‘Luke Cage’ Season 2 To Include Iron Fist

As we all wait for more news out of NYCC from our favorite shows, fans of Marvel’s The Defenders might get a kick (or a punch?) out of some news about Luke Cage S2.

We don’t have many details as of yet, but EW reports that we can expect to see Danny Rand, aka the Immortal Iron Fist, appear in the second season of Luke Cage’s standalone series. The Defenders showed the two of them plus Daredevil and Jessica Jones banding together to save New York. But at the end of that show, the four had all gone their separate ways again. At this point, we don’t know what brings Danny and Luke back to the same screen.

My personal hope is that Luke continues to act as a mentor and steadying factor to the younger man. Frankly, Danny got on many fans’ nerves – mine included. So for him to have the chance to learn from the ultra-cool Mr. Cage can only help his character. The other factor this team-up in S2 might be related to is that in the Marvel comics, Luke and Danny are partners.

Either way, let’s hope Luke and Danny stay allies, if only because I definitely want more Defenders someday. Luke Cage S2 is expected to air in 2018 on Netflix.
