About a month or so back, Luke Cage Season 2 landed on Netflix, and with it came the much-talked-about 10th episode “The Main Ingredient,” which saw the return of one Danny Rand to the frontlines of the battle for New York. In the episode, Danny ends up in Luke’s barber shop, offering his help to Luke, who is in real desperate need of a friendly face.
To many, this episode seemed to begin the redemption for the character, and made us all the more hungry to see Heroes for Hire on the small screen yet again. While a full-on Heroes for Hire series isn’t in the cards just yet, there was always a chance of seeing Luke Cage show up in Iron Fist Season 2, right?
Sadly, while attending a roundtable with Iron Fist star Finn Jones, the British actor confirmed that Power Man himself will NOT be in the next season, but he expressed his enthusiasm for another reunion down the line, saying:
“Well, Mike isn’t in Season 2, unfortunately. I wish he was, I love working with Mike. I hope to see more Heroes for Hire in the future. I think it’s a great pairing, I think Heroes For Hire and Daughters of the Dragon is just gold! So hopefully that will happen later on down the line, but right now we’re just focusing on a true Iron Fist story.”
Sorry, folks. You’ll have to keep your Heroes for Hire tees in storage for just a bit longer, but better late than early, right? Marvel has already proven that the key to building a better super franchise is to give it time to build, right? With these series having no end in sight, there is plenty of time for them to team up in the near future.
