Mahershala Ali has joined the cast of Luke Cage as Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes,
a Harlem nightclub owner, who will become an unexpected foe in Luke’s life when Stokes’ criminal activities threaten Luke’s world.
When MISTY KNIGHT (Naomie Harris) lost her arm in the Battle of New York, she thought her life as a NYC cop was over—and it was. But her life as a defender of the city was just beginning.
One year later, a newly-armed Misty finds a partner in detective COLLEEN WING (Mylène Jampanoï). Together, the two unearth alien artifacts left behind in New York and combat the seedy underbelly of the city, which grows stronger as people with strange powers and abilities continue to emerge.
Eventually, their web of allies grows into something more. LUKE CAGE (Terry Crews) works point and provides extra muscle when Knight and Wing need it. Misty’s on-again, off-again boyfriend DANNY RAND (Charlie Hunnam) bankrolls the operation and helps out with his mastery of chi as Iron Fist. The newly-formed group has a penchant for picking up strays, and is soon joined by SHANG-CHI (Jay Chou), a weapons expert and master martial artist; FELICIA HARDY (Yvonne Strahovski), the famous thief known as Black Cat; and AVA AYALA (Seychelle Gabriel), a teenage girl with mystical powers who calls herself the White Tiger.
They’re mighty. They’re fearless. And they have one question—Are you for hire tonight, hero?
