A pair of new hellians are heading to Harlem.
Mustafa Shakir and Gabrielle Dennis have joined the cast of Luke Cage for the show's upcoming second season on Netflix as a pair of vile Marvel villains.
Shakir has been cast as John McIver, a natural and charismatic leader and whose mission is focused on Harlem and vengeance. In the pages of Marvel Comics, McIver is known as the criminal mastermind Bushmaster. Actress Gabrielle Dennis will portray Tilda Johnson, a brilliant holistic doctor who can’t seem to steer clear of Harlem’s trouble no matter how much she tries. In the comics, Johnson is also known as Nightshade, a criminal who boasts super-genius intelligence.
The newcomers join a cast that includes Mike Colter, Simone Missick, Rosario Dawson, Alfre Woodard and Theo Rossi.
Filming is underway on the new season of the series, which is expected to arrive mid-2018. However, before that happens, Colter will reprise his heroic role for The Defenders next month.
