Nearly a day on from Netflix’s sudden cancellation of “Marvel’s Luke Cage,” various people linked with the series have weighed in on the news on social media outlets.
Showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker praised all those involved in bringing both seasons of the show to life: “A lot of memories. A lot of individual thank you calls to make. Just want to say thank you to Marvel, Netflix, the best Writer’s room, cast, crew, the Midnight Hour, all those who graced the stage at Harlem’s Paradise and the most incredible fan base in the world. Forward always.”
Finn Jones, whose own show “Marvel’s Iron Fist” was cancelled last week by the streamer, posted a photo of a shot from the second season of “Luke Cage” in the episode where the pair team up. Vincent D’Onofrio, who plays Kingpin in “Daredevil,” tweeted a message of support: “I think [Mike Colter] is a great guy and super talented actor. Big hug to you Mike.”
Mike Colter, who stars as Cage, has yet to post about it. Though not connected with the show, famed actor Wendell Pierce (“The Wire,” “Jack Ryan”) offered this sentiment: “I was into #LukeCage which played like a modern Syfy allegory. Of all content on Netflix they cut Luke Cage in its prime. I hope they solicit other networks & platforms to continue.”
