Luke Cage is a walking Blaxploitation stereotype. A former Harlem gang banger until he's sent to prison and experiment on for the same super solider program that created most of Marvel's superheroes. Unlike most he becomes a mercenary and bounty hunter, deals with a drug problem, and has a white girl friend. With Avengers 2 on the horizon, and a desire for an increased roster that is not quite as white washed as the original movie, Luke Cage is a bit of a shoe in. He's been around since the 70s, and has been in every incarnation of the Avengers since the 90s. Rumors have it Tyrese and the Rock want the part, along with Terry Crews. Interesting to see how he will fit since he's essentially Captian America, minus the shield and the blond hair.
Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave) getting a few looks.
