Excerpt from the article at MCU Exchange:

Now that we have been introduced to the worlds of both Daredevil and Jessica Jones, it’s time to move on to the next series in the Netflix world, Luke Cage. While we met Luke Cage (Mike Colter) himself in Jessica Jones, Marvel has assured us that each series will have it’s own tone and feel, so we can expect an entirely different feel for his series. Along with Cage, a character that many fans have been eager to see brought to life, the show will also bring another fan-favorite to the lime-light as they’ll introduce Misty Knight, portrayed by actress Simone Missick. As it stands, outside of the premiere date, the short teaser released for the series, and the confirmation of two directors, there’s still plenty we don’t know. Thankfully, with production having recently wrapped, it’s beginning to look as though that’ll begin to change over the coming months.

What did she know about Misty Knight going in? According to Missick, the answer is not very much.

No. Absolutely not… and I think that was a good thing, because so often as actors and people, you know you have an idea of what something is, and it can almost stifle what you allow for yourself to do. So going into it…it’s funny my husband and I were talking about it yesterday, ’cause every now and again it hits us we’re like “Motherfucker you're a super hero!” … This is crazy, there are only like three black female [heroes] in the Marvel Universe, it’s so small. It’s not three, but it’s small.

While discussing the scripts, Missick was quick to praise the writing staff on the show. As we’ve come to know, courtesy of Daredevil and Jessica Jones, the Netflix shows have been very strong, and most of that is because they’re built on strong writing and ideas. It looks as though this will continue with Luke Cage this September.

It’s some great writing, you’ve got some writers from Southland, theater writers, just some awesome writers, our writers room is really, really strong… Strong people who have been in the industry for a really long time crafted these just bomb-ass scripts… With storylines and language that is so indicative of black culture, of hip-hop culture.
