Marvel Television and Netflix announced that Mustafa Shakir (The Deuce, The Night Of) and Gabrielle Dennis (Insecure, Rosewood) have joined the cast in the sophomore season of Marvel’s Luke Cage, set to premiere in 2018. All 13-episodes of the first season of MARVEL’S LUKE CAGE are now streaming on Netflix.

Mustafa Shakir

Shakir has been cast as ‘John McIver,’ a natural leader, brimming with charisma, whose mission is focused on Harlem and vengeance. In the comics, McIver is also known as the supervillian called Bushmaster.

Dennis will play the role of ‘Tilda Johnson‘ who is a brilliant, holistic doctor with a complicated history in Harlem where, as much as she tries to stay far from trouble, it seems to always find her. The character has been called Nightshade and Nighthawk in the comics.

Gabrielle Dennis

“Mustafa’s incredible presence and power ignited us from our first meeting, and Gabrielle brings the charm and smarts to a very complicated role,” remarked executive producer, Jeph Loeb. “Both will be wonderful additions to our already magnificent cast.”

“I can’t wait for audiences to see the compelling paces we put both Mustafa and Gabrielle through,”
said Marvel’s Luke Cage executive producer and showrunner, Cheo Hodari Coker. “From the moment you see each of them on screen, I feel they will be powerful additions to the world of Marvel and Harlem’s Luke Cage.”

Shakir and Dennis will join returning cast members Mike Colter as ‘Luke Cage,’ Simone Missick as ‘Misty Knight,’ Rosario Dawson as ‘Claire Temple,’ Alfre Woodard as ‘Mariah Dillard,’ and Theo Rossi as ‘Shades.’

Luke Cage can next be seen in Marvel’s The Defenders, which is out on 18th August.
