Simone Missick to Reprise Misty Knight Role
If you guys binge-watched all 13 episodes of the original Netflix drama Luke Cage– then you no doubt know Simone Missick’s portrayal of Misty Knight was the best thing about the series. Sure Mike Coulter was easy on the eyes and Mahershala Ali’s gritty take on Cornell Stokes gave us New Jack City flashbacks- but it was Simone’s Misty Knight that added just the right amount of vulnerability to counteract the show’s over the top testosterone-fueled bravado.
Fans hoping to see more of the character will get the chance when Simone reprises the role of Misty Knight in the upcoming Marvel spin-offs Iron Fist and The Defenders. Both shows are slated for a fall 2017 debut.
