LUKE CAGE Needs a New Wardrobe (Again) In First Clip From New Netflix Series

By on August 27, 2016

What’s the worst thing about being super strengthy, impossibly handsome and impervious to flying objects?

Having to buy new clothes of course!

In this first sneak peek clip from Marvel’s new Luke Cage series (yes, we’re sorry it’s not longer too) Luke (Mike Colter) tackles some goons in a local boxing club in Harlem, but it looks like these guys haven’t heard of him, judging by the number of bullets they let rip in his direction.

But oh dear! As expected, Luke is impervious to their attempted take down, with the exception of possibly needing a(nother) new outfit.

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. Also on board are Sonia Braga as Soledad Temple, Frank Whaley as Detective Scarfe and Simone Missick as Cage’s bionic-armed associate Misty Knight.

Marvel’s Luke Cage drops its entire first season Sept. 30, on Netflix. But if you can’t get enough of Luke you’ll be able to catch him again in season 2 of Jessica Jones, season 3 of Daredevil, season 1 of Iron Fist, and of course in an all star team up in Marvel’s Defenders — all coming soon to Netflix.
