TV NEWS: Claire Temple’s Mom is Cast for Marvel’s Luke Cage

November 26th, 2015 by Jake Tanner Comments



Marvel recently announced that Sonia Braga will be coming to their Netflix series Luke Cage. She will be playing Claire Temple’s (Rosario Dawson) mother, Soledad Temple. We’ve already met Claire in Marvel’s first hit Netflix series, Daredevil.

“A character as strong as Claire needs an equally powerful mother, and with Sonia we found the perfect actress to deliver the stellar performance we needed,” said Executive Producer/Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb. “In ‘Marvel’s Luke Cage,’ fans will now get a chance to see where Claire got the fire we love her for.”

Luke Cage stars Mike Colter as the title character and will debut sometime in 2016.

I'm 25 years old and I'm hugely passionate about comic books and I also LOVE gaming. The birth of my daughter, Abby, rekindled my passion for comic book stories. I grew up on them and I want nothing more than to share that passion with her! I'm a pretty typical guy, I love sports. (NHL-Blackhawks, NBA-Lakers, MLB-Cubs, and NFL-Daaaa Bears!). I've been writing for a pretty big portion of my life, and I've been nominated for multiple awards for some of the poetry I’ve written! Happy reading and follow me on Twitter @xJatmanx.
