Marvel and Netflix have released a brand new trailer for Luke Cage, and it sheds some light both on his journey to becoming a hero and the villains he’ll be squaring off with in Harlem.
After being introduced in Jessica Jones last year, fans have been desperate to see more of Luke Cage in action, and with the first wave of reviews for the series proving to be overwhelmingly positive, they more than likely won’t end up being disappointed by the show!
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 this coming Friday, so there’s not long to go now…
