Mike’s Show “Evil” Renewed for Season 4

It’s official, Mike’s show EVIL has been renewed for season four. Mike plays the part of priest-to-be David Acosta. Not sure what this might mean for his possible return to LUKE CAGE given Paramount Plus and Disney+ are competing streaming services, but we can dream. Given what we’ve seen with he and Krysten Ritter recently hanging out together one can assume the obvious. Or at least a possibility of the obvious.

Evil’s future beyond season 3 confirmed by Paramount+

Deeper into the supernatural world we go?

Evil season 4 has been given the go-ahead by Paramount+.

This supernatural chiller premiered its third season just last month, bringing back Katja Herbers’ forensic psychologist Dr Kristen Bouchard and Mike Colter’s experimental priest-in-waiting David Acosta.

The streaming service’s president of original scripted series Nicole Clemens shared in a statement (via TVLine): “We couldn’t be more excited to be terrified by what Robert and Michelle [King] create for season four with our outstanding cast bringing it to life.”

Evil is in stellar company when it comes to recommissioned TV this year. Apple TV+ wonder Severance landed a second season, Netflix’s Heartstopper has a second and third in the making, and Prime Video’s diabolical comic book saga The Boys will be back for a fourth.

When the show was first announced, Colter himself commented on its parallels with modern America.

“The country is full of people who have very strong opinions about religion and politics,” he said. “What we’re trying to do is to open a discussion between everyone so that, regardless of how you feel, having a strong opinion doesn’t mean you can’t listen. If you can listen, then you might be able to learn something.”

Co-creator Michelle King went on to acknowledge the pertinence of Evil’s central theme: two people can fundamentally disagree with each other but still respect and listen.

“What we liked about the show is the ability to show two people with very different ideas about the spiritual. Someone’s who’s truly sceptical and someone who is a true believer,” she said.

“We like the idea of them being able to express their feelings and listen to each other respectfully and yet have a dialogue.”

Evil streams in the US on Paramount+.

Fans Want “Heroes For Hire” With Mike Colter & Finn Jones

According to an article in We Got This Covered, fans are discussing a reteam between Mike’s LUKE CAGE and his THE DEFENDERS co-star Finn Jones as IRON FIST/DANNY RAND. Given the most recent image of Mike with his JESSICA JONES co-star, Krysten Ritter, has been circulating and the possibility of him showing up on the show with Krysten, the article was very dismissive of Finn’s inclusion. It erroneously states Finn wasn’t part of the promo Disney+ showed when the Netflix shows made the transfer to their streaming platform. I’d say that’s very disrespectful of him because he was part of it. In fact all of the press for the migration of the shows to Disney+ plus has included Finn in the brand.

Fans demand a ‘Heroes for Hire’ show, Iron Fist included

Slowly but surely, the former Netflix shows are being absorbed back into official Marvel Cinematic Universe canon, with recent events indicating that a potential Heroes for Hire miniseries isn’t the most far-fetched idea in the world.

Not only has the Defenders Saga been rebranded and added to Disney Plus, but Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock returned to the fray in Spider-Man: No Way Home, Vincent D’Onofrio’s Wilson Fisk was reintroduced as the big bad of Hawkeye, and Marvel’s own website acknowledged the pair’s three-season run on a rival streaming service as being part of mainline continuity.

Krysten Ritter and Mike Colter set the internet ablaze when they posed for a photo together, while Jon Bernthal is happy to shout from the rooftops that he’s open to playing the Punisher again. With that in mind, perhaps the biggest surprise about MCU fans on Reddit calling on a Heroes for Hire show is the fact that Finn Jones’ Iron Fist is included in the conversation.

Jones’ Danny Rand wasn’t even part of the promos showcasing the Defenders arriving on Disney Plus, so we can probably rule him out of the running. MCU enthusiasts were recently celebrating Simone Missick’s Misty Knight, though, while Jessica Henwick admitted she turned down a role in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings partly in the hope that Colleen Wing would be brought back into the action.

It might be a long shot, but the churn of content is never going to stop, and there are plenty of far worse pitches out there than getting the band back together in a Heroes for Hire project.

“I’m Charlie Walker” is Based on a Real Life Event

Mike’s film I’M CHARLIE WALKER is based on a real life event. Below is a little information on that.

‘I’m Charlie Walker’ Revisits One Of the Biggest Oil Spill Clean Ups In History

The biopic, ‘I’m Charlie Walker’, starring Mike Colter who played the epic character of Luke Cage is heading to the big screen.

Back in 1971, the story of Charlie Walker, a Black Man with one truck and big dreams began. In the early morning of Jan. 18, 1971, two tankers owned by Standard Oil collided under the Golden Gate Bridge, spilling 800,000 gallons of oil spilled into the San Francisco Bay. It would be the largest oil spill in Bay Area history, and an event that changed Charlie’s life forever.

After the spill, 99 percent of the workers were unionized white truckers, hired to clean up the city’s major tourist draws, but through sheer luck and persistence, Walker landed a contract to clean up distant Stinson Beach in Marin. He got the job none of the white truckers wanted nor did they want to take orders from a Black man. His smarts and tenacity rubbed a lot of “white folks” the wrong way, simply for being present.

Despite constant racial tensions, 5 Million Dollars and 30 Days later Charlie managed to clean up the coastline in record time to the States satisfaction. The oil company continued to harass Charlie all the way to criminal court. Charlie Walker is an 88 year old living legend that fought the system and won.
