It is interesting to see where a show centered around Cage will go. He played a fairly prominent part in Jessica Jones, but Colter has been adamant about it not just feeling like a sequel.
“We pride ourselves in all being unique shows, and Luke Cage is definitely not a sequel to Jessica Jones or a spinoff,” says Colter. “The show that we’re filming now is completely different. He goes off to uptown and he does his own thing, and there will be some of that. The time lapse is not that long, and so it’s not like Jessica Jones never happened. I think in the world of Jessica Jones, what I enjoyed about being in that world as Luke Cage is that I wasn’t front and center.”
