Mike Colter was speaking at Denver Comic Con on 3rd July 2017. He teased about ‘The Defenders’ which premieres on 18th August 2017. He said that this Marvel’s team-up series debut is a summer bash of all four of the cast members. It has a certain element of lightness and fun to it and is funny. He added that the show closely resembles a ‘summer popcorn thing’. The series would have 8 episodes. In it, all the Marvel’s Netflix megastars, namely, Iron Fist (Finn Jones), Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), and Luke Cage (Mike Colter) would be seen. Their mission is to protect New York City from the evildoers. Sigourney Weaver plays the mysterious and villainous character of Alexandra in the series. Hope that the storyline is substantial with really great foes for all these 4 characters together!

His great on-screen chemistry with Rosario Dawson

In June 2017, Mike Colter was snapped shooting a kissing scene with American actress-producer and comic book writer Rosario Dawson. Mike was in a black suit with patterned yellow tie. He also had a goatee. Rosario was gorgeous in a black top with patterned pants and boots. Her black locks were let loose and down. In the scene, they were seen arguing first, after which they get close and go into a passionate moment, embracing and kissing each other. In a 2016 interview, Mike had revealed that he has a cordial and strong work relationship with Rosario. He said:

“I love Rosario, we get along great. I love working with her, so hopefully we’ll see more of her and we’ll see some interesting twists and turns with her character.”

His new next venture

All the 13 episodes of Marvel’s first season of ‘Luke Cage’ were well received by the audience. The sophomore season of this show would premiere in early 2018; the exact date is still undecided. It will have Mike Colter as Luke Cage. The other characters would also be retained. There will be two more additions to the series. These would be Gabrielle Dennis and Mustafa Shakir.

This role is that of a brilliant, holistic doctor who always seems to fall into trouble. Actor-writer Shakir plays the character of ‘John McIver’ who is a charismatic natural leader whose mission is focused on Harlem, New York City, and vengeance.

His wife’s take on his roles

Mike Colter had worked hard at the gym at night-time and also googled a lot to imbibe the knowledge of how to gain muscle. He did the workouts for 1 year and the result was significant. He put on 35 lbs and an impressive body for his role of Luke Cage. In this role, he has women around him who demonstrate a keen interest in him. However, in 2016 Mike Colter had revealed that in real-life, things are a lot tamer. He joked:

“No. In real life I’ve been married for fifteen years now. So no one is throwing themselves at me right now. I’m a kept cat. I’m a house cat.”

He added that his lovely wife Iva is not bothered that he is playing such an iconic character on screen. Talking about it, Mike said:

“I’m still the guy who mostly leaves the toilet seat up and sometimes forgets to take the garbage out and says he’s going to do things and doesn’t do ‘em. Don’t fold the clothes that I said I was going to fold and didn’t do it.”
