Claire Temple's mother will be making her debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe during the Luke Cage series in 2016.
Sonia Braga, of Kiss of the Spider Woman, Moon Over Parador, and Brothers & Sisters, has joined the Netflix series to play Soledad Temple. Her daughter, Claire, was introduced in this year's Daredevil series.
"A character as strong as Claire needs an equally powerful mother, and with Sonia we found the perfect actress to deliver the stellar performance we needed,” said Executive Producer/Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb. “In Marvel’s Luke Cage, fans will now get a chance to see where Claire got the fire we love her for.”
Mike Colter made his debut as Luke Cage in the Jessica Jones series, which is now available on Netflix.
Luke Cage is set for release on Netflix in 2016.
