Following his supporting role in Nexflix’s critically acclaimed Marvel show Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, portrayed by Mike Colter, is set to star in his own Netflix Series this fall. At the San Diego Comic-Con, fans were treated with the first official look at Marvel’s Luke Cage and needless to say it is incredible! The show follows one of Marvel’s most indestructible heroes as he takes on the criminals in Harlem, New York. In the trailer, Cage flaunts his invincibility and sheer strength as he wrecks a gang of goons before coming face to face with Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes (Mahershala Ali), who presumably will be the show’s primary antagonist.
The world is ready for a bulletproof black man. It’s got a ’90s vibe but very much of today.
Set for released on September 30, 2016, Cage is joined by Misty Knight (Simone Missick), Erik LaRay Harvey (Diamondback) and of course, Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson). During the Luke Cage panel, showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker promises the show will deliver a perfect blend of the 90’s with all the action of this modern age of heroes. Luke Cage is definitely not going to be holding back when it premieres.
Luke Cage is the third out of the four members of the Defenders, who will join forces in an Avenger’s style team up titled Marvel’s Defenders.
