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…
