I’m on the record in support of Isaiah Mustafa’s quest to star in a big-budget Luke Cage movie, so I’m glad to see he’s pressing the case:

It’s not really clear to me what Mustafa’s spin on the character would be, but honestly, as long as the movie is nominally engaged institutional failures in poor neighborhoods and the vacuum that creates for vigilantes or heroes for hire, this seems like a worthwhile project. And if Mustafa can prove there’s an engaged market for black superheroes, all the better.
