The cast of Luke Cage has now added Sonia Braga (Kiss of the Spider Woman) in a surprising role as the mother of one of the real fan-favourite characters in this corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Who are we talking about? You can find out after the jump...

It sounds as if Claire Temple's role in Luke Cage is going to be even bigger than expected, as Marvel has today announced that her mother will be making an appearance in the highly anticipated series. Emmy and three-time Golden Globe nominee Sonia Braga (Brothers & Sisters) is playing Soledad Temple, and Executive Producer/Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb, had this to say about the casting today. "A character as strong as Claire needs an equally powerful mother, and with Sonia we found the perfect actress to deliver the stellar performance we needed. In ‘Marvel’s Luke Cage,’ fans will now get a chance to see where Claire got the fire we love her for." Executive Producer and Showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker meanwhile also weighed in with his excitement about this latest addition to the cast. "Sonia Braga? Rosario Dawson? ‘Nuff said. I'm tuning in. When it came to finding someone who was both formidable yet possessed a light touch, Sonia was the perfect choice and has been a Godsend." Luke Cage will air next year on Netflix, though a premiere date has not yet been announced by the online streaming service.
