When Luke Cage was released on Netflix in September, the series was widely praised partly for its social commentary addressing race relations in America. Now, with Netflix having ordered a second season of the series, Shadowhunters star Isaiah Mustafa spoke with Comicbook.com where he expressed his enthusiasm for the show and affirmed that he would love to take on a role in the second season.
Isaiah Mustafa praised the direction of the show and shared his willingness to appear in the second season.
“I mean, why not? Definitely, I’d play anything on that. I just love the characters so much that I really just want to be a part of it in some way. Just get an opportunity to just play in that world, but I think the direction they went was probably the best direction they could have went. But yes, I would love to be involved in any aspect of any Marvel production. It would just be fun.”
Mustafa’s co-star, Harry Shum Jr., also expressed interest in working on a superhero project, citing the genres recent exploration of social issues as a reason.
“For me that’s what’s so fun to see in some of these movies that are coming out…They’re really just talking about these social injustices and issues that was started in the comic books…For me, that’s a big thumbs up and hell yes.”
