Marvel’s Luke Cage is right around the corner, and Netflix has today released a brand new batch of images from the series which follows Daredevil and Jessica Jones. These put the focus on Mike Colter’s titular hero as well as offering up a fresh look at Misty Knight.
Comic book fans will know that she has a heroic future of her own ahead of her if this show follows the source material, though that happening remains to be seen for now. Also below is a brand new featurette which sheds some light on what else is to come in Luke Cage.
The official synopsis for the series reveals that after a sabotaged experiment leaves him with super strength and unbreakable skin, Luke Cage becomes a fugitive trying to rebuild his life in modern day Harlem, New York City. But he is soon pulled out of the shadows and must fight a battle for the heart of his city–forcing him to confront a past he had tried to bury.
Colter is joined in Luke Cage by Simone Missick as Misty Knight, Frank Whaley as Rafael Scarfe, Mahershala Ali as Cottonmouth, Theo Rossi as Shades, Alfre Woodard as Mariah Dillard, and Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple, a character Luke met back in Jessica Jones.
The show will premiere on Netflix at the end of September, so there’s not long to go now…
