Simone Missick, who plays the cop Misty Knight in Luke Cage, said she too will be appearing in next year’s small-screen superhero mashup.
“I believe I’m safe to say that I will be on The Defenders” the actress told TheWrap’s Stuart Brazell in a new episode of Drinking With the Stars. “Spoiler alert! If I lose my job because of this interview, sorry! I was supposed to be on ‘The Defenders,’ until I got fired,” she continued, jokingly.
Missick’s Misty Knight is a familiar Marvel comic book character, traditionally an NYPD detective who eventually gains a bionic arm, thanks to Tony Stark, and opens her own detective agency.
On the show, Misty Knight is a no-nonsense cop who grew up in the streets of Harlem. She starts investigating when reports of a man with super strength begin surfacing, putting her on a collision course with Colter’s bulletrproof superhero Luke Cage.
