With The Defenders now in the books, all eyes are on what lies ahead for Marvel’s small screen Netflix heroes. And on that front, we’ve been given our first look at how Misty Knight will appear in Season 2 of Marvel’s Luke Cage.
We’d like to think that you wouldn’t have clicked on this page unless you’ve already watched all eight episodes of The Defenders, and so if that’s the case then you know exactly how that miniseries ended for Misty Knight. Yes, this is our polite way of saying that there’s some spoilers ahead for those of you who’ve yet to watch Marvel’s latest Netflix-exclusive effort.
If you remember, as The Defenders came to a close we saw a hospital-bed-bound Misty sans an arm after losing the limb during the latter stages of the miniseries. While that may have been a shocking moment for some, comic book fans may have half been expecting that revelation to happen given that the comic-book Misty actually has a bionic arm given to her by Tony Stark. And now, courtesy of EW, the first image has been revealed of Simone Missick’s Misty rocking a bionic arm in Luke Cage’s second season.
Now while Marvel’s Netflix shows do take place within the confines of the greater Marvel Cinematic Universe, it seems more likely that it will be Danny Rand who helps Misty get her swanky new arm rather than Stark being behind it. After all, The Defenders saw Rand actually owning the hospital and offering to help Misty out with whatever she needed.
The second year of Marvel’s Luke Cage has yet to be given an official premiere date, but we know that Power Man and his cast of supporting characters will be back at some point in 2018. As well as Mike Colter back as Luke Cage and Simone Missick appearing as Misty Knight, Rosario Dawson’s Claire Temple, Alfre Woodard’s Mariah Dillard, and Theo Rossi’s Shades will also be returning. In terms of new additions, so far the series has brought in The Deuce’s Mustafa Shakir as John McIver and Rosewood’s Gabrielle Dennis as Tilda Johnson.
