Danny Rand and Luke Cage won't be the only heroes having a crossover moment in Luke Cage Season 2, and the new clip below reveals that Colleen Wing and Misty Knight will get a chance to team up as well. The video shows Misty and Colleen doing some day drinking and getting rudely interrupted by a guy who has some beef with Misty. And don't go thinking this is all about verbal jabs, because things quickly devolve into a classic bar room brawl led by two of Marvel TV's most badass women.
Misty and Colleen managed to drop their assailants despite Misty not even having her bionic arm just yet. Colleen gave her friend a bit of tough love by at first refusing aid, which nearly inspired Misty enough to handle all those attackers on her own! Of course, the Iron Fist regular soon stepped in as the criminals began to swarm, and she whipped out some of the patented kung fu skills that made her one of the shining stars opposite Finn Jones' Danny Rand. Both women bested the foes pretty easily in the Luke Cage clip, although it's not like anyone should be surprised by that, considering who we're talking about.
This particular Luke Cage moment seems to be more about Colleen helping Misty cope with the loss of her arm, rather than something advancing the main overarching plot. One thing this clip does reveal, however, is that Misty apparently doesn't have her bionic arm at the start of Luke Cage Season 2. This may mean that Rand's company will be involved in granting her the tech for her new arm, as some had theorized after The Defenders. It may also mean the Iron Fist and Luke Cage crossover happens very early on in Season 2, although it's certainly possible that Season 2 will hold off on Misty getting a new arm until much later.
The Misty and Colleen clip is hopefully a small taste of what's in store for the Iron Fist crossover in Season 2, and it better not be the only time Luke Cage pays homage to Daughters of the Dragon. Following The Defenders, rumors swirled that the groundwork was being laid for Simone Missick and Jessica Henwick to team up for comic-inspired heroics, and it looks as though Luke Cage found time to set that up amidst putting Luke and Danny's Heroes For Hire-inspired scenes together.
Luke Cage showrunner Cheo Coker has said he hopes Marvel fans warm up more to Iron Fist after watching Season 2 of Luke Cage. Provided Danny and Luke gel as well as Colleen and Misty did in this scene, and as they did in Defenders, there's a strong possibility that fans will embrace Iron Fist Season 2 with more open arms. But if not, perhaps Marvel can shift focus to bringing Wing and Knight's Daughters of the Dragon arcs to viewers sooner rather than later.
