Mike Colter’s bad ass, almost indestructible Luke Cage heads to Harlem, NY in an attempt to live a normal life. But hey, who wants to see Cage buying groceries and paying the bills? The man can take freakin’ bullets!
With Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s “Shimmy Shimmy Ya” pumping, our first teaser trailer shows off a sequence that sees Cage take down an array of goons, all while being smacked with a ton of bullets. We’re also given a look at Mahershala Ali’s Cornell Stokes, aka Cottonmouth, a crime boss that goes head to head with our hero.
Also on offer below is an awesome sizzle reel that has been released as part of Comic-Con. It puts together footage from Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage, with extra tidbits for the latter. And yes, The Punisher is there as well.
We’re ridiculously hyped for what Netflix has in store with Luke Cage. September 30 (U.S. date) can’t come soon enough.
