"Luke Cage" Movie Not Hindered by Race

by | June 17, 2007 | Comments

Director John Singleton lamented that he couldn’t get "Luke Cage" going because the studios just don’t get a black superhero. Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige suggested the problem was much simpler, and less controversial than that.

"We never got a script on Luke Cage while it was at Sony that did it justice from our point of view or John’s point of view," said Feige. "The rights to that have reverted back to Marvel and I would love to do a Luke Cage movie."

Marvel now has their own production company. Their first solo film will be "Iron Man," and they’re looking to diversify. "Looking for ways to continue Marvel movies with fresh content, with slightly different points of view, I think Luke Cage would absolutely fit into that."
