The Defenders had its fair share of problems but one of the things it absolutely got right was the chemistry between Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Iron Fist (Finn Jones). Iron Fist and Luke Cage are one of the great bromances of comics and have had a book together called Heroes for Hire. An image from Luke Cage season 2 revealed that Iron Fist will make an appearance and in an interview with Black Film Colter spoke about the dynamic and what we can expect to see.
There are people that love the idea of Heroes for Hire. When people saw The Defenders, they thought the relationship was good between Finn and I and they are curious. They want to see more of that. He will bring some fresh blood in the new season and I’m hoping that people will respond to it well. We are teamed up for a bit. That’s the whole point of bringing that flavor to it. I can see how this works. That’s what good about it. We’re giving people what they want. A lot of times people wanted to see Jessica Jones and Luke and what happens to them; but we went out on a limb, and decided to “let’s give a little heroes for hire somewhere in the season and see what happens.” Hopefully people will respond to it.
Aside from that Colter couldn’t get into specifics but it’s good that the production saw what worked in Defenders and are willing to expand on that. Now that the Defenders have met each other it’s going to take some fancy footwork to justify not calling on one another for help.
Luke Cage season 2 will stream to Netflix sometimes in 2018.
