Alfre Woodard may connect Captain America: Civil War and Netflix’s Luke Cage…

April 6th, 2016 by Marc Comments


Ok, so it’s no secret that Scrooged actress Alfre Woodard is in the upcoming Netflix Luke Cage series, with rumour being that she’s the big bad.

Well now there’s a new interesting turn of events. In Luke Cage Woodard is playing Mariah Dillard, a New York Politician who is rumoured to become Cage’s enemy Black Mariah. Now Marvel have confirmed that Woodward is also in Captain America: Civil War.

Now we have reported before that the MCU’s movie and TV sides aren’t as connected as we’d like but this could be a step in the right direction.

Perhaps having Dillard in Civil War will help build up to why she becomes a villain in Luke Cage?

We’d like that. A lot.

On a side note, Community’s Dean, actor Jim Rash (below), will have a role in Civil War too… which, given that the Russo brothers cut their teeth on the series, makes some sense.

So there you have it, Luke Cage and Civil War may be linked after all…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
