  • Mike Colter is open to returning to the MCU as Luke Cage if the schedule allows for another season of Evil.

Luke Cage star Mike Colter has revealed what it would take for him to return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Colter starred in two seasons of Netflix's Luke Cage as the protector of Harlem. The series, like all the other Netflix Marvel shows, ended up being canceled by the streamer. Six years after the release of Luke Cage season 2, Marvel Studios has made The Defenders Saga canon to the MCU, and Colter comments on whether he would return as Luke Cage in future MCU projects.
Speaking to, Colter said that he would return to the MCU as Luke Cage if the schedule allowed him to do another season of his series Evil in the future. The Luke Cage star said that he does not think about what could have been, though Colter would be game to return to the MCU if a great idea came by. Since there are unresolved questions for a Luke Cage season 3, and Netflix Marvel actors have returned to the MCU in recent years, that possibility is looking good. Check out the full quote below:
"Only if it doesn't affect my schedule in a way that I can't do another season of Evil. I mean, I would totally entertain a good script and idea that made sense.
I don't stay up at night thinking about it, nor do I recall it unless someone brings it up. But I enjoyed my time. I don't look in the past. If something comes up, great, we'll talk about it. But right now, I'm [past it]."

If Colter ends up returning to the MCU as Luke Cage, then there is already the perfect story to continue his character's journey. Luke Cage season 2's ending saw Luke take over Harlem's Paradise, essentially becoming its new crime boss in an effort to control the criminal activity that had been running rampant in Harlem. That left the question of whether Luke had turned into a bad guy up in the air, and the MCU could finally answer it.
Luke Cage season 2's ending could connect to Kingpin's ongoing storyline in the MCU. At the end of Disney+'s Echo, Wilson Fisk got the idea to run for mayor of New York City. That will play out in Daredevil: Born Again, with Kingpin rumored to be the main villain of Tom Holland's Spider-Man 4. As Harlem's crime boss, Luke Cage would be a figure who has to deal directly with Kingpin in his new role, and that could be the perfect way for Mike Colter to return as the character in the MCU after the end of Netflix's Luke Cage.
