Simone Missick has scored the younger female lead role in Netflix’s Marvel series “Luke Cage”. Mike Colter, Alfre Woodard, Rosario Dawson and Theo Rossi also star in this third of Marvel’s four-series package for Netflix.
Missick will play Missy, a woman with a strong sense of justice who is said to be based on the Marvel character Misty Knight. In the comics, Misty is a former NYPD officer who gets a new bionic arm by Tony Stark after losing hers in the line of duty. She eventually launches a detective agency, helping Cage.
Colter plays Cage, a wrongly accused man who is granted super strength by a sabotaged experiment. He escapes prison to become a superhero for hire. Rossi and Woodard play the villains Shades and Black Mariah respectively.
