New ‘Luke Cage’ Season 2 Photos: Power Man & Iron Fist Together Again

Luke Cage

While Marvel’s Iron Fist Netflix series was not quite what comic book fans were hoping for, Finn Jones’ Danny Rand did show a lot of improvement when he appeared as part of Marvel’s The Defenders this past August. We learned a couple of weeks back that Danny would be appearing in Season 2 of Luke Cage, which is currently filming in New York, and now we have a whole slew of new images featuring the future Heroes For Hire together again.

New images of Danny and Luke together on the set of Luke Cage Season 2 have appeared on a Finn Jones fan site. While they started to become friendly in The Defenders, these images may suggest that they will still be butting heads. Either that, or they are just engaging in a nice sparring session, though, wouldn’t Colleen Wing’s dojo be a better place for this than in public?

Also worth noting is that Danny is wearing a hoodie featuring the words “Sweet X-Mas” on the back, a nice nod to Luke’s catchphrase, however, this is a bit confusing in an in-world story sense. Luke’s superheroics are public knowledge in the Netflix world, so perhaps someone is selling Luke Cage merchandise and Danny thought he would support his fellow Defender. Who knows, maybe Luke isn’t getting any of the profits and that is what leads to the two fighting. Heroes have fought for dumber reasons.

You can check out all of these images (there are over 50) here.

Marvel’s The Defenders stars Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil, Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, Finn Jones as Danny Rand/Iron Fist, Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple, Scott Glenn as Stick, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, Rachel Taylor as Trish Walker, Carrie-Anne Moss as Jeri Hogarth, Eka Darville as Malcolm Ducasse, Simone Missick as Detective Misty Knight, Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing, Wai Ching Ho as Madame Gao, Elodie Yung as Elektra Natchios, and Sigourney Weaver as the villainous Alexandra.

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.

Season 1 of Marvel’s The Defenders is now available to stream on Netflix. Season 2 of Luke Cage is expected to drop sometime in early 2018.

10 The Defenders/Marvel Cinematic Universe Crossovers We Want To See

Previous1 of 11

Netflix The Defenders The Avengers Marvel Cinematic UniverseAfter three long years, the Marvel Netflix universe is finally coming together for the epic crossover event series The Defenders, where Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist will team up to fight to save New York from a massive army of deadly ninjas known as The Hand. However, that is not the only crossover that Marvel and Defenders fans are longing for. Ever since these shows were announced, fans have been wondering when we might be able to see these characters appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe proper or when we might see a movie character appear on one of the shows.

Currently, though, there seems to be a divide between Marvel Television and Marvel Studios. They always like to say “it’s all connected,” but the most we get in the Netflix world is the occasional reference to “magic hammers” or “the green guy” or “the incident.” Marvel’s ABC shows have been given a bit more love, with characters like Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury, Colbie Smulders’ Maria Hill or Jaimie Alexander’s Lady Sif showing up from time to time on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but we still haven’t seen much crossover in the way of actual Avengers appearing on the show or characters like Daisy Johnson/Quake (Chloe Bennet) appearing in a Marvel film.

Who knows if we’ll ever actually see these two worlds clash in a way that is satisfying to both fans of the films and fans of the shows, but it sure is a heck of a lot of fun to dream. With these worlds so populated by superheroes, the possibilities are endless, but there are quite a few crossovers that we already know we would love to see.

Before we begin with this list, I would like to note that this article may feature spoilers for some of the Marvel Netflix series up until this point, including Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. However, I have not seen any episodes of The Defenders yet, so there will be no intentional spoilers for that show.

So, without further adieu, here are the ten crossovers between Netflix’s The Defenders and the Marvel Cinematic Universe films that we want to see. Hit the next button below to begin!
