It’s Easter soon, and Netflix has hidden one hell of an easter egg in the final episode of the second season of Daredevil.
And no, not the chocolate kind. The second season of the Marvel series was released on Friday, and viewers who spent the entire weekend binge-watching it were rewarded by a pop-up message in the bottom right of their screens that read, “Not far from Hell’s Kitchen, another hero is rising in Harlem.”
Clicking on it started a 25-second teaser suggesting they watch hotly-anticipated Luke Cage next:
The brief clip shows Cage (played by Mike Colter) in a stand-off with a group of gun-toting criminals in a gym, before Nas’ “Made You Look” starts up as Cage looks unconcerned by the bullets ricocheting off his impenetrable skin.
Luke Cage is the latest Marvel hero to hit the small screen in Netflix’s partnership with Marvel. He was first seen in Jessica Jones, the series that kicked off the five-show plan, and will go on to team up Avengers-style in The Defenders with Daredevil, already the star of his own series, and Iron Fist, whose series is expected to premiere in 2017.
But first he’s got his own show. WARNING: Jessica Jones Season 1 spoilers follow if you haven’t already watched.
“He is reeling from the experience that happens in Jessica [Jones season 1],” Colter recently told Comic Book Resources. “And he’s trying to get himself back on track. His bar was blown up, and now, he has to start over again.
“He’s just got to figure out where he is now, and what he’s doing with his life because he wants to define himself as a man, define himself in society and try to deal with his own demons. Just like Jessica had to deal with her demons, he has to deal with his demons, and that’s where he starts. I can’t tell you much more, but it will be interesting! It will be interesting and very unique.”
Binge-watching Daredevil might get us a sneak preview of the new show, but we’ve still got a wait on our hands. Luke Cage isn’t due to reach Netflix until September 30 this year.Read More
