Deadline article on potential castings for Luke Cage

Not familiar with any of the actors, but look-wise… they nailed Cage nicely.

*EDIT* Scratch that! Colter is a better choice. Gross looks too hip hop and skinny (though of course this can be tweaked), but Colter has this roughness (similar to Henry Simmons) that definitely fits Luke Cage. He’s way older than Gross though, I hope that won’t be a problem…

Call it a wishful thinking, but I do wish they could introduce whoever got the role in AoS and not via the usual site announcement. Just have him show up as a quick cameo in an episode in the second half of season 2, and that would be neat.

A lot of people on other sites are enraged that Terry Crews wasn’t considered. There was a reason he wasn’t considered and it has nothing to do with the fact that he’s 46.

It’s due to the fact that he has a very busy schedule. Besides Brooklyn Nine-Nine, he is also the host of Who Wants to be a Millionaire, which probably shoots 3 to 4 times a day when he’s not shooting B99.

My MCU Rankings: 1. The Avengers- 9/10, 2. Captain America: The Winter Soldier- 9/10, 3. Guardians of the Galaxy- 9/10 , 4. Iron Man- 8.5/10, 5. Captain America: The First Avenger- 8/10, 6. Thor- 8/10, 7. Iron Man 2- 7.5/10, 8. Thor: The Dark World- 7/10, 9. Iron Man 3- 7/10, 10. The Incredible Hulk- 6/10

I’m probably in the minority (like my feelings about Captain Marvel’s fan casting), but I have never liked the idea of Terry Crews as Luke Cage. And it’s not his age. There’s something about him; “crude” isn’t the right word, but just something that doesn’t make me like him. :-/

But yes, he seems to be a very busy guy.

I like him, but anyone that thinks he has a chance of being Luke Cage is out of their minds. I could see him in a recurring role or a villain role, but as the lead? No. Marvel are going to go for someone in their early to mid 30s, someone relatively unknown.

Just like Jessica Jones, a new contender has entered the fray for Cage as well

Crews is too old.. Marvel are going for a younger cast.. they want to develop the characters and keep options open for future seasons as well
