Marvel's Luke Cage has added another villain to make trouble for Mike Colter's Power Man when his series premieres on Netflix next year. Earlier today, the studio announced that the show has added Mahershala Ali (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay; House Of Cards) as Cornell "Cottonmouth" Stokes. This iteration of the character is described as a Harlem nightclub owner, who will become an unexpected foe in Cage's life after his criminal ongoings begin to threaten Luke's world. Ali joins a cast that already features Colter (Jessica Jones) as the titular hero, Simone Missick (Ray Donovan) as Misty Knight, Alfre Woodard (12 Years A Slave) as Black Mariah, Theo Rossi (Sons Of Anarchy) as Shades, and Rosario Dawson (Daredevil) as Claire Temple.

Production has been under way on Season 2 of Marvel's Daredevil since early July, and we've already gotten our first official look at Jon Bernthal as The Punisher. With shooting still happening in New York, Jon Bernthal shared a new photo from the set on his Twitter page earlier today, which reveals part of his massive arsenal of weaponry. As you can see in the image below, Frank Castle is well-equipped to defend himself in the new season of this Netflix series.
Back in May 2013, Marvel won back the rights to The Punisher franchise, along with Ghost Rider and Blade. While Frank Castle is set to appear on Daredevil Season 2, a rumor surfaced in June that claims Netflix is developing new TV shows for Blade, Ghost Rider and Punisher, so we may be seeing a lot more of Frank Castle after his run on Marvel's Daredevil. Then again, that report was never confirmed, »
Mahershala Ali, who plays morally flexible Remy Danton on Netflix’s inaugural original drama, has been cast on the streamer’s Marvel’s Luke Cage superhero series as Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes, a Harlem nightclub owner whose criminal activities position him as an adversary for the title character (played by The Good Wife’s Mike Coulter).
Other rumored cast additions for “Luke Cage” include Alfre Woodard as a powerful politician who impacts Luke’s life (possibly as an iteration of the comic book character Black Mariah); Theo Rossi as street criminal Shades, aka Alvarez; Simone Missick, who may be playing Marvel comic book character Misty Knight, and Rosario Dawson, who is expected to reprise her role as Claire Temple following appearances in “Daredevil” and “Jessica Jones.”

"Sons of Anarchy" alum Theo Rossi has joined the series as Shades (a.k.a. Alvarez), an antagonist of the titular hero and well-known criminal who's described as "relentless and menacing, smooth and manipulative, street smart and controlling," per The Hollywood Reporter.
In addition to Rossi, Rosario Dawson, who played Claire Temple on "Daredevil," will reprise that role for "Cage." THR notes that Claire serves as a love interest for Cage in the comics, though she's already filling that role for the titular character on "Daredevil," so it remains to be seen if that will also be the plan with this new series.

Marvel and Netflix's Luke Cage series seems a long way off, not least because Jessica Jones - the next team-up between the studio and the streaming service - hasn't even reached our screens yet. However, that hasn't stopped the powers-that-be from releasing some casting information for Luke Cage's show.
The most interesting of these announcements is the addition of Simone Missick - previously seen in Black Card, Everything I Did Wrong In My 20s and A Taste Of Romance - to the cast. According to Marvel, she'll play Missy, "a woman with a strong sense of justice."
Deadline have been quick to report that she's actually playing Misty Knight. This has been echoed on Missick's IMDb page.
A Marvel Comics hero in her own right, Misty is »
In the second bit of Luke Cage casting news for today, Deadline reports that Simone Missik (Ray Donovan, Everything I Did Wrong in My 20s) will play the female lead role of “Missy,” who will actually be an incarnation of Marvel Comics character, Misty Knight.
In the source material, Misty is a former NYPD officer who loses her arm in the line of duty, and is given a vibranium (the same metal as Captain America’s shield) one by Tony Stark as a replacement.

Whether something like that happens on the show remains to be seen, but she will apparently still be a cop, and will reluctantly team with Mike Colter’s Cage to take down the bad guys: Alfre Woodard as a variation on Black Mariah, and the new addition of Theo Rossi as Shades.

Netflix's Luke Cage series continues to shore up its cast, with the addition of Simone Missick, who Deadline reports has landed the female lead opposite Mike Colter, playing a variation of Misty Knight. According to the Marvel wiki, Misty was seriously injured preventing a bomb attack back when she was a police officer with the NYPD. Her right arm was amputated and rather than take a desk job, she resigned from the police force. Tony Stark (Iron Man) provided her a bionic arm which endowed her superhuman strength. She's been affiliated with Iron Fist, and of course Luke Cage (and other Marvel superheroes). In the Netflix series, she launches a detective agency, helping Cage. Misty Knight's skills include superhuman strength, to start. Missick (whose most recently co-starred with husband/actor Dorian Missick in Pete Chatmon's 'Black Card') joins Theo Rossi and Rosario Dawson, who were added to »

It appears that Sons of Anarchy alum Theo Rossi will find himself playing an outlaw again. The actor has joined the cast of Marvel’s Luke Cage as a series regular. Deadline, which broke the casting news, is reporting that Rossi will be Luke Cage’s enemy Shades (Aka Alvarez), a well-known criminal described as “relentless and menacing, smooth and manipulative, street smart and controlling.” As mentioned above, Rossi just finished a seven-season run as Samcro member Juice on FX’s Sons of Anarchy when the series wrapped back in December.
