Is it true that Luke Cage has already been cast for this show?
That's an old rumor. There was a speculation a month or two back that J. August Richards's character in the pilot was Cage, but that was disproven.


I just found this article:
http://shieldtv.net/agents-of-s-h-i-...-magazine/3039

It quotes the upcoming Entertainment Weekly article about Whedon and the show, which contains the following passage:
Then we’re off to the top-secret set of S.H.I.E.L.D., which brings the sprawling Marvel universe to television for the first-ever live-action series in the company’s 74-year history.
What??? Aren't they forgetting the '70s Incredible Hulk and Amazing Spider-Man, or Blade: The Series from 2006? Not to mention the '70s Doctor Strange and Captain America pilots, the '90s pilots for Power Pack, Generation X, and Nick Fury: Agent of SHIELD, and the '00s Man-Thing pilot movie.
