Isaiah Mustafa Unleashes his Inner Luke Cage

Though there is a dearth of black superheroes on both the comic page and the silver screen, it’s not for lack of trying on the part of “Black Hollywood.”  A Luke Cage movie has actually been floating around in creative limbo for years.  IMDB lists a screenplay credited to none other than Ben Ramsey.  John Singleton was to helm the project at one point, with Tyrese Gibson slated to play the fabled hero for hire.  Alas, the project doesn’t seem to be any closer to becoming a reality despite all the names that have been attached to it over the years.
