Between the success of Black Panther and female-fronted projects like Wonder Woman, it seems like diversity and representation in front of -- and behind -- the camera has finally become increasingly important to filmmakers and audiences alike.

She hopes this will be a tipping point, where eventually people will start to see more characters like herself on the big screen: people with disabilities.
Video: Luke Cage isn't a trained fighter, an expert private investigator, or a warrior blessed with mystical energies, but he is a damn-near indestructible hero with a good head on his shoulders and a solid moral compass. But how does an unbreakable man fight someone who can render him completely vulnerable? Netflix's new trailer for Luke Cage gives us a taste of what Harlem's hero is up against in season two.
The next season of Netflix's Iron Fist show just a hell of a lot more interesting -- because Marvel just confirmed that the cast is getting an upgrade in the form of one of the best parts of another Netflix show: Luke Cage's Misty Knight.
