Alfre Woodward To Join Marvel’s ‘Luke Cage’ In Key Role

alfrewoodard_1dDeadline reports that Alfre Woodard (Desperate Housewives, True Blood, as well as a voice on the short-lived Black Panther cartoon) has joined the cast of Marvel Entertainment and Netflix’s Luke Cage in the key role of Minetta, “a powerful woman in local politics who will have an impact on Luke Cage’s life.” The outlet notes that the character may in fact be the villain Black Mariah, a gang leader and prime antagonist for both Luke Cage and his buddy Iron Fist, though this has not been confirmed.

Cheo Hodari Coker (Notorious, NCIS: Los Angeles) will serve as executive producer and showrunner of the anticipated series, Marvel’s Luke Cage. Coker is writing the first two episodes of the series that will premiere in 2016, everywhere that Netflix is available.

Marvel’s Luke Cage will star Mike Colter as the charismatic lead character, Luke Cage, in the series, though he will make his debut in the upcoming Marvel’s Jessica Jones, which is set to premiere later this year.

Created by Archie Goodwin and John Romita, Sr., Luke Cage is one of the most popular street level heroes in the Marvel Universe who possesses superhuman strength and impenetrable skin. He’s also a friend and frequent business partner with Danny Rand aka Iron Fist, who will also be getting his own series on Netflix.
