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!

Announcing via Instagram, Bryan Singer has confirmed Kodi Smit-McPhee has been cast as the young version of Nightcrawler in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse film for 2016.
Smit-McPhee is known for his recent appearance in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, but is lauded for his performance in The Road. As Nightcrawler, we haven’t seen the character since X-2, which was then portrayed by Alan Cumming. With the fuzzy elf and son of Mystique joining the other new cast members, will we see more Nightcrawler [...]
Chiwetel Ejiofor, with a name like that, he should be cast in DOCTOR STRANGE. Just kidding, but really, Marvel is in talks to have the star of 12 Years a Slave appear in their Doctor Strange film. Current word is that he will NOT play a villain, so we can cast those rumors aside.
If Ejiofor isn’t a villain, who we presume will be Baron Mordo, who could he be? Options include the Ancient One, who mentors Strange early on, and possibly Brother Voodoo, the man who would be Sorcerer Supreme after Strange gave up the title.
