LUKE CAGE Debuts a Brand New Trailer

By on August 9, 2016

Following on from last month’s Comic Con tease comes a full two and a half minute trailer for Netflix’s new superhero TV series Luke Cage.

Jessica Jones fans were first introduced to Cage, a fellow superhuman with unbreakable skin and incredible strength, in season one when the private investigator was forced to murder his wife while under the influence of her nemesis Killgrave.

While Jones and Cage went on to become sometime-lovers, Cage ultimately chose to go his own way before the series end, leaving Jessica to take down Killgrave single-handedly.

The new series finds Cage a fugitive who is attempting to rebuild his life in Harlem. However he is soon called upon to be a hero and face the past he has tried to run from.

In addition to Mike Colter as Luke Cage, the new series stars Alfre Woodard as local Harlem politician Mariah Dillard, who hopes to clean up the streets where she grew up. Dillard is also cousin to Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes (played by Mahershala Ali) who is shaping up to be Cage’s nemesis this season.

Luke Cage also stars Sonia Braga as Soledad Temple, Frank Whaley as Detective Scarfe and Simone Missick as Cage’s bionic-armed associate Misty Knight.

13 episodes of Luke Cage are coming your way on Netflix September 30, 2016.
