Mike Colter: 'Luke Cage' 'represented something more than just entertainment'

It's been said that the writers' room turned in to Marvel and Netflix "detailed drafts" for five episodes of a potential new season during the week of Monday, October 15. In the wake of the cancellations of Iron Fist and Luke Cage, it reminds everyone what made The Defenders' corner of the MCU so special to begin with, and provides just about the best season of television to have featured the Man Without Fear yet.

Despite two relatively strong and compelling seasons, Marvel's Luke Cage is no more, which only casts doubt over Jessica Jones and Daredevil's immediate futures.

Season 3 of Netflix's Daredevil has released, and viewers have noticed the series is using songs from the soundtracks from a few popular video games. "Everyone at Marvel Television and Netflix is grateful to the dedicated showrunner, writers, cast and crew who brought Harlem's Hero to life for the past two seasons, and to all the fans who have supported the series".

According to Deadline, creative differences is what led to the cancellation.

"Unfortunately, Marvel's Luke Cage will not return for a third season", Marvel and Netflix explained in a joint statement to Variety.

The test, which found that Warren could be between 1/64 and 1/1024 Native American, backfired in showing she had about the same amount of the Native American genome as five million European-Americans, according to a study cited by the New York Times .

Given how baffling this news was to fans, they aren't sitting sweetly and just accepting Netflix's decision. The actor took to social media Sunday (Oct. 21) to express gratitude and show off the newest addition to his family. Since the shock of both cancelations hit, Marvel fans have rallied behind Luke Cage and Iron Fist to petition the streaming service to resurrect both shows.

Axing Luke Cage, however, was a total surprise.

Looks like it's a not-so-sweet Christmas for the hero of Harlem.

Given how Iron Fist ended, on a much more fun pulpy tone, and Luke Cage's status quo as well, both those characters could easily fit into the more PG-13 Disney Play plans easily, right alongside the other Marvel TV series they're planning.

The cancellation of the show was a shock to many fans of the Marvel hit, which was a launching pad for Oscar victor Mahershala Ali and a star-making turn for Colter, named one of PEOPLE's Sexiest Men Alive in 2017. Fans are also hopeful that a Heroes for Hire series will come to fruition.
