One of the most anticipated characters to debut on the Marvel Netflix shows is Luke Cage, who will first be appearing in Jessica Jones before the standalone series.

Halo: Nightfall's Mike Colter is playing Luke Cage, who offers up some tidbits while talking with the UK's The List.

Marvel actually gives you a special training class in how not to say too much in interviews [laughs]. We’re in the middle of shooting AKA Jessica Jones and Luke Cage is a very interesting character who just happens to have super strength and unbreakable skin. He’s a neighborhood hero, very much linked to New York and Jessica Jones. It’s all part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe but Luke Cage is a darker, grittier, more tangible character than Iron Man or Thor. He likes to keep things close to his chest, operate on the hush-hush. He has these abilities but he’s not sure how and when to use them. He’s a very nuanced character.

Colter also previously said Luke Cage is geared more toward adults, which will be a differen take than the MCU.

The Jessica Jones series is set to debut later this year starring Krysten Ritter as the titular character, David Tennant as Kilgrave, Rachael Taylor as Trish and Carrie-Anne Moss in an unknown role

Jessica Jones Synopsis:

After a tragic ending to her short-lived super hero stint, Jessica Jones is rebuilding her personal life and career as a detective who gets pulled into cases involving people with extraordinary abilities in New York City.
