Talking with Luke. Mike Colter spent some time hanging out with fans on a Netflix-run live Facebook video on Wednesday. Please note his awesome shirt. He talks about Luke Cage, answers fan questions, and oh hey, Daredevil (Charlie Cox) and Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) stop by virtually to mostly give Colter a hard time. They’re gonna kill The Defenders.
Spin This. The soundtrack of Marvel’s Luke Cage is a thing of beauty. It enriches the story in such a way that it may as well be its own character. And appropriately, Mondo is issuing the soundtrack on vinyl with striking artwork by Matthew Woodson. Get more info on the vinyl release at Nerdist. [Image: Mondo]
Ears and Eyes. Amazon dropped by NYCC on Thursday and announced they’ve placed a 10-episode order for Lore.
