As pictures of Marvel’s new television flick Jessica Jones hit Twitter and Instagram, hot American actor Mike Colter got his own share of praise. The Million Dollar Baby Big Willie Little has already started making his impact on media. The Hardcore Jessica Jones fans are already eagerly waiting for the American web television series of the  beloved comic book character. The live-action TV series is sure to add a new flavor to the ever-so-popular Marvel Universe. Krysten Ritter plays the titular role in the series which is set to premiere on Netflix this year.

Despite a huge cast of great actors like Doctor Who favorite David Tennant as the villainous Zebediah Kilgrave, Carrie-Anne Moss as “Harper” and Transformers star Rachael Taylor as Patsy “Hellcat” Walker, Eka Darville as Jessica’s neighbor, Erin Moriarty as a client, and Wil Traval as a police officer, the University of South Carolina alum, Mike Colter has already won hundreds of thousands of hearts. In this tale of retired superhero (Jones of course), who hangs up her tights after a seriously traumatic incident and becomes a private investigator, Mike Colter plays the role of Luke Cage. Cage is also a super hero and an ally and love interest of the ex-superheroine. Mike has awesomely portrayed the role of a streetwise brawler who makes a business out of being a superhero. Mike with his gigantic body and unbeatable strength looks perfect for the part of this superhero with unbreakable skin and super strength.

New images from Jessica Jones have recently emerged, revealing a scene where Cage exits a building, his body engulfed in flames. The picture which was posted on Twitter was captioned: “LUKE CAGE is on fire with JESSICA JONES in first official 'JESSICA JONES' stills!”

 He is seen strolling casually as the raging inferno fails to harm him. But actually, the man exiting from the building is not Colter but his body double. Despite everything, the picture is really iconic and there is no doubt that Marvel has cast an extremely talented actor as Luke Cage. Colter will appear as the famous Marvel strongman in 6-7 episodes, before leading his own show into The Defenders teamup miniseries. We are all sure that he’s going to nail it.

He obtained an MFA degree in acting from the Rutgers University Mason Gross School of the Arts. He is always known for his shy nature. He is married to Iva Colter. Unlike other Hollywood celebrities, he hardly gets involved in anykind of affairs. He likes to stay away from media. He is most popularly known for his physique and well toned abs and biceps. 

Another picture of the on-screen duo was released online where the Krysten Ritter aka Jessica Jones is seen riding on Luke Cage’s motorcycle.

Despite sharing romantic relationship in the Marvel Universe, we’re not sure exactly what relationship Luke Cage and Jessica Jones will have on Netflix’s series. So, it would be quite interesting to watch them on-screen as Jessica Jones tries to rebuild her life as a private eye, dealing with cases involving people with remarkable abilities in New York City.
