Colter revealed the date at the red carpet of Daredevil's season two premiere (via Comic Book). He assures fans it'll be "action packed from the beginning to the very end" when it debuts on September 30.

Luke Cage is the third Marvel Netflix series. The first, Daredevil, started last year in April, while Jessica Jones kicked off in November. Daredevil's second season starts on March 18.

Another series in the works is based on Marvel's Iron Fist character. Game of Thrones' actor Finn Jones was recently cast as the titular character, Iron Fist.

If you're hoping for the actors from the Netflix series to appear on the big screen alongside Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans, then you might end up disappointed. Marvel TV and Marvel Studios are run separately, and Daredevil actor Charlie Cox isn't certain he would be included if his character made it into the movies.
