Latest news out of Netflix’s upcoming “Luke Cage” is that bionic badass Misty Knight has been cast!
Deadline reports Simone Missick will play “Missy,” described as “a woman with a strong sense of justice.”
Created by Tony Isabella and Arvell Jones, Knight is a former NYPD police officer who was seriously injured on the job and received a bionic arc from Tony Stark after retiring from the police force. She teamed up with Colleen Wing to start a detective agency and frequently works with Luke Cage and Iron Fist’s Heroes for Hire. Given that Marvel’s fourth Netflix series will be “Iron Fist” and lead into “The Defenders,” Knight makes a logical addition to the street-level side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Mike Colter will make his debut as Luke Cage on “Jessica Jones” later this year.
