Luke Cage is the next Marvel/Netflix show up to bat.

With an official release date on June 22nd, the second season of the Netflix show looks absolutely amazing.

Of course, things can’t be too perfect for long. Forces are eyeing Harlem.

Okay, we already have a perfectly great antagonist with Mariah Dillard (Alfre Woodard) and her boyfriend Shades (Theo Rossi).

It looks like that some people have their eyes on Harlem from other parts of the city.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Annabella Sciorra (The Sopranos, Jungle Fever) will join the season two cast in a key role. Sciorra will play Rosalie Carbone. The character is described as “a dangerous downtown criminal underworld power player with an eye, and an agenda, toward Harlem.”

In the comics, Rosalie Carbone is a “mafia princess” and a love interest to Frank Castle, who was going by the name Johnny Tower.

In addition for her work on The Sopranos and Jungle Fever, Sciorra has an upcoming role in season two of the Netflix show, G.L.O.W. She was also in the news as one of the actresses to speak out against Harvey Weinstein.

Luke Cage showrunner, Cheo Hodari Coker had this to say about Sciorra’s addition to the cast.

“I’ve been a huge fan of hers since Spike Lee’s Jungle Fever, and Anabella Sciorra is no joke as Rosalie Carbone. You haven’t seen her this gangster since her thrilling turn as Tony’s formidable flame Gloria Trillo on season 3 of The Sopranos. I’m thrilled her introduction to the Marvel Universe will be on Marvel’s Luke Cage.”

Well it certainly sounds exciting!

Luke Cage season two will be released on June 22nd on Netflix.
