Misty Knight Secretly Cast in the Upcoming Luke Cage TV Show!
Casting announcements have been flying around the past week or so for the upcoming Luke Cage show on Netflix, and while I didn’t really know any of the characters or actors announced, we’ve finally got a live one here! It seems that the show will feature Misty Knight, another established superhero in the Marvel Universe!
Misty Knight will be played by actor Simone Missick, who I’ve never heard of, but I’m sure will do a fine job. Marvel and Netflix have this casting thing down pat!
Deadline made the catch after a casting call listed the character as ‘Missy’.
Misty Knight is a badass former cop who lost an arm in the line of duty, then had it replaced by Tony Stark with an awesome bionic arm. No word on whether or not the bionic arm will also be in the show, but adding Misty Knight to the Netflix universe sounds awesome to me! And perhaps she’ll guest star in the eventual Iron Fist series, since they’re romantic partners in the comics.
