There’s a moment partway through Mr. Robot’s season 3’s thrilling fifth episode that is undeniably cathartic.

A crowd of protestors is gathered around Evil Corp’s Midtown headquarters, protesting….well, everything. Protesting Evil Corp’s role in the financial crash, protesting the U.N. Security Council’s upcoming vote to annex the Congo to China (which passes), protesting because it just feels good to yell when unemployment is at 26% and the world is going to shit all around you.

Protestors have been gathered outside of the

Mike Colter teases Heroes for Hire in Luke Cage season 2

As revealed earlier this month, Mike Colter’s Power Man won’t be the only Defender appearing in the second season of Marvel’s Luke Cage, with Finn Jones set to reprise his role as Iron Fist in what could potentially be the start of the two characters’ Heroes for Hire partnership.

While details on Jones’ level of involvement are being kept under wraps, Colter has been chatting to Black Film about Danny Rand’s inclusion in the new season:

“He will bring some fresh blood in the new season and I’m hoping that people will respond to it well,” said Colter. “We are teamed up for a bit. That’s the whole point of bringing that flavor to it. I can see how this works. That’s what good about it. We’re giving people what they want. A lot of times people wanted to see Jessica Jones

The Heroes For Hire Come To Blows In Latest Set Photos For Luke Cage Season 2

Marvel’s Heroes for Hire aren’t known for seeing eye to eye – not first, at least.

That’s a tension we saw take hold in The Defenders, when Luke Cage and Iron Fist first crossed paths, much to the delight of Marvel’s comic book audience. But with The Hand reeling and Midland Circle reduced to rubble, those street-level heroes – along with Daredevil and Jessica Jones – are now preparing to circle back to their own individual series.

Then again, this being a Marvel joint, there is always room for a crossover and sure enough, Mike Colter has already gone on record about a potential Heroes for Hire arc in Luke Cage season 2. Filming is now underway on the streets of New York City, and fan site FinnJones.com has relayed another helping of set photos to prove it. Embedded below, these action shots see Danny Rand and Luke Cage

Mike Colter Teases Heroes For Hire Arc In Luke Cage Season 2

It was inevitable that Marvel and Netflix would get to the Heroes For Hire eventually. You can’t have Luke Cage and Iron Fist serving on the same team and not tackle their long running crime fighting partnership from the comics at some point, right? Well, now that the pair have met for the first time in this summer’s The Defenders, Power Man and Danny Rand will indeed cross paths again in the upcoming second season of Luke Cage, as was revealed last month.

It wasn’t clear from the promo image we got (see below) whether the pair would formally found the Heroes For Hire organization in the next outing of the show, but some new comments that Mike Colter’s made go a long way to confirming that, yes, it’s definitely on the cards.

The Best Dramas on Netflix, Ranked

The Best Dramas on Netflix, Ranked
Netflix first proved itself to be a real contender in original content starting with “House of Cards,” followed soon after with “Orange Is the New Black” and the bonkers “Hemlock Grove.” Since then, it’s expanded its drama slate to include sci-fi, superhero shows, international stories, period dramas, and whatever “The Oa” is.

The variety of offerings are as wide as the emotions they elicit. While many of these series have some lighter, humorous moments, their main intent is not to inspire laughter but instead provoke thought, fear, wonder, melancholy, anger, and joy. But in the end, they just plain entertain.

‘Luke Cage’: 6 Reasons Why Iron Fist Dropping by for Season 2 Might Not Be the Worst Idea Ever

‘Luke Cage’: 6 Reasons Why Iron Fist Dropping by for Season 2 Might Not Be the Worst Idea Ever
The second season of “Luke Cage” appears to be coming together nicely, but the latest news might be cause for concern. According to an EW report and photo, Danny Rand (Finn Jones) — the Immortal Iron Fist, Protector of K’un L’un, Sworn Enemy of the Hand — will be dropping by for reasons that have remained unclear for now.

IndieWire has not been shy about its disdain for the drearily one-note “Iron Fist,” but at this point, it’s almost too easy to pile on the gripes and it’s become boring as well. Yes, the character (and to an extent, the acting) has been problematic, but in the interests of trying to keep an open mind and playing devil’s advocate to the knee-jerk resistance to all things Iron Fist, we’ve racked our brains to figure out the upside to this development.

The Defenders is Netflix’s least-watched Marvel series in its first month

After more than two years of build, Netflix brought its four street-level Marvel heroes together last month as the streaming service assembled Charlie Cox’s Daredevil, Krysten Ritter’s Jessica Jones, Mike Colter’s Luke Cage and Finn JonesIron Fist for The Defenders.

While Marvel and Netflix were surely hoping this would be their small screen version of The Avengers, the miniseries met with a mixed reception from fans and critics, and now comes word that it has failed to live up to the success of its predecessors in terms of viewership.

Unlike TV networks, Netflix doesn’t reveal exact viewing figures for its shows, but according to marketing analytics agency Jumpshot, The Defenders enjoyed just 17% of the viewership of Daredevil season 2 – Netflix’s best-performing Marvel season – in its first 30 days. For comparison, Iron Fist, Luke Cage and Jessica Jones managed 28%, 27% and 26% respectively. The stats also show that The Defenders

On Hollywood Game Night, two contestants play party games with celebrities to try to win up to $25,000. Jane Lynch returns as host.

First Official Still For Luke Cage Season 2 Sheds Light On Misty’s Bionic Arm

Entertainment Weekly has today unveiled our first official look at season 2 of Luke Cage and with it, Misty Knight’s bionic arm.

In what may be considered a slight spoiler for The Defenders, below you’ll see Simone Missick’s daughter of the dragon standing alongside Harlem’s Hero For Hire (Mike Colter) replete with her prosthetic arm, which was given to her following that stomach-churning clash between Misty and Ramón Rodríguez’s big bad, Bakuto. He’s one of the high-profile members of the Hand, a Hydra-like organization that has extended its tentacles of corruption into every major corporation in New York City, beginning with Midland Circle.

As those who’ve already caught all eight episodes of The Defenders will know, Misty Knight’s arc in the Marvel/Netflix ensemble series ends with her in hospital. Flanked by Danny Rand (Finn Jones) and his kick-ass ally Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick
