Netflix/Marvel’s Luke Cage is back an we could not be happier. Everyone’s favorite Harlem hero in a hoodie with bulletproof skin and super strength, is back walking the streets. This time around he’s going to need more than super powers to take down the villains that threaten his home turf. In fact it is the villains showcased in the second season of the series that really add the depth and power to the series. Although most of them are larger than life, two of them, Shades (Theo Rossi) and Comanche (Thomas Q. Jones) have actually been intimate with each other.

Shades Luke Cage

Shades, as you recall, is a hired gun who worked for Cottonmouth in the first season, but by the season’s end he aligned himself with Black Mariah (Alfre Woodard), becoming her lieutenant and boy toy. In a surprising twist of events in Season 2, Shades brings on his childhood best friend, Comanche, as his right hand man. As their bond is explored we learn not only did they have each other’s backs, but were intimate while in prison.

Until episode six, “The Basement,” where it is revealed that they were lovers in prison as well as being childhood friends. While Shades has processed their relationship jail as one of comfort in a dark place, Comanche makes it clear that who was in prison wasn’t a cover it’s who he is.

Comanche: We are more than that. Or did you forget that shit, too?

Shades: Inside was inside. Lack of human interaction. Lack of trust. We did what we had to do to keep from going crazy.

Comanche: We didn’t have to do shit. I wanted to. You did, too.

Shades: Life inside is inside. Prison has its own set of rules that no one in the outside world would ever understand. We’re out now. It’s different. I’m different, we’re different.

Comanche: I ain’t different. Inside, outside; I am who I am, B.

Shades: What do you want me to say?

Comanche: Come on, man. Cat’s out here getting their heads cut off. Maybe we survive, maybe we don’t. I’m just saying how I feel.

Shades: I would die for you, Che. That’ll never change. But it is what it is.

For Shades it seems his gay tryst with Comanche was situational for their time in prison. It is not the first time we have heard of guys beign “prison gay.” Theo Rossi has come forward to state that Comanche is in fact the true love of Shades’ life in an interview with SyFy.com:

Caught in the middle of the action is Shades’ long-time friend, partner, and “the love of his life,” Darius “Comanche” Jones (Thomas Q. Jones). Rossi says Comanche was Shades’ heart, his true soulmate, so when Shades finds it necessary to kill Comanche to protect Mariah’s (and his own) interests in Episode 7, “On and On,” he ends up inflicting permanent damage to himself.

Either way this is very progressive. Marvel continues to push the envelope with its characters and Luke Cage. What do you guys think of Shades and Comanche’s relationship? Sound off in the comments’ section below!

Tatiana Masleny cast as “She-Hulk” in Disney+ series

The project is just one of a handful of anticipated series Marvel Studios is working on for Disney+, with The Falcon and Winter Soldier, WandaVision and Loki all in production and set to bow in the next year.

Maslany also becomes the latest female talent to lead a Marvel project following in the footsteps of Brie Larson in Captain Marvel and Scarlett Johansson in the upcoming Black Widow movie. Marvel head Kevin Feige has made it his mission to diversify the MCU and this latest addition to the universe does just that.

Best known for her Emmy-winning role in Orphan Black, Maslany is coming off her highly-lauded role in HBO’s Perry Mason opposite Matthew Rhys. On the film side she has been seen in the Lionsgate pic Stronger and Destroyer. She appeared on Broadway opposite Bryan Cranston and Tony Goldwyn in 2018’s Network.

she-hulk

She-Hulk is the first cousin of Bruce Banner, better known as The Incredible Hulk. In the comics, her origins lie in an accident where she was horribly injured and an emergency blood transfusion from her cousin caused her to transform into an eight foot tall, statuesque female version of the Hulk endowed with all of his amazing abilities. She has also been a long running member of both the Fantastic Four and The Avengers.

However, unlike The Hulk she retains her intelligence and her strength does not increase dramatically with rage. She also exhibits the ability to “break the fourth wall,” or talk directly to the audience because she is aware she is a comic book character.

We think Tatiana will be a great Jennifer Walters/She-Hulk and are really glad more superheroes are coming to the MCU. We are not sure what major villain will mark Phase 4 for Marvel, but now there are two Hulks for them to deal with! “SHE-HULK SMASH!”

The third season of FX’s hit series, “Pose” is set to resume filming in October and a new twist has been added! The story will time jump four years into the future to 1994!

The time jump was confirmed by one of the series’ creators, Steve Canalis, in addition to Blanca Evangelista, gaining a new love interest.

“Thematically it’s much of the same — our heroes navigating New York and this time it’s New York of 1994,” Canals revealed. “One big thing is Blanca finds love. A large part of Blanca’s arc for the season is the push and pull of being both a partner and a mom. How do you balance all these multiple roles? Blanca has always been so devoted and focused on her children…She’s finally focusing on her herself and going for her goals in a way we’re really never seen for her. We’ll be exploring the ripple effects [of that choice]. How does that then impact her children?” Jeremy Pope, who’s in the running for a Best Actor in a Limited Series or Movie Emmy for his work on Hollywood, will play Blanca’s love interest, Christopher.

As you recall the second season ended having time jumped briefly to 1990 with the most of the characters going their separate ways or facing a new normal. Damon returned to France where he is the house father to a Parisian branch of the House of Evangelista, Ricky found himself in a committed relationship with Pray Tell, Papi and Angel got engaged and went to Europe for the latter’s modeling career, Blanca was seen taking in two new children (Quincy and Shelly) while recovering from a lung infection brought on by her HIV with Pray Tell in tow; and finally Lulu and Elektra returned to ballroom.

It is going to be great to finally see Blanca gain the love she deserves–and Jeremy Pope is HOT! We are also looking forward to seeing an older Quincy and Shelly. After three years in ballroom culture they should be pros.

There is no set premiere date for Season 3 of Pose as of yet but we do know it will be in 2021, due to delays by COVID-19. You can be sure we will keep you in the know! Check back soon and OFTEN!
