‘Luke Cage’s Mike Colter Unsure About Appearing In Marvel Films

luke-cage-marvel-filmsLuke Cage finally arrived last week as Marvel’s Power Man kicked off his own series on Netflix which has received a lot of critical praise. Given that Luke Cage as well as all the other Marvel Netflix and TV shows, is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the question that always comes up is whether we will ever see the shows and films do any crossovers.

In a recent interview with the Breakfast Club Power show, Mike Colter, who portrays Luke Cage, was asked what if he thinks there is a chance that it will happen. When asked, Colter didn’t seem so sure about it, because of tricky scheduling between the two divisions at Marvel.

“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. 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.”

Marvel’s Luke Cage is now available for streaming on Netflix.

    This is all reasonable logic. They don’t necessarily have to all be in the same scene though. Brief cameo appearances can be done, where the Netflix characters observe the Thanos invasion, but can’t help/are dealing with minions in their own neighborhoods, or, should Thanos kill half the universe with the Gauntlet, show some Defenders disappearing/dying. There are workarounds for the complicated scheduling issues.

    Duh, of course he’s not gonna appear in the movies. Why does this keep getting talked about over and over? The movies are not crossing over the with the TV shows. Get over it.
