Marvel's Luke Cage: 44 Easter Eggs You Probably Missed

Sweet Christmas!

Luke Cage Easter Eggs
Netflix

By now it's almost a cliche to say that Netflix and Marvel have done it again: so far they've made four shows, and every one of them has been incredibly entertaining, extremely well made and crucially, leave fans wanting more from this particular, more grown-up arm of the MCU.

The latest show is something entirely different, eschewing the hard-boiled noir of Jessica Jones and the gritty violence of Daredevil for something more like a homage to blaxploitation that still retains something of Marvel in there. That is a hell of an achievement.

Inevitably, the show is rife with Easter Eggs, references and homages, as well as some eye-catching cameos, and picking through the 13 excellent episodes for them is a hugely rewarding experience. If this doesn't make you want to go back and read more Luke Cage and more Defenders comics, there's something wrong with you.

Here are all the biggest and best Easter Eggs and references in Marvel's Luke Cage...
