Danny and Luke share some screen time together again in Season 2 of Marvel’s Luke Cage. Marvel is keeping details of Danny’s involvement under wraps, but when Luke’s standalone series returns on Netflix, the two comic-book partners will be seen together at least once. Danny Rand did offer to pay for Misty Knight’s hospital bills after her unfortunate accident in Marvel’s The Defenders, so perhaps he will help her in Luke Cage Season 2?
EW shared the first look photo from Luke Cage season 2 that shows Jones back in character as the Immortal Iron Fist standing opposite Mike Colter as Luke. In only a short amount of time, Jones proved to have great chemistry alongside Colter, making them a fan-favorite pairing in the team up.
Check out the first photo of Power Man and Iron Fist together again in Luke Cage Season 2 below:
In the comics, Cage’s attempt to merge the usually non-profit life of a superhero with the business aspects of a P.I. the firm brought about the “Heroes For Hire” concept that Danny Rand would be a perfect partner for. The two would go on to form a new Heroes For Hire, Inc, founded by attorney Jeryn Hogarth and staffed by Jennie Royce. However, at the end of Marvel’s The Defenders, Iron Fist and Luke Cage parted ways with Cage returning to his home in Harlem and Rand vowing to protect the city in memory of a fallen hero and with a greater sense of confidence in his abilities.
Luke Cage Season 2 stars Colter as Luke Cage; Simone Missick as Mercedes “Misty” Knight; Theo Rossi as Hernan “Shades” Alvarez; Mustafa Shakir as John McIver; Gabrielle Dennis as Tilda Johnson; Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple; Alfre Woodard as Mariah Dillard; and Thomas Q. Jones as Comanche. Production is already underway with some special guest stars and directors on the roster this season.
Marvel’s Luke Cage returns in 2018 on Netflix.
