It’s not all that we want from our superhero movies and TV series – great characters, action and storytelling wouldn’t go amiss – but comic book fans do love to pick out brief lines or visuals that harken back to the source material. It’s a fun game played between the makers and the viewers that can sometimes go on long after release (e.g. Batman V Superman).
In particular, Marvel’s Netflix shows are great for this. Though they star grittier versions of the heroes from the comics, they still feature many a nod to the stuff on the page. Or, indeed, the movies that they share a universe with.
While it isn’t as jam-packed with call-backs and obscure nods as other shows, Luke Cage still features a number of fun easter eggs and easily-missed references to the comic books and other MCU works. Here, you’ll find the 10 most interesting that we spotted. If you have another, be sure to let us know in the comments. section
