Fans may be upset over Netflix’s decision to cancel Luke Cage, but series star Mike Colter is taking it in stride. If Colter is angry, he isn’t showing it. Instead, the actor is feeling gratitude and a sense of optimism.

“I am forever grateful to Marvel and Netflix for letting me portray such a prolific character, and I thank you amazing fans,” Colter tweeted. “As one door closes, another has opened, with the birth of my daughter this week. A lot of great memories. Time to make more. Always forward, forward always.”

The “as one door closes” phrasing sounds as if Colter isn’t expecting to play the character again. With Iron Fist already canceled, one primary spot for a Luke Cage cameo is gone. The other would be the third season of Jessica Jones, as Colter’s Cage debuted in the first season of that series.

With Luke Cage canceled, though, Colter will have been released from his contract. He is now free to sign on for any other projects without worry of scheduling conflicts with his former Netflix job. That could render him unavailable should Marvel and the streaming giant come calling for a cameo.
