Marvel's Luke Cage and Iron Fist to Form Team on Disney Plus Series

Luke Cage is being discussed to reunite with his old pal Iron Fist on Disney Plus. Marvel Studios is apparently considering a limited series starring the streetwise duo.

On their respective Netflix shows, there was a buildup to the friendship between Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Iron Fist (Finn Jones). Many fans wondered if they would have a series together. However, when both programs were cancelled, those expectations were tossed out the window.

In the comic books, Luke Cage and Iron Fist are iconic BFFs. In 1977, they had their own comic, Power Man and Iron Fist. That series established the black guy/white guy buddy dynamic years before Hollywood took it to the bank in films like 1982’s 48 Hrs. and later the Lethal Weapon franchise.

Consequently, when both characters landed on Netflix, it seemed inevitable that the two would be paired in a TV show.

Marvel Studios has been looking for ways to reboot them for Disney Plus. As usual, Marvel Studios looks to the past to see what worked in the comics.

I have reported before on what Marvel Studios’ intentions are with Luke Cage and Iron Fist now that they have their rights back from Netflix.

They certainly intend on Colter to return but Jones most likely won’t be.


I have leaked that Iron Fist is set to be rebooted in the Shang-Chi theatrical franchise.

Nevertheless, with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige in charge of both the film and TV sides of the MCU, there will be frequent crossing over between the two.

From what I’ve heard, the plan is to follow the blueprint of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier on Disney Plus.

That show is influenced by ’80s action movies. This will be of a similar flavor but with the added spice of ’70s martial arts and blaxploitation fare.
