Promoting the upcoming home video release of Halo: Nightfall, actor Mike Colter shared a few details on his upcoming turn as the Marvel street-level hero Luke Cage in Netflix's Jessica Jones. According to Colter, Cage has super strength and bulletproof skin just like he does in the pages of Marvel Comics but in Jessica Jones, Cage operates in secrecy.  "Marvel actually gives you a special training class in how not to say too much in interviews [laughs]. We’re in the middle of shooting AKA Jessica Jones and Luke Cage is a very interesting character who just happens to have super strength and unbreakable skin. He’s a neighborhood hero, very much linked to New York and Jessica Jones. It’s all part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe but Luke Cage is a darker, grittier, more tangible character than Iron Man or Thor. He likes to keep things close to his chest, operate on the hush-hush. He has these abilities but he’s not sure how and when to use them. He’s a very nuanced character."

Colter will be seen as Luke Cage in Netflix's 13-episode Marvel-Netflix miniseries, Jessica Jones, which stars Krysten Ritter as the titular character Filming is currently underway and the series is expected to stream in late-2015/early-2016.
