Photos from Marvel’s latest upcoming Netflix series have Rosario Dawson, Simone Missick, and a possible death.

If you haven’t been watching this season of Marvel’s Jessica Jones on Netflix, you might not be familiar with Jones’ on-again, off-again boyfriend in the series (slash husband) in the comics, Luke Cage, or the fact that he has a Netflix series of his own currently in production. Well, he does, and by all early indications it is going to be damn good.

Coming to Netflix in April (Or May. Or maybe the fall. No one really knows yet), Luke Cage tells the story of an ex-convict who acquires superpowers through, get this, an experiment gone awry. Have you heard this? Can you believe this? Sounds a bit far-fetched, if you ask me.

Anyways, the official synopsis of the upcoming show is below:

When a sabotaged experiment gives him super strength and unbreakable skin, Luke Cage becomes a fugitive attempting to rebuild his life in Harlem and must soon confront his past and fight a battle for the heart of his city.

Starring the frustratingly good-looking Mike Colter as Cage, the series will also bring in Rosario Dawson’s Claire Temple/Night Nurse from Netflix’s *other* two Marvel series’, Daredevil and Jessica Jones, as well as Alfre Woodard (as Mariah Dillard), Simone Missick (as Misty Knight), and Frank Whaley (as Detective Scarfe).

A handful of photos from the set of Luke Cage were released earlier today, featuring all of the aforementioned cast in their charming, chisel-faced glory. Not to spoil anything, but it looks like one of them might bite the dust early.

Check ’em out.
