There’s a little over two months to go before Luke Cage comes to Netflix, and we get our next dose of Marvellous storytelling that’s free(ish) from the constraints of Marvel’s grander cinematic universe.
To help build the hype, a new trailer has been released featuring the supporting star of Jessica Jones coming into his role as a hero. The trailer shows plenty of action with a slight hint of humour as we see Cage get repeatedly shot, stabbed and punched before shrugging the damage off like one would an autumn leaf that had landed on a coat.
We are also given a glimpse at some of the other characters that will be joining the action. It should come as little surprise that Rosario Dawson will be reprising her role as “nurse to the vigilantes” Claire Temple, but we are also given a glimpse at the antagonist of the series, Cottonmouth, played by Mahershala Ali. On top of that is Frankie Faison appearing as a mentor figure for Cage to seek words of wisdom on how to do the right thing.
Luke Cage looks like it will be another stunning outing for Marvel and Netflix, time will tell how it all turns out.
Luke Cage is out September 30th on Netflix
