Luke Cage and Claire Temple are moving their relationship forward. New set photos from “Marvel’s The Defenders” show the two in a pretty steamy make out scene.
Pictures have been surfacing on social media since filming started in New York earlier this month, but these set photos are a little more spoiler-filled than other snapshots. The photos show Luke (Mike Colter) locking lips with Claire (Rosario Dawson). It doesn’t look like a quick peck, though. Luke has picked up Claire and pressed her against a fence while they’re kissing.
The two seemed to be starting a relationship in “Marvel’s Luke Cage” on Netflix. The drama, however, ended with Luke being taken back to jail in Georgia. Claire kissed him before he was taken away. Fans figured he would find a way out. He was always going to be a cast member on “The Defenders.” However, the set photo confirms that Luke and Claire will pick up right where they left off.
It’s not exactly clear where Luke and Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) stand. The two had a relationship on “Marvel’s Jessica Jones,” but they broke up by the end of the first season. The exes will have to put aside any lingering feelings to work together. They’re both going to team up with Daredevil (Charlie Cox) and Iron Fist (Finn Jones) to save their city in the 2017 mini series.
Claire is one of many supporting characters. As previously reported, viewers can expect Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll), Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson), Stick (Scott Glenn), Elektra (Elodie Yung), Jeri Hogarth (Carrie-Anne Moss), Malcolm Ducasse (Eka Darville), Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick), Trish Walker (Rachael Taylor) and Misty Knight (Simone Missick) to appear in “The Defenders.”
Not everyone was introduced in other Netflix series, though. Sigourney Weaver will play the drama’s villain. Her character’s name hasn’t been announced yet, but she’ll be a threat to New York.
“The Defenders” is set to hit Netflix in 2017.
