Colter was joined by the Academy Award winning Mahershala Ali along with Simone Missick who plays Misty Knight, Theo Rossi, Rosario Dawson, Alfre Woodard and Erik LaRay Harvey.
As many Marvel series’ do when it comes to social issues, Luke Cage attempts to explore politics and race while looking to emulate the unique realities of living in the Harlem culture. Colter specifically voiced the importance of music to match the cultural elements of Harlem. Adrien Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad composed a “90s hip-hop score” for the show.
