LUKE CAGE Supporting Character Misty Knight Confirmed To Appear In THE DEFENDERS

We'll meet Simone Missick's Misty Knight for the first time in Luke Cage this Friday, but the actress has confirmed in a new interview that she'll be reprising the role in upcoming spinoff The Defenders.

A number of supporting characters from Daredevil and Jessica Jones have already been confirmed as appearing in The Defenders, but we can now add someone from the world of Luke Cage. Talking to The Wrap in a recent interview, Simone Missick let it slip that she will reprise the role of Misty Knight in the highly anticipated team-up series which begins shooting in New York City a little later this year. 

"I believe I’m safe to say that I will be on ‘The Defenders,'" she confirmed. "Spoiler alert! If I lose my job because of this interview, sorry! I was supposed to be on ‘The Defenders,’ until I got fired." 

Jeph Loeb previously revealed that we'll also see Misty in Luke Cage, so it appears as if the character is about to become a key part of this corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Whether or not she'll get her bionic arm and set out on the path of a superhero at some point remains to be seen for now. 

In Luke Cage, Misty Knight is a no-nonsense cop who grew up in the streets of Harlem. She starts investigating when reports of a man with super strength begin surfacing, putting her on a collision course with Colter’s bulletproof superhero Luke Cage.
