Marvel is proceeding with more casting for their Netflix Original Series, LUKE CAGE. Presumably airing fall of 2016, the series has now added actress Alfre Woodard in the role of Minetta, a powerful local politician who carries a big role in Luke Cage’s life.

Deadline is reporting that Woodard’s “Minetta” could actually be a cover for Luke Cage’s main Marvel Comics adversary, Black Mariah. In the comics, Black Mariah was a crime lord and drug dealer.

At this time, we have Mike Colter as Luke Cage and Cheo Hedari Coker as show runner for the third Marvel and Netflix series.

Stay tuned as we update you with more LUKE CAGE news!
