Filming just recently kicked off for Season 2 of Marvel’s Luke Cage, and speculation is already rampant that a surprise actress may have joined the cast of the superhero show.
Yesterday, Harlem Coffee Co.’s Instagram account shared a photo of the show’s titular star, Mike Coulter, posing with the coffee shop’s owner and none other than Lucy Liu.
The actress can also be seen in a selfie with the owner, who himself looks very much the part of Luke Cage.
Finally, a YouTube video also shows the actress on set while filming is taking place.
Nothing is official so there’s no word whether Liu has joined the cast, is guest directing an episode, or was even simply looking for a hot cup of joe when she came across the set. However, her presence has sparked mass speculation about who Liu could be playing if she has indeed joined the cast in an unknown role.
What do you think? If Lucy Liu is a part of the MCU, who would you like to see her play in Marvel’s Luke Cage? –Kevin Bond
