Sons of Anarchy alumni Theo Rossi (Juan Carlos “Juice” Ortiz) now has an official poster for his role as Shades in Marvel’s Luke Cage, and all of you SOA Fanatics are the lucky few who get to see it first! Not only do we have the exclusive on the poster, but we’ll be sharing the first Luke Cage trailer at the very end of this post – the very trailer that was released at this summer’s Comic Con 2016!
Luke Cage, is Netflix’s newest Marvel series, and the third installment to the four-part comic book based series. As we’ve revealed in the past, Shades is Luke Cage’s well known enemy, as well as a career criminal. He was born and raised in Harlem, NY – not far off from Theo’s real-life hometown of Staten Island, NY. Shades acquired his name quite simply; he’s always preferred to wear a pair of designer sunglasses, which became his trademark in the Marvel world. While he possesses the normal human strength of a man his age, Shades engages in exercise to maintain his fighting stature.
Check out the first look at Theo as Shades, as well as the exciting first trailer for the series below, and tell us in the comments how excited you are that we’re getting closer and closer to the premiere of the much-anticipated series! Luke Cage premieres on Netflix on September 30, 2016. Theo co-stars alongside Mike Colter, Frank Whaley, Mahershala Ali, Simone Missick and Alfre Woodard.
