Well, it seems Luke Cage has found his second villain in the Netflix/Marvel TV Show after the casting of Alfre Woodward as (probably) Black Mariah (here).

Yes, it seems that Sons Of Anarchy’s Theo Rossi will play the villain shades in the series. It has also been confirmed by Deadline that Rosario Dawson will return  as Claire Temple, having played the character in Daredevil earlier this year.

“Created by Goodwin and George Tuska, Shades made his first appearance all the way back in 1972 in the premiere issue of “Luke Cage, Hero for Hire.” A convicted felon, Shades and his partner in crime, Comanche, escaped prison and came into possession of a visor that enables him to shoot optic blasts.

Looks like it’s not just the top line villains that will inhabit the Marvel/Netflix TV MCUniverse.

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….
