Luke Cage - Simone Missick Cast as Misty Knight

Marvel's Mercedes "Misty" Knight, the police officer-turned-superhero, will make her Netflix’s Marvel series Luke Cage has rounded out its core cast.

I’ve learned that Simone Missick has landed the younger female lead opposite Mike Colter, Alfre Woodard and Theo Rossi in the third series from Marvel’s four-series package for Netflix.

She will play what is listed on the breakdown as “Missy”, a woman with a strong sense of justice. I hear the actual character is Marvel’s Misty Knight, a former NYPD officer who gets a new bionic arm by Tony Stark after losing her in the line of duty. She eventually launches a detective agency, helping Cage (Colter).
