Netflix is keeping the ball rolling with their exclusive Marvel series Luke Cage, with season two getting a new director for its premiere episode.
According to a Marvel news release, Marvel Television and Netflix will bring actress/director Lucy Liu on board to direct the first episode. Liu has had a bit of work behind the camera with her directorial debut in 2011 with Meena. She’s not shy from TV, either, with four episodes credited to her name on CBS’s Elementary.
I wasn’t the biggest fan of Luke Cage‘s first season, which brought less substance and more fluff. The dialogue was unbelievable and corny, with nothing left to desire once actor Mahershala Ali leaves. It’s interesting to see Liu being brought onto this project, however unless the writing improves, I can’t see myself revisiting for an entire second season.
Luke Cage returns to Netflix in 2018.
