the one character who’s appeared in all three of Netflix’s Marvel series. From Daredevil to Jessica Jones, and now Luke Cage, Claire is the tie that binds all the series together. In the Luke Cage finale montage, Claire is seen walking through the streets in Harlem. It’s there she spots a flyer on a telephone pole of Colleen Wing’s martial arts defense classes.
Colleen Wing, who will be played by Jessica Henwick, is an ally to Danny Rand, aka Iron Fist (Finn Jones). Iron Fist is the next and final series to premiere before the four superheroes–Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist–converge in next year’s Defenders.
I don’t know about you, but I am immensely excited about the possibility of seeing Claire and Colleen interact. Neither character has superpowers, but Colleen is a samurai and having her teach Claire some moves would be fantastic. Claire has already been so much of a helping hand in all three shows thus far, and the possibility of her helping out in other ways besides medically, is something I’m looking forward to.
