Marvel and Netflix are preparing to start production on Luke Cage in a few weeks. We haven’t really heard that much about what they are planning with the series or which characters will be involved, but Mike Colter is the actor taking on the title character.
Heroic Hollywood is reporting a rumor that they got from an inside source that one of the villains we’ll see in the series will be Cornell Cottonmouth.
I’ll be honest, I’m not really familiar with this character, but he is a drug lord who resides in New York. There have been a couple versions of the character, and I assume the one they use in the series will be a combination of the two. Here’s a description for each of those versions of the character thanks to Marvel wiki:
The first Cottonmouth has super-strength that rivals Luke Cage. He also has sharp teeth that he had sharpened to resemble fangs. Cottonmouth also has a good knowledge of the different poisons.
Due to bionic reconstruction, the second Cottonmouth possesses enhanced jaw and neck muscles, and steel teeth enabling him to bite with sufficient force to crush cinderblock or deform metals softer than iron; to hang from a rope by his teeth for up to an hour, and to open his mouth larger than the size of a human head. His teeth (including abnormally large canines) have been replaced by steel, and his jaw and neck have been bionically enhanced and specially hinged to enable his mouth to open larger than the size of a human head, and he has superhuman strength in his jaw muscles.
There's no confirmation that Cottonmouth will actually be a villain in the series, but it wouldn't surprise me if he was. I'm not sure what exactly to expect from these other Marvel and Netflix series, but the awesomeness of Daredevil definitely got me excited for them.
