Get ready to jump into the world of Luke Cage. The fan favorite is the latest Marvel character to land his own series on Netflix and now, you can check out the first trailer for his upcoming debut series.
Fans may have gotten to know Luke Cage (Mike Colter) a bit on the first season of Jessica Jones, but it’s clear we’re about to get up close and personal with the antisocial former marine and wrongfully accused ex-convict.
The trailer starts off by teasing Cage’s origin story as a seemingly ordinary man who falls victim to a sabotaged experiment which ends up giving him superhuman strength and unbreakable skin. From there, Cage has every intention of keeping his nose down, but in the end, reluctantly decides to use his powers for good. He quickly finds himself becoming Harlem’s defender, but being a superhero comes with its own set of consequences.
“This city is supposed to represent our hopes and dreams,” says Cage at one point. “We have to fight for what’s right every single day.”
If the gritty trailer is anything to go by, we’re in for one wild, action-packed ride when Luke Cage finally hits Netflix!
Luke Cage season 1 will be available to stream in its entirety on September 30.
