“I can tell you what they’ve allowed me to, which is basically, Luke Cage will take place a few months after Jessica Jones,” he explained. “So in real time, if you watch ‘Jessica Jones,’ you’ll find [at the end] Luke Cage uptown in Harlem, working, trying to make ends meet. Luke Cage really hasn’t figured out what he’s doing. He’s tending bar, he’s bouncing around. And for good reason, he’s a fugitive, he has some skeletons in his closet.”
“He’s trying to basically stay off the radar. The people he hangs around with, though, are in need. Ultimately, he’d rather be alone, but with the way he’s equipped he does step up. That’s what it’s about, it’s about finding that inner feeling to make you want to take action. Sometimes we just sit around, and sit on our hands and don’t do anything because it’s like ‘Hey, that’s not my problem.’ You can’t do that when you’re a superhero. You have these gifts, now use them,” he added.
