Marvel’s Netflix-exclusive Luke Cage has found itself another villain!

With Mike Colter on board to play the titular Power Man, Deadline is reporting that Cloverfield’s Theo Rossi is to play Shades in the show. Whilst Shades will trouble Cage, it’s already been confirmed that Black Mariah, played by True Blood’s Alfre Woodard, will be the main villain of the show.

As for Shades, he first appeared way back in a 1972 issue of Luke Cage, Hero for Hire. After breaking out of prison, the rogue ends up becoming the owner of a visor that allows him to fire optic blasts.

The third of Marvel’s Netflix-exclusive shows, Luke Cage will follow Daredevil and Jessica Jones (in which Colter’s Cage will actually debut), premiering next year and to be followed by Iron Fist and then the Defenders mini-series.
