Less than a day out from the premiere of the full season of Marvel’s “Luke Cage,” actress Simone Missick has confirmed that her NYPD cop character and hero Misty Knight is set to return.
Speaking with The Wrap, she revealed that her character will resurface in next year’s superhero team-up series “The Defenders” which brings together Luke Cage (Mike Colter), Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), and Iron Fist (Finn Jones). She told the outlet:
“I believe I’m safe to say that I will be on The Defenders. Spoiler alert. If I lose my job because of this interview, sorry! I was supposed to be on The Defenders, until I got fired.”
The character in “Luke Cage” is a Harlem police officer who comes into Luke’s orbit when she begins investigating reports of a man with special powers.
“The Defenders” is expected to bring in supporting players from the various series including actors like Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), Eka Darville (Malcolm Ducasse) and Rachael Taylor (Trish Walker) along with a likely appearance by Jon Bernthal (The Punisher).
